LEAVING NO MARKS

                LEAVING NO MARKS

Water leeches squirm in blood
Next door boy snatching
A grilled chic drum stick
A game of chess
Sitting late hours.

Overnight
Vultures, predators and hyenas
Deadly pandemonium.

Burning torches, crude swords,
Iron rods, explosions in hand
Wiping a commune off.
Cries choked, screams of chastity
Gang rape-
Girl petrified eyes
A blooming bud squashed.

Hunter and the hunted 
Orphans and widows
Flames licking the last hope
Exodus,
Doleful moments
Relief camps, a farce.

Striping pant zip
To make cock sure.
Well set, predetermined
Your fear, your desire
Flared up.

Discussions, hand shakes
Cashew nut crushed over
Bisleri water
Cease fire.
Odour of burnt flesh and dreams
Lingering in air.

Gone are the lives
Gone are the hopes
Leave no space
No marks in history
Mass migrations, rapes and death
Same old story.
