Wake up! Wake up!! It's dawn
Time crawling stealthily slipping away to oblivion
What a doom lies awaiting treasure keepers
Oh,what a doom
The  world's listening ear has no choice
What an opinion do you think she has
When all she can do is listen with her hitching ears,
Begging. Indeed can she wait any longer for your manifestations?
Ripe is the hour
Yellow like fresh bananas from Benin
Pick it up and don't let it die
Here is a challenge to be your best
Please don't settle for less

    Thank you for sharing your poetry Opemipo. Poets here offer such diverse writings and to me it is a pleasure to read each and everyone. I will not be here at the Soup to read from Friday through Monday. I hope you will find mountains of inspiration during that time. I look forward to reading when I return. Have a great weekend. Love, Carol
