UNTILL THEN

When water 
desert
The river 
basin
And tree 
deserts
The forest.

When light 
desert
The burning 
lamp
And 
whiteness 
desert
The snow.

When breeze 
deserts
The blowing 
fan
And wetness 
desert
The tongue.

When spines 
desert
The citrus 
tree
And blood 
desert
The heart.

When lines 
desert
The elders' 
palm
And fruit 
desert
The orchard.

When hills 
desert
The Ekiti land
And 
Remembrance 
desert
The Hero.

When sand 
deserts
The hourglass
And picture 
deserts
The mirror.

Then,
words can 
Desert
our pen!
