Wilderness In The Rainforest

It is a tree of five hundred one and twenty different fruits with nine others totally disenfranchised in a garden of more than a colour of grapes a black bunch out of every five same is its numerical contribution in such defined location A flowing stream, originating from the Nok aboriginals has created different hundreds of tributaries in its inland is a town where fertility is ambidextrous and the most diversified of the colourful flying beauties is found within its territory A family possessing envious wealth but seemingly a myth b’cos of the Mephistophelian deeds of its guardians its house, built on land where toothpick germinates to a monstrous tree and man power capable of producing half a continent of sky scrapers yet six out of every ten of its members are less comfortable than a pet in the west

    I respect this poem. This is an amazing piece of work. I love Nigerian songs and nollywood movies are very entertaining. My fav "its house, built on land where toothpick germinates to a monstrous tree and man power capable of producing half a continent of sky scrapers". #7

    Great original work!, I haven't read anything like it. Culture, history, and metaphor, an amazing combination. It is direct without being uncomfortable.

    The ending is the summit of poetry... People do value pets more than humans. This speaks volume about humanity. We may be confused who the animals really are. Brilliant use of metaphors to convey your message. Keep exciting me Funom!
