AGONY

Written by: k k iloduba jnr

Lagos booms
Portharcourt blooms,
Abuja blossoms
in the loveliness of my cream.

Niger sings,
Kaduna cheers,
Kano salaams,
in the rivers of my tears.

Alone....all alone,
decay and desolation gather days
and in woe my nights.
All things that love the sun mourn
on every side of me.

Look!.......look!
Look at my darkly face.
My story attends in tears and sorrow.
Look...look now in my eyes,
in one stride comes anguish.
