River ethiope has swallowed another big fish

River Ethiope has swallowed another big fish River Ethiope has swallowed another big fish She waves her tail large the size of her teeth River Ethiope has swallowed a big fish Her hungry is a mystery feed Her fangs cold like her broad hips She is a regurgitating beast chews her cods slowly she raises her prey up down up again and down then up the third time and. finally chews after some days in the belly vomit it prey stiff stilled ill many forgotten souls lie beneath her. deep River Ethiope has hijacked another student Like a hawk she dives prickly On its prey at a glance sweeps like cyclone and steals At the brink of her mouth another Final year scholar she drinks who Gone to be with the swim is gone into thin air only to be seen days later on top of her skin white, stiff still Eyes pop out. River Ethiope is a. beast She never get filled River Ethiope is found in Niger Delta area Located in Ethiope East, Delta state in Nigeria This poem is based on a true life story With close personal experience In my university days, Delta State university , Abraka 5/6/2020
