Poems of Idogun Esohe
Rest In Peace
I can feel your pain right now.
The pain of being lynched.
The pain of not being heard.
You were worried being stripped naked in front of the crowd,
but that shame suddenly turned into fear for a life,
when they put a tire on you.
You thought it was a nightmare,
because you had smiled that night dreaming of dying on your death bed advising your children.
But that bed had suddenly turned into mud,
