    I have not been to Nigeria but I have been to Zambia and I found that I could relate well to your poem. It was both graphic and eloquent. Thank you for submitting it

Best Poem of okoye charles

A Walk Through The Cemetry

Whose homes are these, they never say
Both big and small, here they all lay
Among the gnawing rodent and the hungry tick
Ticking while the lonesome time dawdles away

Its red petals are gentle, lovely and thick
Outside, the deflowered world awaits
Its' so withered, so appalling, so sick.

A walk through the cemetry,...
