1929 - Poem by gideon zerah ogbonna

What indecent radicallity
Consumed by the thought of want
Demand against command
I view like water on crocodile
With heavy grammatical vommit
Expression for unsatisfaction
To make reality, a dream

Unleashing emotional forcefull thoughts
On stakes, papers and trees
And display of fine crude artistery
On funny ricketty boards and flags
Having customized uniform in hearts
Regardless of roots, family, name

Pressing for unconditional, uncompromisin change
Leaving the crocodile like pillow
Helplessly absorbing, licking the vommit
And disabling gravitation on the earth
Eventually leaving sump tuous uncompromising legacy
That the weakest is now called the stronger gender
Because, with palm leaves they made the sun freeze
