Beside An Empty Bottle. - Poem by Bieze Josephat

Beside an empty bottle
Is an empty body
Empty of life.

The two friends
Lay side by side
Maybe consoling each other
Outside a drinking-den.

The idle public
Watch from a distant
Laughing at the common theme
Of abandonment.

Have we not heard about
Abandoned infants
Abandoned homesteads
Due to insecurity
Abandoned government projects
Due to embezzlement of funds
Abandoned justice
To victims of rape
Abandoned case files
For remandees
Abandonment everywhere.

I see the last drop
Determined to cling
To the mouth of the empty bottle
But for how long?
This empty body-
Has has lost its grip
To life.
