Ivan Chizurum Ezeigbo

(Nov.4th,1995 / Owerri)

Fire In The Pants


Like a storm in a teacup
Billowing from east to west
Trembling at it's foundation
In a horrible situation
A terrifying moment
Your life is dearest to you
And there arises
The scent of the burning Caribean ship's smoke
The blinding ligts of the Paris street lamps
It's like a fire
From your pants

My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
