Renegade - Poem by Bolami lawal
Why does your luster
Gave the illusion of pearl?
Why do you flash your teeth
Only in open hypocrisy?
Offering moments of pleasure; and
Springing eternal anguish and pains
Sweet poor brother,
Why do we seem so closely apart?
Why do you give extorted kisses
And betrayed your own?
Happy to be the renegade priest
Destroying the path upon which you crawled
With no iota of guilt
Finally dear brother,
When the wind blows again,
When the skies pour its warm on us again
And our little shrub gets a taste of sunlight
Our rage will be against you,
Against your empty promises of freedom
That broke the bond of brotherhood!
