Sickness - Poem by tochukwu nwankpa
Like a tranquilizer it weakens man
It could render you immobile.
Like a scorpion sting it pierces my skin.
Will i bask in the reality of uncertainty.
Where men go and contemplate on their return.
It makes giants fragile and their desire
To conquer are conquered.
Like missiles from Iraq
It destroys the body's system
Creating havoc in Bangkok.
And rendering many homeless in Zimbabwe.
Engulfing destinies like a macrophage.
Giving many a new package.
I wish it could become extinct.
As we wake up it was all cock and bull.
But sickness reveals man's weakness.
Engraving in our lives an indelible mark.
A curse and a blessing in disguise.
