The Day The Sun Sang - Poem by ajayi olubunmi kolade

The moon stood,
The sea sank,
The mountains melted,
And no man died,
The day the Sun sang.

All birds blubbered,
All goats flew,
All insects sailed,
And no woman menstruated,
The day the Sun sang.

No shoe was worn,
No cloth washed,
No undies lined,
And no baby cried,
The day the Sun sang.

Whose eye saw?
Whose nose perceived?
Whose hand laboured?
And which being ate?
The day the Sun sang.

Only a star shone,
Only a match lit,
Only a wood burned,
And no life slept,
The day the Sun sang.

Mankind wailed,
Animals flinched,
Dead bodies respired,
And no creature ever wished,
That the Sun should ever sing!
