Above Their Ego - Poem by ONOJA ANTHONY

On the mountain where we hailed from
The coral from frangscent domidos
The stripes were made from gold
But the naked weapon was gotten from blood for they got them from serpent coral

These were times when men retrieved disgrace
Overblown with self-conservative greed
The pledge of how men undo men
Should this mountain serpent flee?

Since men cherish pride from pigs
Then I dedicate my honour to lower beings
Entangled by the pride of youth
Above the scandal of poverty
Even though the bliss of ASO rock sunk our fantasy
This we know belong to their kindred heads

When we lost this dreadful race
Above the edge of mountains
The wasteful bread of destiny
Shall the mourning of sons be heard in sunset of buried glory of anxious youth.
