Act Of War Poem by Tosin Adesokan

Act Of War

Rating: 5.0


The land and it's wishes 
They dwelled in riches 
They continued to dwell 
And was going well 

They boasted to acquire more 
Without afraid of war 
They always curious about something 
Whereas there was nothing 

They continued on their way 
But there was a day 
A war broke out 
The land refused to work out 

The war continue from year to year 
With no hope of heir 
Dwindled in their wishes 
Shortened in their riches 

The life of land glutton 
It's always rotten 
They withdrew from the war 
They cease to have more 

They asked the muse 
In whom the were fused
The outcome of the war 
Muse said nothing more 

I volunteered to be a remedy 
But the land was not yet ready 
The land said I look dryer 
In my view, they look older.
