Broken Dreams - Poem by segun Johnson Ozique

City of adventure is the land branded
The city a place is said sweet to swing
Where pavement is lined with riches
A place the big and bold do fortune deals
Neighbour to other in gutters eating craps
Yet even as misfortune is this devastating
Cursed city laid in wait to many cornered
The whirl persist sucking family and fortune
Roasted male consigned to ebb for morsel
The female the city’s pastoral graze turned
The few who quickly learned to live to filch
Become opportune city fortunate conjurers
