Confusion - Poem by Abiodun Adekoya

Here is full of sand
Here is full of water
Here is full of weed
Everywhere is full of wrath and chaos

What sand that sharpening our foots with contempt
And inflicted our toes with corn of tears?
Misery never chase away in haste
Unless its adversity is captured like slave

What water that sucking our plants like hookworm?
Harvest will yield no good profit here this season
Sunshine has also reaped our courage away
That makes dearth wailing in the house of desolation

What weed that creeping our movement like ocean tide?
Inside here is deadly and rich in boorish creatures
They have agreed to kick us back when we come
Just like snake chasing mouse out of his hole

Everywhere is full of wrath and chaos
Mind of the dark night become place of vices
Mankind become prophecy of doom and afflictions
Everywhere remain the picture of mind.
