I Am Laughing - Poem by Tony Adah

There's wealth everywhere
In the earth
In the air
Inside water
I am a microbiologist
Without a microscope
And that's how
I am trained
By my one and only country
The opportunists are there
With only a cranial case
And they ask me to bow
Before the brother
Of a friend
So that the dividends of democracy
We fettered will rain upon my head
And I am laughing
At what I know
That no one else knows
And I know
Right in my heart
That I know
That I know the contents
Of the air, water and air
Do they know
That I know what I know?
And I am silent
As the redeemer lays booby traps
For the unsuspecting lot
Until the larvae leaves the cocoon.
