If It Be But A Dream - Poem by Abednego Oghenechovwiere Omashone

If it be but a dream,
Just as uncle Festus
Had chanted it with us
And Mama Africa believes it’s a dream

Then when I’m I to wake up
From this unwholesome condition
From this unjustified suppression
From these whole things heating me up?

A lion had driven me to an island
To a lone tree, where I climb for safety
At top, there is a python; nature had left me no pity
Looking down, crocodiles surround the island.

If this be, but a dream,
Then I must wake up!
I must wake up
To end this night of horror,
Where everything is nothing, but terror.
Aye! I must wake up!

Still, the question comes again
When will that be?
