Lightmania Poem by SylvaOnyema Uba

Lightmania

Rating: 5.0


Darkness looms

The city of oil

Giant of Africa
Lurking in the shadows

It is a city of black nights

When shall the third eye
See the craft man's light?
Empty promises swims in the basket

The green, white, green
Drumming the Golden Age
With charcoal and candle

So I humbly ask

When shall the third eye
See the craft man's light.

The poet wonders when power will be uninterrupted- When shall the third eye see the craft mans light?

Superb! A humble question indeed... Preach! Let the politicians read it; leadership is a selfless position
