May It Rain - Poem by Samuel Segun Toluwalase

Let it be
That the weather that gathers up West

And the clouds that hover over the coast
Lead us on

The skies are dark
The vallies creap up the hotness of a thousand years

We kneel with peeling skins
And the dry hurtful lips

The ground was hard of heat
The tall trees breed no leaves
