Merry-Go-Round Poem by Oyehan Opeyemi Akinkunmi

Merry-Go-Round



Veer curve recap in lassitude
back - forth, fleck and freckle
rotating circular carousel
seats for amuse, scary-fun.

Oblivious-
unmindful of their words
raise wars over disloyalty;
the proverbial statesmen
in armed arm, battled confound.

succeeded to profligates
advanced in dextrous blood,
murderers,
scavenged the stunning dark gold.

Lacklustre-
germane proponent besieged
fenced,
tensed and pressed,
miniature hush for bereaved
like a falling dried cocoa seed.

Back - forth, fleck and freckle
rotating circular carousel
spotted within, rolling;
Vision the race
of our status quo.
