Night - Poem by asaolu kolawole ifedayo

i see her coming silently from the east
with louder tuwhittu-whoo
accompany her like a lengendary of inky folklore
and her sophoric drum
sounding for all men to visit the kingdom of dream

And like a titanic tail
her breast
crawling that giraffe's neck
tourching sky end
on a glimpse of her children
sucking magnificiently
from her dusky breast
whence my spirit too swerve slowly
onto the other side of snore

O! woman, you are a beauty under a mask
and your true posture is riding
on my dejected fence
i see you like a watching guard
holding flowers and foes
a common man as me
falling dizziness to the coolness of
your air that breezes dark

O! see, see this strange cow laying an egg
and our neighbour hen giving birth to a mule
miracle of foetus conceiving the pregnancy
of her own mother
a byzantine woman, whose sultry voice
seduced our ALADURA to her breast touch
turning him into a seapent to bite
all the careless dreamers

And amidst milion of night spider
spreading their deadly web
a mysterious trap for spirit riders
babies of darkness, set loosed to suck the sweetest blood
and slain destiny of un-annointed souls

Then i heard our prostitute gong
preaching peace passionately
from her breast drop.
She dissolves slowly like a boiling snow
and pave way for woman of dews glory
