Ousted By The Pope & His Lover - Poem by Seyi Akin

You asked, I can see the wagging of the tongue,
Memories of that venture at Ikoyi,
The same which was done to You and many
I heard your question unvoiced, you wait the news
Did it work?
You wish,
I wished it did, It’s been a hellish sojourn
Instructions too many for undiscerning prats
The war I feared, I thought I had a princess
Don’t envy me,
A vain seedless voyage. The one unexpected
Affection affected from foreign affairs for friends
Watched by thousand intruders,
The bed a spot, where audience sits to analyze
Tearing the hope that once I carried
Did you ask for him?
He came but was taken,
how can he stay in a brutish barn
Where demons’ rents and rants in human,
A controlling which was never envisaged
A vengeful bedfellow armed to destroy
She rouses against saintly order,
Journeying on the tile of earthly Jury to destroy
Avalanche of lies as fortress for her vengeance
Rebellion and passionate rage,
Flaunts and flexing on the luxury of matrimony
Don’t take the route,
Rebellion seeks earths Judge holding a Bible
Pretending before the law for vengeance
To punish the one, he once held
It is just two years into the groaning, added
To sorrow of a loss, ousted by the one I love
Accompanied by fellowship pope pretending and purloining
Deceived to think I have a home
Robbed by a woman
Disgraced by Sunday worshipers
Helped by the religion they despised
