Poetic Land (Part 1) - Poem by Emmanuel Damilola Adeyemo

Outside I stand
Well surrounded with land;
Family Poaceae wears the crown
With its members as visible as dawn.
At my front stand the Musas,
So much guarded by their suckers.
Mrs. Carica papaya looks lonely,
Staring at her children soberly.
She nurses the fear of the future
For her helpless kids growing mature.
Family Solanaceae seems well represented
With the likes of the Capscicums so pungent,
Even the gorgeous Lycopersicon esculentum,
Loudly displaying her balls with the harvest-tone.
Miss Annas comosus is still single
But her dreadlocks signals her readiness to mingle.
The Cocorus olitoruses are astonishly obvious
In their shinning green clothes so chlorophyllous.
There is still a lot more to see
‘Cos around me are different other species.
