Senseless Talks - Poem by BAYO SALAWU
what your nation can do for you
what you can do for your nation”
And others of similar connotation
Are senseless talks from their mouths
What a hopeless hope
Expecting a set of twins
From a full-grown spinster?
Has it gone off their memory
That only nothing
Can emanate from nothingness?
What a thoughtless talk
Asking the lad to plough
And the lass to grow grains
With the humus of the land lynched?
What sort of casual care is that
Promising a monkey a living
With the bunch of bananas denied?
