The Departed - Poem by Jubril Balogun

A cloud of angst
Hangs over wonted lane
Minds born of tranquil
Soon tucked in time, quiantly away
Distinct, poise, erudity
Scribbling weathered plights
Weaving dexterity
Postdating their time
A shake from Shakespeare
The chin-up with Chinua
Inexplicable sphere
A touch of inevitability
A drive towards Demise
Its flippant wings bid a fright
Bearing the rehearsed dirge
Save for timely imprints
Endless echoes of immortality
