The Desirable Change - Poem by Tony Adah

The unchanging scenery
of the desert that hugs the land
And the floods still that ravages it
A venting canal of banal waters
Quenching the scorch of the sun
And in between a desirable change.

The destitute prowling the streets
And the affluence of the affluent
And in between a bridging change
We shot ourselves on the leg
In the thievery of the Commonwealth
A yawning gap and in between
A desirable change.
If a change must beat the status quo
Of its ailing deeds
Then it must sprout from the home
To the public square
And blossomly overwhelm the malaise
Of national survival
