The Enemy Within - Poem by Tony Adah

The cow lost its hoaves
its ears, its tongue and all its head
To the merriment of man
They call it one delicacy- nkwobi
And this is where man is enemy to himself
He sings cholesterol and high blood pressure
seeking to detoxify
Meanwhile the cow is constant
In his meals.
The doctor is himself
Still he seeks another
In ignorance of the self.
