The Man Before The Mud (I) Poem by Oyehan Opeyemi Akinkunmi

The Man Before The Mud (I)

Rating: 0.5
 


Upon the triviality of a dream
A word proclaimed a world after
...of the gentiles;
The bringer of tidings, and Warner
What they have of the Torah
And the Virgin's Gospel
The augur of whose clemency
...shall be seek.

Enkindled ardour of the blissful crib
For the dried to turn green
...of the blood;
O'er the easel of the globe
The womb and the loin
And the haunch and the sands
The aegis of whose ancestry
...shall be clean.

After whom no other stands
As the last bairn at senescence
...of the prophets;
That dries up through him
The deaf and closed heart
And seems as a bone to pick
The anodyne of whose feet
...shall be gathered.
