'The Way They Walk' Poem by Ovi Odiete

'The Way They Walk'



'they walk like they have got oil well pumping in their living room, but actually they have got nothing, they see you and want you to go on bended knees but trust me they are loud speaking empty drums, they walk like they have gold mine digging in their backyard but trust me their empty vessels-they all have one thing in common which is pride and ignorance'

I feel all the self-righteous evil in the world in your stream of consciousness words. I've read 4 of your poems and enjoyed your perception of human emotions. I can feel you acting them out! Thanks for reading my new poem to Survivors Sorrow....will put you on my favorites.Marianne

Great description of the Cocky dear Ovi. This is just something different from the view of late Maya Angelou, in her poem Still I Rise. I strongly align with her view and surely take note of yours. Thanks for sharing.
