Their Eyes Open - Poem by samuel nze

Brightness of solar smirking
Encourages fruitful activity
Men look for money
Women for love
Their eyes open

Few hours ago
The bed was kept warm
Groggy balls
Looked wonderous
In strange states
Chasing summary delusions
Seeing events with eyes closed

Now the bustle
At last concerns them
Ambition speeds on
The clock on the mantlepiece
Keeps their eyes open.
