When Love Fails, Man Fails - Poem by john chizoba vincent


Men are captivated by what they see,
The shinny bird deserve not to suffer
In the polluted air of love.
When love fails to actualise it purpose
Man fails to live up to his standard,
Teach your spirit about the end of love

Many has fallen into the prey of bloody casuality
In the street where injustice rain like water,
Days of little can be liken to the days of great
Harvest in the barns of fools.
I am not partial in dealing with the love drugs
But medicine of not being recognised in the
Atmosphere where love mock many can not be ignore.

Reason the face, reason the love of men,
Where reason fails, madness may take charge.
When love fails to make it right, man fails.
When love cries, men behold hatred in their hands
The barns of my father's yam has been emptied since
The day he sang to the birds of love pains, infidelity.
My mother's shinny nakedness was seen by a strange nation.

How be it that love takes two for righteous act?
Carry my emotions home when tears elude you
For the villagers are at home mourning for the dead.
I'll come soon in the dry season to ask of my
Penny in your hand but I failed again in love,
Take heart for the broken dream.
