Best Poem of Tony Adah

The Drums Of War.

The sound of war
Is the sound of death
War ruins the world and war ruins man
The ambience of creativity
Is killed and buried in battlefields.

The seed of war lies dormant
In the aftermath of one war
And war is to be dreaded
Equally as we dread dead.

Read the full of The Drums Of War.

Homegrown Democracy

Our homegrown democracy
Got a bash,
Fledgling as it is
There is a huge appettite
For the content of our heritage
Than for patriotism.
And the wealth is going
Going into individual's pouches
In lieu of the common good.
