Begot the nation

 Begot the nation

By Jessica Otaikhor Osagie

Awakening of a clan in agony
Secret hope of knowledge
Balding arouses shocks of minded and crest of fantasy
Striking features of distinction
Cattle’s life matters in an inanimate zoo
Normal language of nominal government
Father derived pleasure from his pet
Regular alternation of an initial consonants
The human life matters no more
The future of her child is now a fallacy
Masses are oppressed
Combined with classic suffixes
Alarm yelled at me get up
Lighting danced across the sky.

The part to aim
Jerking wheel or swerving in great danger
Beware danger of the road has just past
Is this not a failed government?
failures stare everyone in the eyes
Lawlessness, criminality, poverty and unemployment
For the history rectify the future
Foe and toe
Gazing and farming against act inimical
To sweet dreams
And peace
Who speaks in Allentown
If we fail to speak right now
We will right to write wrong days to come.
