O the rock! 

On the beggared habitation

Where our destinies drift like smoke

Journey in empty promises

Sceptre after sceptre  


Do not query those stolen from independence 

Where lies their fate

Their destination is known 

Bones made dead from amalgamation 

Pavements along the grave 

Where music strangely sung

Played by fugitives 

Soar in soured governance


No respite 

No soothing

Nothing can be done

To change the tide of the sea

The ship has sailed beyond oblivion

  • Ifeanyichukwu

    Dear L. B. Mek,

    It is absolutely emotive. With no hope I'm sight to the suffering depicted, it is deliberate to capture it in the poem.
    Thank you for your appreciation.
