Politics Today

Submitted by Anikulapo

the sun will overhaul you
to an orbit of hunger
if you aren’t careful of
how you coordinate yourself
because there is no different
between you—
and the children of bourgeois
who attend Cambridge or Oxford
for new resurrection; and you die here
or perish as a prey to a vulture,
who has eaten your eyes to hunger
and frustration—
My people, be wise, before you
die like those old martyrs
who live like impunity last
forever. Be warned!
