POEM 278: OGBUOHA ONE!


Behold your king, Ogbuoha one!
Crowned with the colour of blood
He whose head mocks the crown
with policies that impoverishes.

Behold your king, Ogbuoha one!
Clutching the sacred ofor
He who desecrates the throne
and makes, a pebble, the rock of Aso.

Behold your king, Ogbuoha one!
Clad in the colour of blood
He who silenced the Voice of us
with a thousand reptilians – Afara.

Behold your king, Ogbuoha one!
Adorned in cosmetic smiles
He who mocks the rest of us
with a spectacle of illusions.

Behold your king, Ogbuoha one!
Behold your king! Igbo kwenu!
He comes with myth and gory!
Oburu ma anyi kwenu.
