When in memory
Of exam tides

Their memory fails
Them to give
One another
They go a whispering in thunderous
Exchange
Of emptiness
As their future
They ‘ve chosen to destroy
And when we do them right
To the left they prefer to turn
Even pastured students
Cast away their sheep clothing
Only
To
Re-wear them
When exam tides are far over
Making us gullible
To cultish threats and near shooting
Even when the apex
Branches
Pretend to send us on sanitation
Just to ridicule our figures
And later turn their backs
Even when their trust they have withdrawn
Biting one another’s feets
Until fingerless feets
To their own coffins kick


ESE’S IN ROOM 31

The older the wine,
The stronger and merrier
So I feel,
As I march on
Victoriously
Into this new millennium
Three decades and one
Older
And may all,
That I ever desired
Wisdom
Health,
Wealth
A Godly wife,
And God fearing children
After Gods own heart,
Become mine,
As I celebrate,
My dawn of a new dispensation
