Poem Of The Day

Ebola

Emissary of Death doing ding-dong round

Culling coteries of class and crass

Across continents in crisp, clumsy cuts.

‘Want me popping at you, Poet?’

‘Ah! Scion of the Grim Ripper

‘What say have I in that?

Mortal am I on this coil.

My time is my time though,

Hades, Heavens harry me not not;

To you we are all bound’.

 

– ‘Nowo Osigbesan, August, 2014
