SITTING BY THIS COLD WINDOW…A POEM BY KAYODE ODUMOSU

SITTING BY THIS COLD WINDOW

Sitting in this awful total darkness
Muttering agony to blank, unfeeling walls
Sitting by my favorite but cold window
Muttering anguish from subsidy corruption

Recalling misery from daily scarcities
Thinking zero power supply after the waste
Recalling same old, wicked, inhuman lies
Thinking of their parting slaps to our faces

Remembering debates about change or not
Hoping it’s just not a slogan, another lie
Remembering stealing by subsidy demons
Hoping change will plug the evil wickedness

Sitting, muttering what could have been
Recalling, thinking the torment and the pain
Remembering the scams and stinging blows
Hoping for warm walls and window again…..July, 2015
