Every moveable of wonder, from all world,
Are here - Serpents, Owls, Demons, Poltergeists,
The Testicles bearing tree, The Stone Eaters, the Man that breaths spears,
The Penile root, Incubuses, Ventriloquists, the Headless being,
The Chameleon – eyed Burst of bad omens,
The Sand Dunes, the Wadis, Sand beds,
Of Giant foot – prints on rock masses,
All unimaginable freaks of nature,
All marvelous features of a desert:
It’s Dullness, Loneliness and Carnage,
Of Ghosts, their Malice, Madnesses and Melees;
A State of jumbled impossibilities,
A true Epitome of Scrambled knowledge,
Solid and Beings Molten into thin Air;
Reduced to Zero identity, by Name and Nature –
No nature, nor Impression of Life,
The land of many Invisibilities and Stills.
NOTE: This is a section of my 100 page poetry anthology
And you massacred all innocent olive trees,
Multilating all mugumo trees,
That sheltered your mathembo,
You startled the spirits of Vuna and Kyutu,
With axes you slew all what’s green.
You ruthlessly tossed their bodies into fire,
And used their bones in your housing,
Leaving their feet pinned to the ground,
You enjoyed their dry bone’s fire: mallevolent.
You invented our empires with lethal weapons,
Socking us all to death,
With saws you cut and ripped our bodies,
You made saw dust from our bones;
Your ears deaf to our cries of pain.
Out of our patience you succeeded,
We cooperated and didn’t attack back,
But we all watched helplessly,
As you brutally multilated our bodies,
We died all in your mighty hands.
