Mama Mia!

By Nwachukwu Egbunikemaryandchilds

 

Tossed into a vicious sea
These waves shred
Almost drowning

Keep mute, it’s prejudice
Speak out, it’s intolerance
Sketch, and be judgemental

Darkness descends with rage
Night blankets all
Evil smiles unhindered

Clouds condense
Rains will come
With cymbals of thunder as company

All run amok
All inflicted with infirmity
All afflicted with pestilence

Humanity is shaken
Shredded with filth
Shrouded with silk

Hold me in your arms
Have my head on your bosom
And with your mantle wrap me safe.

 

‘Mama Mia’ is part Blazing Moon, a collection of poems by Nwachukwu Egbunike to be published in 2015 by Feathers and Ink.
