GHOSTLY TOWNS

By Adeola Ikuomola
Dark shadowy figures
On the ghostly towns
Bring the lights down
To raise bleak futures

Falsehood a garment
Transparency a tomb
Serpentine ligaments
Birth-rate the bombs

The windfall feathers
File on eerie murders
To castrate all fathers
With spayed mothers

Rich tables are fables
About common coins
With crumbled tables
Laughing pot to scorn
