PRISONERS OF SAVALTION
by Falope Aanuoluwapo

Listen! Ye fools
For how long will thou last in thy slumber?
Wake! Shake off the drool
And ye shall be strengthened
Pursue the cause of thy salvation

For prisoners art thou
From the dawn of thy independence
And prisoners will thou be
Till you speak up for yourselves

The Powerless
by Louis Zo

We were born into this---
toils of tangled gods’ maws
gnawing us raw
as we wiggle and crawl

What is hapiness? Why art they smiling?
Perhaps, their hearts are in ec'tacy!
What is sadness? Why art they sobbing?
Perhaps, their hearts are scythed a-twain!

Now that my thoughts are on the floor
And when I opened the door
And everyone saw
They gasped and ran
In fear

Hurting from torture

The Earth whimpers to the skies

Who turn their frosty cheeks

Betrayed, the Earth weeps

Black ancient tears

Daddy Monster
by Louis Zo

Daddy, daddy, what is it you do,
Your green bleak skin, blotched and chewed?

I serve our kin, our Kings, to name a few,
who, with Their big, black arms, have ruled and rule the rules.
I kiss Their boots, lick Their hooves and pledge to do
anything a fanatic, a fool, a tool would do;
Ah-woo, Ah-woo.

Daddy, daddy, what is it you do,
