TEARS OF OIL by Awa Chigozie Jerome

Tears of oil

Graveyard of petals
Bloomed and buried
Right before the sun caress
Where lies the roots
Shedding tears of oil

Dialogue of drunk gloats
Today the giant of Africa
Stood like a barricaded water
North to South
Windows zipped

Harvest of rage
Verbal artillery
Citing on claw papers
Sovereign massacre
Rape of headlines
With thick soot
Flaring smoke

Rather see them smouldering
Than perfect gun battle
Streets wail in opened fangs
Spitting venoms
Paralysing alongside cramps
An African abode
