3 Poems│Agumanu Kennedy


Souls on Rampage

Commotion cracks human abodes
Over unprecedented toll of deaths
Running and dying our experience
On this untimely ravaging deaths
Nations panic in pains and perils
Allowing humanity dread its existence
Verily, verily, it has come
Indignation of human lives
Reaping lives unreplaced in time
Under the scary pandemic of Covid-19
Seizing all vulnerable to mother earth.

Naked Dance

With the drop of an ink
Joining in a maniac dance
With souls leading a buried life
Dancing in naked wears
With friends and folks in dismay
Celebrating valless val…
Jubilating for a joyous pain
But anticipating valentine
This dance shall they dance
Always in a season of cursed love
A season of valless lovers
In a loveless hate.

The Elitist Struggle

Panic, Panic, Panic …
Running after an all desirable life
Singing a song of success
Lightening the unnatural moon each day.
And the PANIC …
The conscious fear yet unconscious
Running with a hope and desirous desire
Singing a song of success.
With the successful feelings
Of success
A desire hoped for and worked for …
Day and night
Moon and Sun all in Elitism.
Yet Panic, Panic
A feeling of fear and unpreparedness
An observation unforseen of man
Only success Elitism and …
Forseen for fairness only.
