Running Feet By Olatubosun David


I see running feet
Disarrayed like troubled ants
Running violently in indefinite path

I see hunters
Pursuing preys dodging at gunshots
Continuously in all directions

Justification: Our cattle are hungry!

I see blood of the running feet
Splatter, splashing, in churches and mosques
In bed rooms and streets
On grasses, rocks, books, everywhere

A troop of insurgents
Has invaded our land
