"Contemporary Gods" A Poem By Ajinifesin Habeeb

I preferred those Lengthy Love Letters And those meetings at nightfall, Until you invented a device you claimed "better" Assuring to be at my beck

"In Contemporary Gods, with exquisite words tilted with simile, he juxtaposes between the remote days when there was no technology "Like my ancestors carved what they bow to...I screen-guarded and pouched mine from harmwith the present technological advanced moment. He satirically emphasizes on the addiction and total reliance on technological devices,"Empty, inept, so am i without it." especially phones and their effects in the daily lives of  the Z genreation. The poet catches the mind of the readers with what we see but take less cognizance of."






Contemporary Gods


I preferred those Lengthy Love Letters

And those meetings at nightfall,

Until you invented a device you claimed "better"

Assuring to be at my beck and call.

But then,

Like my ancestors carved what they bow to

So I bought what i kowtow

As they sheltered it with charms,

I screen-guarded and pouched mine from harm.

As they seek protection from it before they sleep,

And thanked it, the next day upon opening their lips.

Mine was the last thing i sight before the day's slumber

And fondle it upon waking,as though it had protected it from danger

Like a mother who lost her son

Like a plant who had no access to sun

Empty, inept, so am i without it.

Be it to achieve a tiny task or a fantabulous feat
