Tinkling, tinkling, dawn. My soul searches for rest. Mars of wetness envelope my eyes Fleeing rumors tinkle my ears, My heart is struck with snow ice

"Broken" A Poem By Francis Madagwa — Pawners Paper




BROKEN


Tinkling, tinkling, dawn.
My soul searches for rest.
Mars of wetness envelope my eyes

Fleeing rumors tinkle my ears,
My heart is struck with snow ice, dripping
Sorrow in my being.
Oh! My motherland!!!.

Green pasteurized lawn, dye with blood.
Men die tasty, in the midst of dew.
Starving, our farmland harvest rot away.
The appearance of the grazer and the namanama  handicap the able men.

My motherland is fertile like a virgin damsel.
avoided by eligible suitors
Cause she is struck by strange leprosy,

Our armed men are fearsome like Goliath.
Yet flee like chicken before hyena.
Flowering damsels are widowed before their prime age.

Howling sounds pierce every breaking dawn
Shattering the once quietness of my country.

Should the virtuous men and women keep mute in the face of this looming, grooming darkness...
The ill - wind will blow no good.
Should we leave our fate in the hands of the usurper?.. 
Save our lives, save our children and women.
Oh captain of our motherland.
The vultures are here, waiting for the vulnerable.


Poet: Francis Madagwa
