Here We Are Again

Poem By Kenneth Umunna

Here we are again
Blood dripping in sweat’s place
Anguish sounding in joy’s place
Loss counting in gain’s place
Frown standing in smile’s place
Where do we go from here?
For it seems we are here again

War songs in sweet hymn’s place
Burnt man in burnt meat’s place
Maiming in taming’s place
Myrrh in powder’s place
How did we ever get here?
For it all seems we’ve been here before

How far can we ever get from here?
Every step made, a wasted step
With it comes a change of date
The promised date takes a step ahead
Again we ask-how did we get here?
For it seems we’ve been here before

We will no doubt keep up the fight
Till blood clots and begin to heal
Till the ante comes to stay
An ante tranquil and angelic
Old questions will part our lips
New answers our voices will spill

Like a butcher does he slices
But full of mercy he does
Not like the other cutter

The Perfect Judge

Justice he gives without a but
He alters not a single point
In him a lost one may be found
So just in every way at all

Eureka

</>Hiding behind the curtain
The sureness of my find uncertain
Not willing to spread my news
Lest the burst be my fuse

Feast Of Filth

In hate a rejected breed
In love you accept to feed
From maggots your meal become
And for drink the blood of some
