Abuchi Onyema: “The Monster You Made”

#EndSARS

The Monster You Made

While I sat on my past deflection
Reflecting whilst a collateral damage
A future bamboozled by authority
Junk of institutions blazing our safety
Animal kingdom of politicos conjugation
Who wet our smiles with sadness
Clinching on our rights and freedom

*

Bend in my precarious abode
Where I gain or lose nothing
Sipping the fermented sap
From a tree of unfruitful kind
Groaning and gasping for help
But death looked away.

*

Hanged on the cross of crucifixion
Where you got me chiseled out
Crafting a monster you never need
Training me to resist fear and turbulent
I feed from the carcass of those you ripped
Thy bloods I drank in anger and vexation

*

Terror, that’s the A.K.A I chose to be addressed
I’m out to unleash unrest
The insanity of a beast with tornadoes of abyss
Feeding the hunger in me with a burning fire
Resisting your offers with chopped off heads
Like a vampire yearning for fresh bloods
Then, and only then you will know
I’m the monster you made!
