Journey safe (en route Jos) – Poem

by suleimanharuna

Journey safe (en route Jos)

Beg your conscience. Come, force it!

Drive with care

Languid leaves gossip

Of your doggone chance,

Wondrous plains – deeply cleft

By bubbling streams

From endless springs

Watch you too

Deafening murmur of silence

Towers of God-knows what

In hazy vistas

Of a far-flung view.

Even the prickling cacti

Beg you so

Would you skid off the back

Of the endless python?

Cheers! And you’ll behold

The golden gates or the fiery

Each hateful

In your belated self-realization

Please, drive with care
