Victorious Defeat

I will love you tomorrow
If you ditch the helmets
and choose the crowns
And let your women bask in waves
Your children drink
the white exploits of dairy
And your offsprings know a legacy
I will love you
If you let the skies weep
only when it rains
And let the sun compete no more for glows
I will love you
If you let the temple molls sleep
If you plant only seeds
and not mines in the swards
And the things in orbits
are the ones that are meant to be
I will love you tomorrow
if the atmosphere is slack enough
for you lads to roam unhinged
And your garrisons go home
If you let us live today
I will love you tomorrow

  1. My dear Gbolabo,

    I do not know how difficult your circumstances may become during this health crisis. Do not, however, stay silent. Poets are greatly needed in times like these. They give others a voice for the fear and loss they cannot express themselves. And they offer hope.

    May God watch over you.

    Love,

    A. ❤
