Life, Little Things and LaughterPoem

la pluie tôt le matin á Abuja.

And down they came
Nuggets of bliss
Delivered from pregnant clouds
Dumped on a clammy land

Angels dancing the twist
Suddenly stop to tap their feet
Causing a storm and a stir
With no harm intended
Yet we scampered
Under our beds
And groaned in appeasement

Dogs barked
As fires flared
Across corridors
of soaked skies
Chasing the plague
Off the land
Under a corona of fear

But plants swayed
with palm fronds in their hands
Singing the hallelujah song
Before the sovereign
Who provides
For men of evil
And good intents
la pluie tôt le matin á Abuja
(In the early morning rain in Abuja).
