PRIESTS OF THE gODS

Dancing in possessionisms
‘Akom’ climbs the seat of Christiandom
Veiled by the all Powerful Holy Bible
Hiding the powders and poduas
And straw skirts
In suits, and clothes sewn by modernity
What is the name of potent but failed gods hiding in alien myths?

II
When did Atwea house abosom kokroko
To get legs to impress
Through miracles of failed gods?
Again I ask
What is the name of potent but failed gods hiding in alien myths?

III
Heads with sleeping minds
Stop dozing in the land of reasoning
And wasting the pains of your hardwork
In absurd promises,
Horridly readable revelations
And un-undersatandable prophesies
Where are your eyes
That your bodies suffer the whips of deceit?
Where are your ears
That your legs travel into dens of robotics?
Again and again I ask
What is the name of potent but failed gods hiding in alien myths?

IV
When did the calabash of palm wine
Turn into the Lord’s Supper?
When did the podua
Turn into oils on bare hands?
When did the chains for the mad
Develop legs to walk into churches
To lock sanes with higher ambitions?
Again and again and again I ask
What is the name of potent but failed gods hiding in alien myths?

V
I await the words from the ultimate mouth
As people in famine await the mating of seeds and soil
To come with machetes
To separate weeds from plants
I await thunders of the higher being
Like the thirsty awaits rain in drought-land
To shoot like fire warriors into the dry hay of deceit
I await the handcuffs of the most powerful
As maidens await their lords
To come and arrest the possessed erect in biblical handkerchiefs
Until then
I say
‘Obinim nea obi ahyehye’
But God knows all the corridors of right and wrong
Until then
Annuit Coeptis
