BENIN By Eddie Awusi
A bronze of ancient dawn,
Bustling and buzzing with life,
Like a swarm of bees;
In Ozolua moat.
With spiralling sinews of smokes:
Crawling sheepishly. ascending;
From Iduh Owina to the hearths of Ekhiadolor;
Into the naked ivory of the sky.
And zealous feets;
Negotiating steps, at the fringes;
And coughing locomotives;
Bursting like raucous
Mushrooms on fertile soil - on the roads.
