By Jakky Bankong-Obi
Like Picasso brushing the canvass
Of this Benue Savannah sky
With a burst of golden hues
Is a kiss to end the day,
An incursion of beauty
Calling a truce on these toils
And pursuit of industry,
A cue to nature’s wild creatures
To lay it all down, rest.
So, the softness beneath our rage
And the whimsy under the hardness
Can grow under the cover of night
And unobtrusive lunar light.
