My Father Lied by Akwu Sunday Victor

My Father Lied


Akwu Sunday Victor 

Where is the wind that blows
In your poetry

The gong that made trees
To dance in the wind

The flutes that called dusk to being

And the ceaseless songs of the wagtails
Calling dawn
With sweet throated lyrics


Where are the rhythms of the mortar
At twilight
As women girded with loincloths pounded
The evening meal

Where are the twilights when ‘hands crisscross’
Over a ‘commonwealth’
As children sit under the moon
For a long night ward story
By grey tongues

Father, only the guttural blaring
Of metallic monsters wake me up from slumber
The churning and turning in the entrails
Of metallic goblins stole sanity from my spine
Did those days painted in your poems ever exist
Only the stifled air and the fleeing after wild wind
Of men and women
The mad and insane rush after the wind
Is this the heritage of my age.
