Poetry from Yusuf BM

Blood Party

YusufBMphoto

Our meals turned macabre
Deserting our lives
Into the atmosphere of fear
Choice shakes
Death or life?

Boom!
Gun sounds sweetened
Our ears like afro-beats
Dancing to death
Like it is makosa
Choice grumbles
Death or life?

Zero child- Cries of mothers
Only wicked toys
Rules the play ground of kids
And solemn lullabies walks around
Their smiling fields
Choice wiggles
Death or Life?

Humans- Preys to terrorists
Like lion and animals
Feeding on its choice
Blood- wine of theirs
A war
But, a blood party
And choice bangs
Death or Life?
