The Sambisa Yard

By John Jimoh

The kite landed the earth

Like a drone so noiseless

With wings spread around

The North East Nigeria

The savannah base heaved

A sigh of relief when the armies

Mounted the corridor of leakages

Devoured of human elements

Sounds buzz as foliage flaps

All merchandise of the creatures


The wild-monsters in matchless

Carnival beating a war song on man

The itinerant nomad grazed-on to the

Bubble spot where no man ever tramped

So rich and flourishing they muttered

We have come home, they whispered

Our swords must leak blood

Spooling shells and grenades

The cannibals stray to hinterlands

Leaving the frails lifeless


The arena is ours as survival squashes

Sambisa yard so promising and assuring

Raising urges for economies, it stays

The civility of social order so we grow

Thrusting upon the wake of certainties

And when we flocked to cheer

Our cog cracks for our embraces

Weird sects spoil our shows of victory

Overrunning our dreams as the shifts

From weird creatures to goons

Not a day without a plea our peace

To sway in a borough called Sambisa
