Threshold of History by Ajise Vincent

I.

On the threshold of history
I will write down poems
About men who stinged decorum
And used this gory ordeal
To promulgate their fame

Men who mastubated on peace
Defiling the sacredness of caliphates
With bombs and bullets of martyrdom

Men who took dames
And shattered their present
Just to satisfy the rising and falling
Of the masquerade betwixt their thigh

Men who claimed to be “gods” at dawn
Only to be sacrificed to posterity at dusk
By mortals with dane guns

II.

On the threshold of history
I will etch down ululations
About belles who hid under the marquee of hijabs
To truncate the future of dreams

Belles who left their footprint
On the sand of wickedness
As dames with stony hearts
Coated with perforated emotions

III.

On the threshold of history
I will erase the lies of death sponsors;

The testament of traitors
Who respired on hate in this cosmos;

I will write down tales of how dirges
Became lullabies to the living
