Sonnet: Critical case of Politics

The dust of harmattan began spinning
While leaves from “Iroko trees” were rotating

An overdue pregnant woman knelt down singing
“God make her pregnant” people were praying;

Yet the little foetus in her kept kicking
And the pains beside were excruciating

Some saw she was pregnant but kept on doubting
The credibility of what she was bearing

Young blood needed, tired of redefining
Leadership that has no true meaning

Everyone around her were but perusing
With the mind of the very same old thing

Casting out votes reciting and rejecting
The young she birthed and unborn from ruling.
