Best Poem of Padmore Enyonam Agbemabiese

Before The Drought
before the drought
there was a long season of rain
slashing leaves like doubly drums
like tin and shingles beating
it was like a commotion in the sky

then came a dead silence thundering
making ears bend in awry

every flower-head on the farm
was piddled to dust and with a sigh
sunk . . .

Just Saying, Thanks
thanks for being strength in my weakness
thanks for being hope in my despair
and mores, thanks for being there
when light walks away from the forest

along the long lonely snaking road
are cascading pike-peak thorns
they hurt the foot at where none can care
all you can hear are crickets singing . . .
