USA Africa Dialogue Series - Canaries From Arabia(Poem) By Chidi Anthony Opara

(First published in in 2008)

Like a cuckold
Listening in resignation
To moans of pleasure
Of spouse laid
Onto bed of adultery,
We sit near chatterboxes
To listen to tales
Of infirmity
Of onye isi ala,
Custodian of our sovereignty.

Canaries from Arabia
Where medicine men
Mutilate organs of our nationhood
Sing different songs,
Confusion rain in torrents.

The flocks now roam
This expanse without shepherd,
Lions stalk
And sniff aroma of mutton.
And hyenas assemble also
To partake
In the imminent feast.
