By Chidi Anthony Opara
I enjoyed the allure of Orlu.
The trees retreated,
The landscape receded
As the roadcraft sped toward Uruala.
In the reverie,
The ressurection of Biafra with my ancestors.
With the godess of Njaba river,
Ogling her bosom
And the bush of her pubic.
The gutural voices
Of Akokwa masqurades
Roused me from the reverie.
I will be in the embrace of Ugah.
As I bid bye
To the natives at orie-Ugah,
The gods of Ekwuluobia
Awaited me with arms
Travelled ahead to Awka,
With the blacksmiths of Awka.
