    Harmattan (Poem)

    Burrows
    Into marrows of bones.
    Chill cascades
    Into crannies of
    Blanket bound bodies.
    Goose bumps grow,
    Teeth chatter.
    Harmatthan
    With vagaries and vicissitudes
    Violate vegetation.
    Arable lands are made arid,
    Horizon in haze hidden.
    Already harangued by hullabaloo
    And humbugs of vote hunters,
    By leaders lawless,
    We live with chill,
    We live with shoulders hunched.
    We are chilled also
    By violent vagabonds.
    We are chilled now
    By Harmattan.

    By Chidi Anthony Opara

    Why do you continue to torture us with this drivel?

    Where's the penis reference? You always have a thing for schlongs.

    The rule is simple, if you do not like it, ignore it. Since you did not ignore it, it mean that you like it. Your comments also mean that envy prevents you from appreciating it.

    Sorry, pal, but there's no such rule. If we don't like it, we're going to tell you. If you don't like being told, don't post here.

    You have as much right to post crappy writing as anyone else, but don't be surprised if someone tells you it's crappy.

    I don't ignore when I step in dog ****, either. I don't appreciate the odor and my friends don't envy my soiled sole. They just look at it, tell me it's stinking up the joint and make fun of how freaking stupid I am.

    When I was a kid I sorta wondered why I felt something soft and mushy in my shoe all day long, but as I was too busy playing, I never bothered to check it out. When I took off the shoe later in the day I found a squishy, mangled cutworm. Aw, poor thing...I'd killed it dead. :-(

    Now if that had been dog droppings in my shoe, I'd have known about it a lot sooner.

    ........Above all, we are somehow discussing the poem, which is what matters in literature.
