Abnormal man

A man I know

Who heads a crackling

Mud house built

On the cliff

Of an ancient ant hill.


The shrine speaks of

Him so often to Ezemmuo.

And Ezemmuo whispers

Aloud to us: "That man 

Has his head cat and rat!"


His children are sickly

With ricket and their

Teeths starve for meat.

They say each time I

Offer them a plate:

"Keep the plate and have us!"


This man I know

Fights for a portion

Of the kitchen with

Three house wives.


This man is a pot bellied

And fat stuffed in the

Flesh kind of man

Whose stomach is fatigued

With children plates.


He is a man who

Fills even his scrotum

With precious coins

And rumbles in rage:

"We should borrow!"


When the winds give

Birth to hurricane

Which makes love to tornado

This man sleeps on his mat

And let's his mud house

Dance with chaos.
