A Poem titled ‘Survival’

A Poem titled ‘Survival’


By Abdulkabir Olatunji

It sounded logical
Then it became technical
People wondered if it was legal
Then they became vocal
It became political
Then it became conflictual
Almost comical
People acted farcical
Some became suicidal
Taking some chemical
Government’s reaction was radical
About it there was something mystical
Almost mythical
Then allegorical
It started local
Then became international
Before long it got global
It’s grip almost total
To most fatal
Except for the cabal
Named after the jackal
With an attack that was frontal
In a battle that was incidental
To a result that was final
