LET ME PEE


must a death come before a birth?
must a swallow come only after shitting?
must the penis not pee since the heart
is not yet done with it's routine beating?

must cubs await the lion’s death?
must chicks await the  hen’s passing?
must kids count the billy’s breath?
...to roar, cluck or bleat... I'm asking

must wind await his tornado father
must branches await the sturdy trunk
must pebbles await the ancient boulder
...to blow, shake or roll... you drunk?

did Soyinka wait for Achebe passing?
should Clark have aborted his Abiku?
Chimamanda is winning, is Okri dissing?
now, will you leave this son of Ku?
