Snakes Meant to Seduce

By Dwight Isebia

Priest, prophets,
poets and politicians,
use the power of words
to penetrate painfully
into the deepest parts
of pondering people

Oh, fear human language
and the ones enriched
with the ability to use,
convert and or abuse
its children called words,
given birth
as snakes meant to seduce

(DPI 1981)
