Sounds of the Night (A Poem) by Terzungwe Inja

Of bootlaces locking
Masks slipping on and guns cocking

Of big liquors pouring
Music blaring on and tongues wagging

Of generators groaning
Fumes floating up and buildings quaking

Of people kissing
Condoms showing up and beds squeaking

Of Churches preaching
Money pouring down and Pastors cackling

Of pages flipping
Students swotting up and Students partying

Of car doors opening
Girls hopping in and Old men grinning

Of roadside fires crackling
Dirty food cooking up and poor people chewing

Of poor people snoring
Rich people sighing and mad people singing

Of Bus Conductors babbling
Passengers squeezing in and Passengers praying

Sounds, sounds, sounds
Sounds recording for posterity
