Difference (a poem) by Su’eddie Vershima Agema

there are drops in the sun
rays in the land
cold in the air

the goats pen in rivers
fishes in our streets
crocodiles in our rooms

we seek the twin pots of the rainbow
to claim her riches
to grab our land

there she is, wondrous beauty
queen of colours shining to that promised duty
but they cover a rag to hide her lines

from the despairing waters
they pick up sacks of trinkets
empty them and throw us the sound

the pictures draw our groans
as nature swallows after they chew our fortunes
reality increasing their bloat
