Samuel Eyitayo


Fore-Give


First
It was a mistake
Second
It was not planned
Then
It happened again!
From the loud mouth
I-am-sorry
Sorry?
Sorry ko, Sorry ni
You will do it again
No
Not me
I mean
Never again
I-am-sorry
Sorry ko, Sorry ni
P-l-e-a-s-e
Forgive me
Do it before
In the inner chamber
Then,
Give it away
When you need it
Fore-give.

    I like the rhythm of this. A decidedly fun read, though not a decidedly fun experience I'm sure. (saving it to favorites)
    I like the repetition of
    Sorry ko, Sorry ni
    I'm wondering if the person was named Koni?
    is this a play on words, (indicating that Koni is sorry in more ways than one)
    or does ko & ni refer to something else? (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
