The Call - Poem by TANIMONURE ADEWALE
What shall we see?
What shall we say?
Tomorrow's you and me
Of what words now, today?
And the clock will chime
To evey tongue and clime
Curtains dropped and drawn
Events start in summon
Of all that's faithfully kept
In many years of waiting slept
What awakening of jolting see
In what kind of reality?
On what side of the divide
Of a great gulf deep and wide?
Questions, in your face and brain
Earth, your answer, think again.
For the fires of today burns a clarion call
Of your stand and tilt, your none or all
The flames flickers the two great themes
In silent coming of the two great dreams
Whose reality smiles and frown in one face
Whose finality speaks the eternity of your race
Can you please go deep within
Reflect on today's hear and seen
And what certain mirror of tomorrow
It reveals in either joy or sorrow
Do you and I totally agree
In what we must say and see
Begins with what we do right now
Its place in which dream, of the how
