ECSTASY NIGHT by Oki Kehinde Julius

ECSTACY NIGHT
.
Darkness triumphs over light,
Day subjected to the night.
Sun had earn her glory in the noon.
It’s now the turn of the moon.
.
Warn the spherical sun,
To dance not to galaxy tune.
The ray singing its melody,
Had been muted with chronic malady.
.
Let the whitish sky,
To manipulate into black.
Tell the birds that fly,
That their road had become dark.
.
Allow the twinkle old stars,
To reflect out their glittering light.
They are the glory of the night,
Shinning like diamond up high.
.
Mosquitoes are now hungry,
Houseflies should go to sleep.
Only the night provide them food,
Nutured with the human red fluid.
Many will be send to a night grave,
With a sweet aroma coil of raid.
.
Night gown ready to stare at nakedness,
Of body clothed with daily stress,
Get the pellow pillow teased with hands,
Night grave is already ready for romance.
.
Junction hungry for sacrifice,
Calabash will soon quench the apetite.
Tell ‘Esu’, the master of cross roads,
That its dinning table will soon invite the ghost.
.
Tell the witchcraft that fly,
That midnight is already at hand.
The gods that direct the movie of night,
Will soon come out like worm beneath the land.
.
Hands will soon fight with banging drum,
Legs will soon swipe to singing song.
Amidst the abode of darkness,
Where life is sent to an exile without sword.
.
Poison my blood,
To become taboo to gods.
Dumb me into deaf,
When my name is echoed in spiritual relm.
.
Until the hen cocks,
Till the soul will be raised up.
When the night creatures start to talk,
Life is already dead in strup
.
Oh! Creator of creature,
Beat my cock till it cries
I lay on my mat like green pastures,
Let its early song provoke my corpse to rise.
.
I want to rise with the sun,
And not to crawl with the moon.
Open my eyes when the morning comes,
So that my kneels may crawl in praises with joy.
.
