Night by Toheed Sheu

Night:


………..
I have once asked night questions
Easily asked with quotes
Confidently asked with poems
Stylishly asked with gestures.

.
Why are you favoring thieves?
Why are you a friend to evil doers?
Why do you always keep some secrets?
Why are you light to some birds and darkness to others?

.
Can’t forger the night
Curfew kept us inside like a prisoner
Heard sounds without drum
Night, you hide secrets

.
You blind sharp eyes
And re-blind blind eyes
Exposed man with light complexion
Black man can disappear when you appear

.
Night is for rapists
Night is for kidnappers
Night is for robbers
Night is for bad children

.
Night is for worshipers
Night is for prayer
Night is for readers
Night favor children
