BYE LAWS – By Akeem Abolaji


I stopped myself from looking
too deep at the fantasy of love-plays
and stroked to the whim of law-firms
this non-stop outbreak of law despoils

a senate chaos in the state house
how can storing our sweat
become a crime? another sovereignty
becomes a target for jail-

civilians have been caged and
many of us are better than the ministers
ten more boys bashed;
expulsed from the university

we shall obey the law of discipline
do they question themselves
for wooing our girlfriends

oakwood and crimson flame
for their shits- my perturbing
heart shall sleep lawless tonight
