THE B O N D by Adeojo Kolawole Adeyemi Hannibal

bondFROM THE HORN OF AFRICA
WHERE HILLS RISE LIKE OCEAN TIDES
TO THE SHORES OF SIR ALVARES
WHERE PLAINS SPREAD LIKE RAINY CLOUDS
YOU EMBRACE YET A NEW ADVENTURE
DEEP INTO THE AMAZON
FRIENDS ARE RAIMENTS
THICK LIKE THE TAPPER’S CORD

BUT STRONGER IS THE BOND
THAT BINDS BROTHERS
WHO THROUGH LIFE’S PRECARIOUS STRETCH
STRIKE A SINGLE CHORD
YOURS WAS IN HARMONY
YOURS WAS ECCENTRIC
IT WAS A SYMPHONY
THAT LIT DOLDRUM
IT WAS ELECTRIC!cropped-IMG0015A-003-1.jpg
THIS CACOPHONY CANNOT SWALLOW THE DISTANCE
NEITHER WILL SILENCE
THE CHASM CREATED BY YOUR LEAVE
NO HEART WILL PERCEIVE
NEITHER ANY EYES SEE
THE UNSPOKEN WORDS BETWEEN ILK
AT THE ALCOVE OF DEPARTURE
YOU HANDED ME FOUR KERNELS
LEST I BECOME WEARY IN STATURE
TO REMIND ME OF YOUR PRESENCE
ONE TO THE OATH THAT MUST NOT BE BROKEN
ONE TO STEPS THAT CANNOT BE RETRACED
ONE TO THE PATH THAT MUST NOT BE TRODDEN
ONE TO THE ONE THAT CANNOT BE REPLACED
AND THIS,TO A BROTHER THAT CAN NEVER BE FORGOTTEN
