Looking for a chink in the wall by Gabriel Bamgbose

The red-headed one
With a mighty comb
Nodding in fury
Like a pressed cock
Finding a foolish fowl
To quench the fire of his furious groins

Why looking for a chink in the wall
Why not climb and see
There are cracks in the wall
In which you can lay your red head

About Ijagun Poetry Journal

Ijagun Poetry Journal is a quarterly journal that provides a platform from which we can tell our own stories in the authenticity of their multiplicity through the poetic medium. We don’t want to hear these stories from our master “griots” alone; we want to hear from those mastering their art, too. Hence, we aim at publishing new and emerging poets. We also welcome the works of established poets in order to encourage the poetic genius of those mastering poetic art. We prize original works that conform to, break or reinvent conventions. Again, we accept reviews and critical essays on poetry. We also accept powerful art works and photographs that make us appreciate the "poetry" in everything.
