perhaps he thinks he will be president in heaven

he bears his power on his head and shoulders with his authority he dictates the being of those beings that are living in his territory and decides where those who have died will lay their empty heads and worn-out bodies he knows his own and assigns them roles in his kingdom and the fate of the others he cares not about even when he journeys he goes with his regalia of reign and commands that he be armoured with the camouflage of power when he shall journey alone after his entourage amidst the blaring of sirens must have escort him to the port where he must fly alone perhaps he thinks will run another term having the Angels as his ministers and entourage perhaps he thinks he will be president in heaven

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.
