Tigers Living Free

Corridors of powers…

Pierce on roses
Contractors of tyranny
Kill at free will
The wolves… The sheep

Clawing and tearing
Policies draining terms
Conditioned suffering
Impostors of salvation.

Whips whipping blades
Teeth dripping bloods
Hampered freedom
Fear there… It’s here.
Breeze of doom.

Corridors of powers…
Tigers living free…

Our jungle is not safe…
A saviour… The cage.

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.
