Transformation

He has done it
He is doing it
If we don’t stop him
He will do more of it

He began with fuel increase
Citizens are killed daily like chicken
If we don’t stop him
He will do more of it

When he had no shoe
Our votes gave him shoes
If we don’t stop him
He shall turn our schools to zoos

The nation has seen unrest
Children are kept in the forest
Yes, he claims to be dearest
He reduces the population by killing our brethren

Boko Haram becomes the ruling party
Yet the Zuma-Man cries “transformation!”
Tell him to stop doing it
Lest we all die cheap, explosive death!

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.
