CLAMOUR WE ALL
by Victor O. Sawyerr

Clamour we all
For Power
To act
To Change
To deify
To ‘demonify’
To wield absolutes
Over lesser
Mortals.

Clamour we all
For Power
To stand
As Kings
To soar
Like Eagles
Roar
Like lions
To own
The jungle.

Clamour we all
For Power
To depose
Like gods
Repose
Like angels
Wave wands
Like fairies
And wrest
The universe
Into
Our Private Domain.

Clamour for,
But the ultimate
Aphrodisiac ;
NAY
The final
Psychedelics:

    The Trappings
    Of Addiction, and
    A conundrum
    of altered self perceptions
    Inebriated self consciousness…

…A GALAXY
That revolves
but in the palm
Of our little hands.
[Written by Victor O. Sawyerr. June 1st 2016]
