Bang Bang Bang

Tell God about me –
tell him that I
am ever so lost
but I find hope
in the solace of
poetry and grace

Tell him about Sade,
how she cuts herself
that she has dreams
but she buts herself

Tell him that I don’t
like it here, tell him
about my secret pain
and my hidden shame

Tell him about Jumoke,
how she has grown wings
and breasts too
and fears too

And about daddy-Tope;
he prays for a child
his organ is flaccid
his milk is sterile

And finally about you; Deola –
That you still want to be here
on earth with me,
with us

If bullets could reverse,
but they can’t,
I am coming to meet you
or I might meet Satan
