Poem: Fallen Heroes

by Daniel Nkado




Once, you were firm and round

Great soldiers of attention

Once, you were full and sound

Marvellous attention grabbers



You needed nothing to stand

Needed nothing to shine

You had it all

Got it all



Today, you have become sagged and weak

You have become lined and longer

Devoid of your elegance

You easily escaped notice



Now what you have become

Fallen heroes

I extol you despite

My fallen heroes



… Grandma Edna

  2. Talking about what we use to nurture men and their offspring. We loose ourselves in the bid of doing that, but then we are nothing without them so in them we find us. Good one Grandma.
