31 Days of Poetry - Day 19 - WHEN THE DUST SETTLES - by Gbenga Sile

(... HIS POEM ...)


When the dust settles
A sense of calm pervades the scene
Reality stares at its creation
As the facade hides away in shame

There's nothing hidden under the sun
Secrets may tarry for generations
Someday however, Someday somehow
The blind eyes would see what they never saw

The wind has blown                                                         
The fowl's anus is exposed
The feathers could only cover it for so long

Shame has finally found its day of fame
