This House is Falling

This House is Falling

written by: Aliyu Yakubu

 

This house is falling
Block after block
Pillar after pillar
Like a hapless hovel
This house swerves from side to side

The occupants are all out
In the street, puzzled: where do we seek shelter?
Our homestead is going
Leaving us at the mercy of beasts
Who now roam about
Unencumbered
