Army Arrangement

Army Arrangement

 Just when we thought

The carnival was over

We heard stomps throughout

That made warriors quiver

 ***

The khaki boys ploughed and ripped fort

Tearing down all that peace could render

Gigantic loots. None questioned or fought

For if you did, your sojourn would be over

 ***

Atrocities tough as iron wrought

Our plight did less for a mind make over

Instead, incarcerations flowed forth

Including men of brevity and steel liver

 ***

But the struggle was weaved on thought

So on, and on and on victory rolled over

And just when the carnival music stopped

An agbada-wearing khaki boy took over
