Poetry | BATTLE by Adedayo Ademokoya


Let the Lord captain the host
and the chariots be made of fire

They say it’s a battle
and it’s a must win

I understand it going to be turbulent
not the type of battle I can comprehend

Not the battle of spears and swords
nor about confrontation and tactics
nor is it of air strikes and atomic bombs

It is not about physicality
nor is it about intellect

It is a battle
not for the simple

It is a war
against kingdoms and rulers

It is a war
against ‘special combos’ armed forces

It is a battle
that must be won violently

This is a battle
that is not bloody

This is a battle
which the Lord captains

In this battlefield
we are the warriors.
