Wars of years ago,
Battles of ancient times,
Dominance and rivalry,
Ills of the society,
The extinction of a colony was the target,
The erasure of a settlement was the aim,
Every day casualties were on the increase,
Some fled to the unknown,
Gone at twilight,
A story of victory and loss,
A story of annihilation.
Thompson. Emate is a poet of many colours. He lives in Lagos, Nigeria.
