Today is D-Day

By Azeezah Olatunde
Today, I see uniforms running, for

8’o clock should not be missed.

Book stores became a cube of sugar

That ants come to patronize.

Today, I heard lips murmuring

The National anthem,

Like it was forced out of their lungs.

The ambiance of the assembly was dull.

They will miss the freedom

They have been digesting.

But mama has longed for them 

To be caged in this four walls of knowledge.

Mama made it sail and sink into their minds,

That their freedom is coming

To an end.She lamented that

books should be their best friend.

Now D-Day is today.
