EIGHT-RED (#hatepoem) by Samuel Amazing Ayoade

Eight
Letter eight
The symbol of hate
When two ‘free-ends’ meet
When two ‘free-ends’ meet at a point
Where there are ‘eight-red’ lights
Blinking from seven to noon
Till twillight and dawn
With anger and rivalry
Quarelling, jealousy
Reaching down
The heart
Blood
War.
