a poem by Olomolehin John, Nigeria

This accident-inflicted pain
camped at the base of my spine
defiling trusted herbs and balm

A huge discomfort
flaunting its stretch and tough reign
over my waistline
at every bend, jump and flex

This terror tethers me to annoying limits
jests at my stunted displays
and dares the vigours of my active days

Seated proudly at the mid-body
undaunted by my endless search for cure
I roamed
choicelessly settled for a thorough scan
to veil the hide-out

So my body
in action with the potencies of the prescribed therapies
would topple the militancy
