Aftertaste Of Power (A Poem Written By Aare Tunde Dawood-Akerele)

Aare Tunde Dawood-Akerele

Power tastes like food
Intoxicates like spirit
Transient on the tongue
To good and bad incumbents
It’s just awhile on the throne .
Aftertaste may be sweet
If not, it’ll definitely be bitter
To many past kings
It’s bittersweet
It all depends
Now I ring the bell
That to every eater
That’s those in power
Aftertaste is sure
The end is real
As eggs is eggs
Ultimately, assuredly
Ex will be the word.
