Poetry

Pavement Pounding Philosophy | by Ayo Sogunro

Past the parade
Of professional papers
Printed and proper
Precursors and pointers
To the paralysis of a predictable people

Past the parade
Of persuasive participants
With protests and placards
Protected by particulars privy policemen

Past the parade
Of pink phizzed prostitutes
Presenting personnel files
Of perverse political parties

Past the parade
Of profiteering panjandrums
And pectoral punks
Pursuing the prey
Of pirating politicians

Past the parade
Of pick-pocketing peacemakers
And pregnant proselytes
With pretentious postures
Preaching presidential prerogatives

Past the parade
Of pavement pounding philosophers
—including me—
Politely declining
Personal participation
