POEM - RENDEZVOUS POEM - RENDEZVOUS Document Transcript

  • POETRY – A Rendezvous Over Kpekedu By Bai T. Moore 1. Beneath a sea of amber clouds 2. That Saturday around half-past five 3. Was just the kind of setting 4. ‘Gainst which we left the Foya Field 5. To keep our rendezvous with death 6. Above the hills of Kpekedu. 7. There was nothing unusual 8. When Woods, McLaren, me and Gargeor 9. Taxied down the field 10. For a hop we thought—to Voinjama 11. Just fifteedn minutes flight. 12. when we were-half an-hour gone 13. And no Voinjama in sight 14. Emotions rose and fell, 15. Any layman could conjecture 16. We were destined for a rendezvous 17. With death over Kpekedu hills. 18. What followed threreafter 19. When the pilot said, “We’re lost 20. And the compass does not work,” 21. Was an underscribable drama 22. With our rendezvous with death 23. The night came like a monster, 24. A fierce and gruesome creature 25. And engulfed the helpless Piper Cub 26. With four men trapped aboard, 27. Devoid of any likely chance 28. Save just sufficient gas, 29. To get closer to God. 30. Aimlessly we circled 31. On that moonless Saturday night 32. Like a mango fly without a head 33. To keep our rendezvous with death. 34. Down below in scattered hamlets 35. Tiny lights like fire bugs 36. Flickered to and fro, 37. And curious villagers watched in awe 38. Four souls in agony lost 39. Without a guiding compass 40. Except the hands of God. 41. As hell would soon break loose 42. And the end just seconds ahead 43. We all in unison cried, “O Lord! 44. Our sould are in thy hands.” 45. We heard a hissing sould – pop-pop-pop-! 46. An agonizing signal, 47. That the end had finally come. 48. The gas gavbe out near Ngokuma
  • 49. And BANG! Crashed our plane below 50. In the middle of a trackless jungle, 51. We’d kept our rendezvous with death 52. Above the hills of Kpekedu. 53. Throughout that uninviting night 54. Our dazed and broken bodies bled 55. And moaned for any kind of help 56. Admist the ghostly wreck. 57. While Kissi tribesmen cut through jungles 58. In an effort to render aid 59. Death had snatched his victim.POETRY – A Rendezvous Over Kpekedu By Bai T. Moore 1. Beneath a sea of amber clouds 2. That Saturday around half-past five 3.
