Poem: Fallen Heroes

20

by Daniel Nkado


Once,
you were firm and round

Great
soldiers of attention

Once,
you were full and sound

Marvellous
attention grabbers

You
needed nothing to stand

Needed
nothing to shine

You
had it all

Got
it all

Today,
you have become sagged and weak

You
have become lined and longer

Devoid
of your elegance

You
easily escaped notice

Now
what you have become

Fallen
heroes

I
extol you despite

My
fallen heroes
