Dark Future

Written by Dantez Mwendwa

One to four five,

What do I call mine?

Why do I cry?

Am turned to fry,

Was laid by mum

After she met dad,

Theirs a short stunt,

Twenty one days not over,

You come and take me,

I desired to be a chick,

But ends in panic,

I am no more,

You swallow me all,

Pride to my mother,

Am turned to the hunter,

The big egg I was,

Converted to food,

If I had a chance,

I would be a hen,

Give you many eggs,

But you saw food,

Now you excrete me,

I end up as faeces,

In a dark, lonely sewage.
