“Dear Salary, Why Are You Not Growing?”

“Dear Salary, Why Are You Not Growing?”

Four friends lived in a village
Fuel was born from the ground
Bread was born in the factory
Meat was born in the farm
Salary was born in the house

Four friends lived in a village
Everywhere fuel grew taller
Everyday bread grew taller
Every time meat grew taller
Every year salary was the same

Four friends lived in a village
Fuel was renamed Oil War
Bread was elevated in status
Meat had a visa to go overseas
Salary was sick and in bondage

Four friends lived in a village
Salary’s dwarfness was awkward
The council enjoyed his disability
The people sought for diagnosis
The results were malnourishment

Four friends lived in a village
Father cried, “Let salary grow tall!”
Council hid the perfusion underneath
Throngs marched loudly, “Salary grow!”
Salary grew again in minimum wage.

Hamilton Ayuk, 2015

“Bonyfish beware because the same net that caught the jawless fish, caught the cartilaginous fish” (Hamilton Ayuk). Beware earthly paradise seekers because there is a serpent in every paradise"(Hamilton Ayuk). "If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable." (I Cor 15:19). "It is not how well you know a person; it is how well you treat them that they will live longer and happier with you." Hamilton Ayuk. Idle people write, idler people read, and idlest people read and whine that idle people are taking their time (Hamilton Ayuk).
