Only in Time. By Uche Duru

Its only in time
Building houses on clouds
Cars run on water
Planes take off without a sound
The sun goes round the moon
Urine's highly inflammable
Rats live for a century
Only in time
An unsolved mystery
A riddle
No man can solve
Deaths and births
Thank Goodness
Its just a dream
The moon smiles sycophantly
Betraying centuries of trust
Wobbling the earth downside up
Mourners smiling
Smiling in agony
After a small medium at large
Seniors have sat
Reciting unsolved riddles
Telling a story with no end
Black toothpaste 
Purple teeth
Spoke menacingly
An indignant smile
Making my eyes turn
Like a man drunk in water
I lit a candle
With light from a bulb
In a room with no doors
No windows
No openings
I stepped out
An happy shock
Standing on the edge of the world
The last man standing
The only one left
The earth's not moving
Stars shine brighter than sun
A cloudless sky
A pink sky
With a dazzling rim of gold
The sky dazzled
Its only flaw, ironically
Is its perfect beauty
It was just a dream!
