Two Poems |Tolu’ A. Akinyemi

F*ck – F*cking 2020

How do we scrub 2020 from our history books?

How do we fuck it off

as a one-off?

The labels have left us weary,

pandemic torn and broken.

How do we deep-cleanse our minds 

from the horrors of 2020?

The agony has left our mental health

shattered like splintered glass.

Do we lockdown the mind

or isolate it from further peril?

F*ck 2020

Rollback the years, fuck 

twenty-twenty. Wipe out the

            scars that blurred that year.
