Covert Operations at Agbogbloshiestan*

the ballot-man, moulting
into a bullet-man, belts
through cockroached tunnels

(in a bullet-proof Limo)

seeking out those animals
that would eat their intestines
to calm growling bellies

those whose hunger
is only sated when another’s
blood spills on mouldy minds

to these animals are offered
alcohol laced laxatives
and: guns, cutlasses, and a list
