Poetic License: Song for Pheromones, By Kelechi Okoronkwo

 

Pheromones.

Unknown tissues of hate and love 

Unprovoked, we hate and we love

Love or hate a people over the other

By thou unknown and unfair chemistry.

 

Unprovoked. We get provoked

And we love and we like unequal 

We hate and we loath unequal 

But we can’t say any why

We reel helplessly, under this burden

of hate and love but we can’t say any why

 

Pheromones. 

Wired with self-corruption

Always dictating

Never convincing

Always abiding

Never appearing

So we never knew you 

We never provoked you

But you cause us spew hates and love unnecessary 

We do not do you but you do us everyday

 

Myths in goodness and gentility we learned. And like cloths we wear them everyday. But…likeness never attracted 

Unlike poles always attracted

Now I see this old science of magnetism

Now I see why they spew us hate and dislike over our clothing of goodness and gentility. 

 

Now I see…I see why we don’t know why

Nor why we should bother over things unknown and unfair

We hate and love unnecessary

 Pheromones. Art thou fair?

Thou unknown righteous devil in all of us

Song for Pheromones was written in 2017 by Kelechi Okoronkwo, a Nigerian, writer, poet, journalist, public affairs analyst and critic
