Word Play Wednesdays: The Hunter – A Poem by Ikiyo Garuba

Welcome to Word Play Wednesday!

Word Play Wednesday is a weekly feature of written and spoken word poetry. I will be sharing my written and spoken word poems in addition to poems by other like minds. If you are interested in sharing some of your poetry, feel free to buzz me and we can work something out. 

I hope that you enjoy reading and listening to our thoughts, feelings and rants and in many ways relate to some of them.



The Hunter


You who comes from the clan of the hunters,

You hunt for the thrill of the game,

You pick the most elusive prey,

You chase with the speed of the cheetah,

With the skill of the African lioness

And strike like the viper


You taste the flesh of a worthy prey with satisfaction

You wear the coat to show you are

Worthy of the clan of hunters

But beware!

The hunter may just become the hunted
