Bad Bedbugs

By Ndaba Sibanda

Big biting bacterium
Singing 'Silent Stings'

Into blameless bodies
Bills and bills every month

Souls stuck in debt
Battling with the bills' bites

Stinging and sucking souls
Every night everyone asleep

Nightmares to the body and mind
Horrendous hell on helpless beds

Sucking peace out of the mind
Stinging pain into the silent bodies

Singing 'Silent Stings'
The sins of cash and cards
