The Chemistry of a Boy Losing Electrons to Termites

By Ridwanullah Solahudeen

The Chemistry of a Boy Losing Electrons to Termites

In the Chemistry class
Back then at his college
They learnt that
Water plus salt is salt-solution
For Chemistry, yes means yes;
No means no
Hence, wind plus water is wind-solution
Albeit, this boy doesn't care whether the metaphor
Soaked and flooded your eyebrows in its own salt-water
Or all that you see is hatred enveloped in this wish
"Rain can blow, but no wind in this bush"
Whether chirped as woods
Whether logs as him
Cracked by termites in the bases
Like a wooden frame
No man wants to fall like a timber
Or die in the cold but slow bite of their cryptotermes
