"Chamber Of Charades" (Poem)

By Chidi Anthony Opara

They arrive chamber of charades
On peacock plumage.
Backslapping rise to rooftop.
The gallery protrudes
With genuflecting goons.
The mace marches in
With merchants of charades
Mimicking messiahs
And merchandising charades.
Hush strikes,
Silence serenades,
Charades cascade
Chamber of charades,
Minions march to mace.
With mirth
They murmur mumbo jumbo.
They bow
And leave,
Laden with mandates.
