DUSKS OF DRINKS AND DRUGS
Read the poem provided below and answer the questions that follow: (20mks)
Drinks and drugs drained our dreams,
Drinks and drugs drowned our dreams;
They drew dusks and dark nights,
Drinks and drugs spawned our nightmares;
We wailed and screamed in seas of terror
In sweat-drenched bodies, bobbed we out,
Like drugged fish out of muddy streams;
Gasping for breath-hearts pumping and panting.
Inaudibly mumbled incoherent words
Pulled back stubborn sleep to no avail,
She fled like a refugee fleeing a civil war.
Our bedmates asked: we answered not!
