Co- colonization

In the 60s they left We claimed victory and massacred ourselves We have massacred those we stood for We have debts and are decadent Making decisions and misplacing priorities Should we have sent them away? Did we claim victory or invited new masters? We say we want to make it better Death toils the street and fear garnishes the table […]

One world

Its funny but its true; we loose the most important things and people while we’re busy doing something else. I know as humans, we fail to realise that the heart cannot be seen and we don’t even understand one another every time, so we treat each other in an unfair manner never knowing how the other party feels- little wonder there is […]

Seconds

  The drum beats dun dun Clothed with attires Laughter everywhere The oke is tied My name is given   I was born neither of Gold nor bronze So to say, i stand in the midi Aries I was helped in talking and walking Today i can’t do such in the midst of dignitaries Cos i let some seconds pass me by   I had something rapt within While i was untaught in the midi Aries After the melody came the trials On looking, on reading There the seconds went on         Alteration was late Reffering to the beliefs so they call them Bronze babies they call them Having no link to royalty Knowing no befitting burial With the dignitaries i was And, i was full in irony That was my quality The seconds ran by   How wish the day came back One who was less a dignitary shinned Am enlightened to the day As how wish; the seconds came back.

STARES

In the pour of the first light  Stood an eligible fellow; In every case one thing is amiss Its cold my siblings said We both shook our faces His parts had being cut He had been neglected In this pour, he wanted aid What pity! Same as others.   Don’t wait till you are on Forbes list to help someone; everyone is […]

Nigeria

A body united, a kidney decadent The head which carries the brain has failed at every leap year; Gathered together at a white green tunnel Pictured like a mosque are the hands- Rubbing themselves at each other, The nose is very much alert Telling the mouth to be silent.   Wrote this years ago, its sad it still reflects Nigeria
