Spinster Juice

I envision every lady
Ripe for marriage as a juice;
And as it stands, just as juice
You are; “a sweetness of ritzy”.

I know you are white as snow;
An immaculate untouched forest,
But, endeavor to listen and respect
The romance your toasters show.

Not saying, your legs should spread wide
On a clock, of the nine and three
For men to pluck fruits from a tree
But, just be flexible to rules and bend…

Listen to the sweet sound of love
Feel the breeze in your window
Get your heart a loving pillow
And the spitfire, let it dissolve…

Not all wedges are stumbling blocks
Let love lead you to the glitters
Or you be praying on the altars
For love to come out off the lock.

Sonnets: 170219

Like fire, demons and hell
Blazing, I often err
Yes, am not an Angel.

Do not worry my dear
Sometimes I may not jell
Or answer the doorbell
The way love stories tell.

But, sharing love’s sphere
In nuptial hills and dell
I will always be there;

Marry me my lover
In you I see clearer
Your love remain sweeter
Than sweetest of sugars.

For rewards of fruits
I will say the truth;
Nothing but the truth

Hello Nigerians
Send on an errand
Mentally sound minds

Not vegetables
Or broken tables
Who aren’t able

To sow seeds today
Or gather some hay
For the better days.

Our chances to become
All that we clamour
Knocks loud at the door,

Please ! do not answer
Bright future dimmers
We can do better.

Mood so swung

Have you ever had moments
That aren’t about regrets
Nor desiring time rewind
So to undo an ill act…

Have you ever had a rage
Burning within at some stage
When you just couldn’t pinpoint
From where the mood swings and drifts…

And, have you ever been asked
Why you are moody and sad
But you just have no answer
To why joy became lesser.

Am I alone in such world
Where moods flush like floods
Washing the subconsciousness
To the state of happiness.

The Christmas hen

I was just there, doing my thing
They fed me big, until they rein Grasping my legs, I tried my best
Till my feathers fell off my wings.

My chest on floor, they held my neck
The shinning knife, I could not bilk
It all happened, slowly but quick
They slit my throat, without a wink…

I felt my blood; effete and cold
Sublimely, my confidence folded
I was most pained, seeing friends
Especially those I trusted

They were happy, singing verses
Rejoicing to the universe
Now I am a meat in a stew
Guess am just, a hen for the chew.

Submission of aroha

Know your shape, size, kind and taste
Love is a hat, worn by the heart
The unadulterated sensing spirits
In the heart, knows the hat that fits

“Hey, don’t be picky”; people might say…
Hence the wigs tangled together in hay
Only to wake up, making excuses to bills
Slamming the door, heading for hills.

Realizing love is sometimes by preferences
That they wasted time laying in pretenses.
Just like mission, objectives and goals
Every heart has an eternal vacation to go

“For better, for worse”, in body and soul
Of course, love is something to behold
Around ones taste is where aroha will swing
To the head that naturally fits the wig.

Father and daughter dance

Hey! dear daughter
You changed my life
The day you came.
I kissed you first
Even in womb
Sad, you can’t
Remember that.

Butterfly kiss
Had left the mark;
“I love you first”
Before you spoke
I watched you crawl,
Staggering while
You walked and ran.

Oh…! how time flies
Watching you grow
Into today
Along the aisle
For another man
Guess another son;
Daughter’s father..

So beautiful
Every girl wish
For such a bliss
Another man
Come grabbing you;
You have grown up
So fast, my child

Underneath my nose
Let’s dance dear
For, I saw you
Little, my girl
Do not blame me…
You will do, the-
-Same to your kids.

Sonnet: Heart Choices

Shivers; I fold,
Feeling so cold
On bed, I lay
By you all day.
You keep me warm
Under your arm
In raining times
Or harmattan
You steam winter
You chill summer
In all seasons
You give reasons
To love anew
And only you.

Tone: Pledges to love

Reasons I pledge
My breathing ledge
Body and soul
To love you, is
You make me whole.

I had no hopes
I reached for ropes
Ready to swing;
Then you came, and
I changed my mind.

Reasons I pledge
My breathing ledge
Body and soul
Is; without you
I am a pole.

When I had wounds
Your love offered
Me a stretcher;
Treated for free
Until I healed.

Reasons I pledge
My breathing ledge
Body and soul
To love you, is
So predestined.

It seems we’ve
Known since larvae;
Ever since; I
Encountered you
…I feel complete.

Ode of a mortal warrior

My curiosity asks
Questions mortals fear, for
Sorrows to disappear.
Pray for me, I have done
An unspeakable thing
No mortal ever did.

Against my flesh, my bone
Has led me into hell
Challenging immortals
Pray for me, I have done
An unspeakable thing
No mortal ever did.

Stretching arms to both ends
Breaking doors and drawing
Swords with the gods of war.
Pray for me, I have done
An unspeakable thing
No mortal ever did.

Wedging war against all;
The Angels and demons
Are both in alliance.
Pray for me, I have done
An unspeakable thing
No mortal ever did…

Pray for me, to endure
The chokes of my own dust
When the wind of pain blows…
Pray for me, I have done
An unspeakable thing
No mortal ever did.
