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.

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.

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.

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.

Tone: Hidden in clothes

Wrapped up in clothes
Hiding all but I know
How steaming hot you are.

Each time I see a flame
I always visualize you;
Volcano heat you emit…

Even as you hide in clothes
Your charisma make it show
There ain’t no one hotter

Dear, you are the picture
Definition of fire
All that I ever desired.

The symptom

Two legs in one
Trouser and pants
She thrust words as
Arrows and spears…

Some times tears melt
Mountains of ice
Some times the tears
Refuse to pour

Instead it falls
Like collapsed walls
Picking the tooth
Meal or no meal…

Digging deep holes
The blood gush out
In response to
A broken heart

Dumbs, can not speak
Some times they rap
When pain hits peak
In sorrow wraps…

At times we men,
Turn good women
Into awful
Terrible nags.

The neighbor hears
Parrots and dogs
Next time when we
Say she has changed

Firstly; let us,
Correct our wrongs
We are diseases
Her nag; symptoms.

Nigeria: Today’s tomorrow tales

Today’s tomorrow tales
Should be remembered
For the darkest hour
Today’s shadow draws…

Please do not forget to
Mention all the blood
Spilled by innocent ones
In all zones of the green…

Do not forget to tell
Of the pigs and their lines
And how they looted us
Building their big castles.

Do not forget to tell
Of all the foolishness
We adopted down the line
Applauding evil doers..

Do not forget to tell
There was a country
In unity but separated
All in politics name.

Please do not forget
To tell stories as it were
So tomorrow will learn
From the errs of today.

Logical Question

Who made evil
Who made the ghost
Of what purpose
Do we all breath
When at the end
We all shall ghost..

Out of His image
We were created.
But some are sweeter
Others are hotter
Individuals
Varies in likes.

He created the earth
And other bodies
Around the sun
In the middle
Of thick darkness
An endless space…

Please do not point
Or refer me to
The book of John
Or Genesis
I wanna know
Who created God?

Nigeria: Twenty-third Century Blackman

His culture he held high
Until globalisation
Which is the narrow line
Between sanity and
Insanity widened.

There goes the Century man
Clean in words, stained in conscience,
Conducting church crusades
With thick red blood and guts
Disgorging from his hands.
