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.

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.

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.

Sense of duty

I wish I could
Fight for the good
Of civil right
Like activist…

Common jury
My injury
Will make all bleed
Till I am freed.

Stretch out your claws
The rule of law
Is sacrosanct
Stone me to death

I will always sing;
…Solidarity
Solidarity
For ever.

But am just a man
Smiling for the fans
Inside deep I cry
But outward I smile

Going against my will
All because of bill
Am compromised
And harmonised

By today’s winners
And tomorrow losers
I wish I could fight
But my hands are tight.

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: Perfidy by the Prez

Light it up on the shrine,
Enough of blood and owls
Set ablaze old oak tress
Let the hawks gather smokes
Of freedom that shall come
Light it up for a change…
We did; as we were told,
Democracy still eats
Fowls from same pot in shrine
We were liberated from.

Now I wonder; what is
Of the positive change…!
We had clamoured for
Was is but a mirage
Many die every day
Under the thick dark smoke
Yet smiling; it is strange
We are where we are now
When we have the strong wings
To fly all heights and lengths.
