Wrong

No matter how
You paint
A wrongdoing,
In the right time,
It will always
Come out bad.

So push me away
From your cold arm
Away from your sight
If you can lie
On a lie
Over and over again.

Good poor, Bad rich

Wired as a calm gentleman
Kind in spirit, deep from soul
Right from the break of dawn
And till the sun decides to rest.

From the right, the moon waxes
I never change arm when it wans
Honesty being my watchword
From young as I grow old.

But there is this unease
Of bridging wires in my head
Sparking fires that questions my
“Wait-for-your-turn” pertain of growth…

Looking at how the current flows
Bringing sufferings and great odds
To the life of a gentle breath
On earth, good seems far from wealth.

Overhauling Cable

The wire ran around the fence
With an overhauling thoughts
To renovate the driven snow
Replacing it with things impure.

Vibrating; church rats are no more poor
Referring to life of being decent
Until judgment, no one is sure
Why not live life freely on earth.

A million me

She demands I pick side
With and by her all the time
Like the American Revolution
And the British Tory

If science has an intent
To deceive but tell truth
Behold I shall take off
Into the laboratory

Not to wear white coat
Or sophisticated tools
Neither to solve crimes
Nor stalk certificates to shelf..

Surrounded by glasswares
Throw stones but tag me no nerd
I wish to extract my genes
And to clone myself.

A million copies of me,
Perfect for her fantasies
Each to take charge
Of being there for her…

In each seconds of time
I shall no longer miss out
The moments in time
No more ‘I forgot…. argh!!”

I will be lying with her
While another me prepares
Her favorite meal
With no hesitation…

No more running late
I shall be her other shadow
While the other me cuddle
Her lofty skin with emotion

A million me shall solve
Challenges of distance
Imagine this like a fodder
Stalk with plenty of hay…

A million clones of me
Shall love her a million ways
Permanently relieving her and I
From tantrums of the day.

Lament of the land

All life long, I search for the principles
Behind massacring and taking life
I search none stop for the rationale
Behind the devastating laws
Economist call; “the laws of demand”.

Those in command demands accolade
Folks skin dry elephants at one end
While fighting for conservation
And bio-diversity preservation
Exclusively and intensively at the other end.

Some store milks for their ancestral lineage
Reaping off funds from a fellow brother
And sharing pints back as community service;
Whereas the purpose of life ought to be prime
Not creating wealth by multiplying poverty, evil and crime..

Laws of land replaced by the laws of demand
Brothers controlling water are hiking price
Sisters in charge of fire does the same
The government tarrif for air is huge
Everyone in charge of sand, double price…

Slavery may be old but never dead
The world was created to roam in freedom
But even in this time, people leave in chains
It may not be the metals you expect
But an unbearable and frustrating life you see..

The economy in Nigeria is worsening
But the fact is, it isn’t Nigeria but Nigerians;
…For the problem of a country is created
Not by a country but its citizens,
Screaming make the world a better place.

Breads on tow

Oh… can you see
How the hill of bread
Has fallen… ?

Spontaneous in bits
Resolute is not
A function of strength

Draw zigzag lines
Take babies steps
Break complex down

Logics plays roles
If you see that
The ants do tow.

Trivial goals

Regardless of how
Little or trivial
A goal may seem,
Challenges are quizzing
To make you great.

Avoiding depression

Self development is
A prerequisite
For career excellence

Self discovery gives
A boost in confidence
To actualizing achievements

Self satisfaction is
A blend of self discovery
And self development;

So know what you need
And go after it to avoid
Present or future depression.

Eclipse of Shelter

I am a moon, never homeless
Or battered helplessly
Around the orbits of the sun.

When the earth, comes in between
Spreading darkness and all its twine
All I need when in ecliptic times

Is just a touch of travelling waves
Transcending from the yellow sun
In whose shadow, I find refuge

Knowing fully well, my shelter
Is the Sun, I stay resolute
Until darkness shall disappears.

Love Terrace

The thunder struck silently
Like Rain, love poured crazily
Erosion came sweeping drips
But we kept smiling like a sun.

Trekking down town with one plan
Singing sweet blues toppingly
Gathering bricks, building house
Hoping when competed we shall rest..

Perusing at the moon leisurely
Laughing like hyenas and jackass
Sharing dreams before we sleep
While hiding from the cold wind.

Inside our beautiful terrace
Is the most lustrous of desires
A gigantic heart burning fire
With electric veins just like wire…

Every part of our house
Has a golden room to admire
Most especially;
A special love that we designed.
