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.

Period of my rebirth

If I am to be rebirth
I shall love my destiny
To roam and scout for any
Trace of my present parents

I shall not just travel
To feel the beautiful world
But find an umbilical cord
Deep right inside my cradle.

Before water breaks or flows
I shall love to receive
All their sweet beautiful traits
Genetics and hereditary throws

I hope, they are not stressing
Worrying about my tomorrow
For nine months in a row
While the bumps is growing.

Weirdness of the African gods

References must be cited,
My lecturers emphasized.
Be of good behavior
My parents urged I endeavor

Today’s trends in Nigeria
Breeze sickness like malaria
As these politicians are embezzling
The pretty ladies go prostituting,

Fake pastors be casting out demons
As these men spin wheel of quick monies
The country is no doubt
A shadow of its unborn self…

The fortunes that favors the bold here
Are our indigenous identity we fear
As others make it inferior by faking
To be another thing yet utilizing

Our heritage but as the hidden secret
Beyond these laments, my questions are
Will you rather be a virgin that made hell
Or a professional prostitute that made heaven?

If you were the African gods,
Will you rather people come into your shrine for miracles
Or give out charms to an anointed prophet
Who goes performing your miracle in another gods name?

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.

Passing Out Speech

Advancing higher
Goodbye is a word
To be said by all
Sad as it may sounds;
It may be for good
As one advances
Life is but a stage
And every page
Comes with its own

Pool of friends
Valuable in life
As treasures found.
No one ever wish
To just let go
Of friendship
But every new stage
Has its own device
Coming plain and blank;

Faces may disappear;
But sweet memories
Resides inside…
So worry not,
Of losing such
A jolly good fellow
Because at the end
Sweet memories
Will always remain.

Gracefully

Anything is possible if ants build hills
Please always pray for me
In your religion and in your beliefs
Pray for wealth and long life that give a relief
For death still remains the debt we all owe
Though by faith, but no one knows
The means or route answers comes to hand
All we know are factors that makes the ice melt down.

Pray for Plateau

Pray for Plateau
Pray for the faithfuls departed
In a cold blood.
Rain curses on those evil hands
Of men, cursed is the day they were born…

Pray for Plateau
Pray for those slaughtered
If I was God
Roaringly, I will kill the bastards
On the day before they were born.

Characters in Era

Every thing has a time in space
Today’s muse may fetch embrace
Tomorrow it may be termed disgrace…
Everyday stars are born, lights unchanged
Glittering from above it grace a stage
Cheered till it turn another lukewarm.

Like it’s said; “players may change
But the game remains the same”
The cycle continues all in time.
People may come as different names
But their era is like running a race
Where every pace has a replaceable face.
