Corona: Sonnet for help

It seems that soon there will be no use of laws
For the streets are gradually growing claws

Not just the walking dead but human flaws
So we stay lockdown waiting for the rain to pour.

Many homes have leaking roofs and broken doors
Well, let’s not go to the sad welfare of the poor…

We will never forget in a hurry, a red world
And the year the air we breath become a rod

Striking not only those who went on tour
But unleashing the wrath of hell on every and all

Legends might call it, ‘humanity downfall”
Millions of people die in this invisible brutal war

And every day, we stare at the Heavens asking God
To forgive us; and to just, heal the world.

Corona: Amen

I got a red bone and a boiling blood
Not for China alone but wicked folks
Who sailed into the great shores of our lands
Knowing they are from endemic areas
They still chose to hide all their histories.

This is no regular poem but a curse
On my kneels, I pray unending evils
Should betide creators of this disease
Eating all it come across that breathes
Lord please grant my innermost request.

This is no regular poem but a curse
On my kneels, I pray unending evils
Should betide these blood sucking murderers
And all those who flew into Nigeria
And into other parts of this great world

Knowing they are sick and infected with,
Covid19 and no reasonable doubts
Yet they chose to share the hays and ashes
Of the world wild fire to innocent men…
Oh Lord please hear my prayers, amen!

Corona: Blame China

Wuhan city makes me wonder
Why the Chinese licked fifth finger
And made the whole world to wash hands
Paying for meals they never had.

This is no racism but the fact
So who will help to bail the cat
Before it gets a little late
Blaming China for this plaque.

Not until my street was empty
I never saw bigger pictures
Of empty lungs and the vultures
Should humanity lose this war.

This war is biochemical
Not for guns or mechanicals
But obeying protocols, while
Blaming China for this plague.

Thousands go under the weather
The sleepless cities now slumbers
But once it hits the rural
Great Nigeria will be no more

On this earth we are all tenants
But why is man so much cruel
Destroying the home that they rent
I blame China for this plague

They know the devil they let loose
From Pandoras and test tubes
So stay lockdown in your abodes
Waiting for a miracle…

Every morning through the window
I stare at these empty streets
And fall back to my we pillows
Blaming China for this plague.

Corona is karma

I have a dream, and in that dream,
Apocalypse made reverse flip
She flooded streets, with a reset,
Giving them back all in their bank

Accordingly, appropriately
Cutting sockets, kicking buckets
Lots of bodies, foes and Buddies,
Were stacked like logs, and scared of bugs…

“Dirt kills not an Africa man”
Oh sorry, not those type of men
Who corruption has eaten deep
Beyond depths meant for sinking ship

Now, the center hold not anymore
Beans are empty in cooking pot
And our Hopes are dead in weevils
I heard someone casting Devils

All blames they pushed but he stayed put
In hell, watching landing birds pooh
He had no hand, sins of our land
Exhumed from sands from end to end

Wedges were down and mere touchdown
For personal gain, and golden crowns
Then borders crossed, the virus tossed
Dirt we overpowered, now kills us

We fight world war three, without arms
Which all began from the pigs farm
And self enrich but now they itch
Even as they could turn to fish

With ten fins and bladders to swim
The tears that rain pours out cruel pain
Coming from drugs and outside laws;
Stay far apart; stay sanitized

More than a gun headshot begun
Aiming at rich lessons it teach…
I have a dream, and in that dream,
Apocalypse, had many flips.
