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.

Submission of aroha

Know your shape, size, kind and taste
Love is a hat, worn by the heart
The unadulterated sensing spirits
In the heart, knows the hat that fits

“Hey, don’t be picky”; people might say…
Hence the wigs tangled together in hay
Only to wake up, making excuses to bills
Slamming the door, heading for hills.

Realizing love is sometimes by preferences
That they wasted time laying in pretenses.
Just like mission, objectives and goals
Every heart has an eternal vacation to go

“For better, for worse”, in body and soul
Of course, love is something to behold
Around ones taste is where aroha will swing
To the head that naturally fits the wig.

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.

Sonnet: Heart Choices

Shivers; I fold,
Feeling so cold
On bed, I lay
By you all day.
You keep me warm
Under your arm
In raining times
Or harmattan
You steam winter
You chill summer
In all seasons
You give reasons
To love anew
And only you.

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.

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 Terrorist

The blades of leaves dries up and falls
To feed livestock, I gather the hay
Seen animals die, but I never took a life
Just a farmer, who so loves his farm
Blood on my hand, can’t hurt a fly…

Love and peace, I often preach
Till two bulls rammed each other
Splashing streams and unsettling dust
Thunder stroke, even the earth quaked
My home they had picked, as battlefield

I am not a bull, neither a soldier
But here I stand, with a shotgun
Dewy-eyed, oh yes! I am naive
Staring at titans as they set ablaze
My ponds, my ranch, my barns and my silos

Screaming and pleading, but they thrust-
-Spears and arrows, I manage to dodge
Both end sees me as an opponent
The chase continues for me, the ant
Whose guilt is; building a beautiful hill

Sad to see all my effort collapse
In the hands of two unrelated bulls
If one die, maybe the battle would end
Dared and caught up in the middle of it,
I can’t help myself but pull the trigger.

Haiku: You are poetical

Babe, you are special.
In soul and in physical,
You are poetical.
