Woman and Sword

An olive branch she thrusts
through my heart pierced
but a new mistress I’ve found
in the sword of destiny
though the grave yawns
now or never all vanity

Global Food Basket

A mango African open orchard I ate
a wayside the seed carelessly tossed
passing by again I saw a bud in eke
with no tendering as a star crossed
but the rains and the sun nurtured
its nutrients from the mother earth
where on earth can this be captured?
Africa, with its caring warm hearth

where nature’s effervescence is apt
its plentitude is also fruitless implicit
this land of plenty is barren till adapt
to the paradox of wisdom so explicit
but when greed suffocates the greenest
all roads leads to this land of poverty
where greed stunted growth in honest
will be the same to replenish property

Africa will assuage this global hunger
in granaries to feed the world in blunder.

The Red Drum

The red drum beats
when every other drum stops beating
every soul dance to the rhythm of life
from the pulsating ethos of the red drum

the red drum not only beats
when you listen, the red drum is talking
every stony heart has a sheath for a knife
from a gush on the tempo of the red drum

the red drum by nature is sexy
when your heart flutter and in frenzy
every stolen glance from your heartthrob
from the blushes irrigated by the red drum

the red drum is jealous and vindictive
when retrospect’s stab is aggressive
every soft spot, love and pardon flee
from dirges the red drum goes on spree

Songs of Africa

on the rolling mountains
in the sprawling valleys
joyful songs in fountains
flowing down the gulleys

on the high seas and lands
hear the air is full of mirth
as birds wave their hands
adore the land of our birth

the children of Africa sing
with one new joyful voice
good tidings change bring
pageantry your new choice

make joyful sounds Africa
from the lark voices borrow
sad songs are over in Africa
sing no more songs of sorrow

The Poisoned Succour

God created natural wells for all Africans
their insatiate thirst and hunger to assuage
but African leaders created poison to contaminate
the very wells that is meant to be their lifelines

man created politics that is very dirty in Africa
and poisoned the rich wells that is their succour
and the wells become the bane of the albatross
Oh! African, why kill your adornment on molehills
how long continue to suffer in the midst of plenty?

the offspring of the poison succour are huge
poverty, corruption, conflict, misappropriation
the offshoots of the offspring are many
Angola, Gabon, Nigeria, and Guinea and….

the new entrant is the coast that was full of gold
and now thinks can become the new African tiger
but remember, a tiger must not shout its tigertude
and pop not yet champagne bottles in your Osu castle

The Black Stars of Africa

The Black Stars of Africa

In the midst of so much despair
where all hope seem to be lost
the human spirit do seek repair
from an inner recess, at all cost

in all African villages crowds grow
a lone Black Star hope awakening
as the crowd enjoyed the soft glow
of the screen on that cool evening

the Vuvuzela sounds like a bee hive
the Hope of Africa is being revived
in the Black Stars of Ghana to strive
but it is the Hope of Africa survived

Nkrumah’s Independence of Ghana
meaningless unless yoked with Africa
so the Hope of Africa muster to garner

God is God

God is God
He was made by man
but refuses to be human

God is invisible
He was hidden by man
but is seen everywhere

God is unfathomable
He was made mysterious
but is known to everyone

God is love
He was made a sectarian
but is all encompassing

God is simple
He was made complex
but is always understanding

What Women Want in Men

Some women want their spouses
to be real hardcore and a bully
some to be soft and fair bosses
others compassionate and silly
while others want them flawless
just to be loyal, caring and cool
others prefer them to be ruthless
heartless hunk, brute and a fool

Some women don’t like to be pampered
but get their orgasm by being hammered
some prefer buttocks spanked till it bleeds
another chained, dragged until she pleads
some women want lives free of man’s control
some do prefer enslavement to routine patrol
don’t jump to hasty conclusions about women
some proffer kind husbands joy and good omen

treat women with respect, and loving tenderness
they are the harmony to turn man’s lyrics to songs

Ode to Friendship

This is a special ode to friendship
whispers of urgent telegraphic message
running through the membership
dormant friends given the delet passage
lack the ethos of apt consistency
a few real friends are always contributing
their smiles interest the tendency
not shaky, not silent but always inviting

why do you see my COF and whistle
“Boy! Nice pretty chicks you got smiling there
his only chick slept and on a trestle
I smiled at him, “these are real cool friends here
I trim, water them, always nurture
I must only plant a few flowers I well care for
so that their fresh smells give pleasure
he wept “yours smell sweet, mine like camphor

stop crying Boy! Go back to your garden
trim your flowers, reduce their size take just a few

Another Big Bang

Another Big Bang
Ode to Big Man
This is to “You” who calls himself human
gave yourself dominion over all things live
even over half part your so called woman
for where equality is devoid strives strive
but if your big bang had wrought you being
what ageless wheel spun the vortex of time
if has no prior essence of a supreme being?

Another Big Bang
Ode to Big human
If a “hu” is added in a matrix to equate man
then let that “hu” be as the unknown factor
in the mysterious simultaneous equation fan
than blows the blades of your timetable vector
that tells the sun to rise daily from the east
but if every design has a creator as you can
what then is the line between man and beast?
