Unlabelled phobia II
Vibrating my ear drums
Are stimulus of comfort
In my brain, interpreted as mockery.
My interpretation: Comforting-mockery.
Irony so ironical to real cognition.
Emblazoned on my soma the logo of insecurity.
Fear of what, infact?
Since intact my somatic intellect.
Out to Destroy: A Fiesta of Antagonism
Weird masked face
slaughtering sword of success to failure
helmet of wickedness and melancholy.
Out to destroy…
With great vigour
achievement is fought
with tacts unknown
destructive fire unleashed.
Just out to destroy…
reasons so unfounded
excuses no less flimsy
but other’s anguish
a feasting dinner,
A Nature's Gift
She's magnetic without knowing
Nature's in love with her
that it bestowed on her beauties.
Can I be nature's rival?
Who am I?
What have I to offer?
Though nothing, I cherish her like life.
In duel with nature
I won in mercy.
Nature asked, 'Ask for anything'.
I demanded for her; the magnetic beauty.
I chose not life nor riches
but her, for whom I risked.
She remains my treasured gift.
Thanks to Mr. Nature.
I cry for Mama Africa
Mama’s children once united in love
vying for their brothers
protecting and loving their sisters
Now night has beclouded you
Your voice less that of the ewe
Only sonorous in foreign cove
Your backyard open to strangers
Your roof leak to dangers
Fight for a new dawn!
Stop behaving like a fawn!
Arise! Regain your nature clove
Don’t be insidious
but be amorous…
In fight for your lost glory.
The first day of a year, yes, New Year day
The night before, canons, fireworks are heralds
People look forward in expectation of you.
What makes you different from ordinary days?
You are where many resolutions are manifested
Also, where many die, never seeing the dawn of tomorrow.
Much prayer is cast, much love shared by many
We pray for changes in inconsistencies
And permanence in all dearly past
Happy New Year for you January 1
Let this happiness be shared to all others
Days, weeks, months, years and centuries.
Freedom is Anarchy
Feeling free in full freedom
A quest yet accomplished.
Thinking of the locus and milieu
One, just caring but for himself
The next man a friend without ‘r’
Selfishness as a form of Government
Crudity and rudeness as parastatals
Love, a law against the land
Commitment, crime punishable by death
Patriots, sure candidates for exile.
Free full fledged freedom
How possible for people to practice?
Discerning, doing-destroying at will
For discretion is freedom?
Ultimate freedom allows at least one control
Something controls something
Unlimited freedom is facile.
Re- Presenting Africa
When you think of Africa
you think of blackness
also think of pride and strength.
The black of Africa symbolizes nature
untapped with upheld virginity.
My Africa, where nature’s blessings abound
that you wonder, ponder, sitting like pander
withdrawn to understand, why Africa?
Beats and rhythm Africa’s heritage
home or diaspora your tunes resound
synchronize with your heartbeats
lifts you to hip-hop, waist wreathing
dance steps simultaneous to rhythm.
Happy people only known
when within Sadness gates.
Africans are happy people.
Live and let live
forever our continental motto.
A name so so sweet
for a drama so so set.
With main setting on planet earth,
no drama could be assessed
in so equivocal nonane
settings, attuning non
living and living things.
What an ingratiator the author is!
The characters being adumbrated of their roles
at inception, proffers antagonism or protagonism.
A tragicomedy; irony abounding paradoxical
countenance of thrilling suspense. Bom bom
of disconsolate serenity, superimposed
to be didactic and dual sided.
Oh! this drama of consternation
and imperturbable allay.
Moments toing and froing
lugubriousity and elation.
Dirge and lilt emanating
from different scenes.

When gullets await passersby
And intestines pray for visitors.
Whole body apply functionalism
to make a living.
Education, a second thought.
As planners plan for self kitchens.
Upgrading their lineage and cohort’s.
Little or nothing left for the masses.
Mass education, unthought second thought.
For so long a process.
Black man is impatient.
Through other routes wield affluence.
Education, a sure second thought.
Academic sessions in truncation
with background of non-quasi payment
or divorced wedlock of campus mayhem.
Education, mistaken second thought.
Certificates parade our geography
get no accommodation in official drawers
as offices are transmitted like genes
