Don’t despair

Don’t despair
The Blessing is in the house,
He is coming,
Tell her, the poet says,
He is at the door,
Why do you weep?
Celebrate,
He is just a bit busy,
Working out the meeting,
He is the best.
Please wait,
Don’t do it.
It will make you cheap
Wait,
You have been unsullied all along
Get some wisdom
Don’t be otherwise
Be wise,
It is a test. He is preparing to surprise you
Explode with joy

The Sun will shine Today

The sun will shine today.
Though late the night has been,
Through paths so darkened and gloomy
Not for the similitude of our hope
Or a semblance in cavalcade rush
We waited too long for this
No worse than these shall sway
The hopes so high within
The sun will shine today,
The rain will follow with abundance,
Drops so many in eyen of anticipation,
Come as together in this circle with unison and hope,
Holding forth for the blessing yet to come
That we all may say together chasing our doubts and fear
The sun will rise again,
Yes, the sun will shine today.

I know a woman

I know a woman
She will not bend or bow
She calls it liberation,
As against the sobriety expected from her species
A woman so loud and boisterous
Calling her hubby a fool in arrogance
Who would listen to no man or women like her
I know one, who fights in the street to the shame of her kind,
Avoided by decent watcher
I know a rude woman,
A presumptuous fellow,
A shameless talkative,
A street fighter,
A liar too
One on whose face there is an epitaph or calligraphy
Rude
Don’t go near her
I know the woman
A next-door neighbor
I know her by character

A review from Emmanuel “Futility”

Signs carved like paths on sand

Consequences, though late do come.

And constant change of position happen to all shifting our former balances

Burdened by mind bugling voices of our errors

A rare epitaph, in confines

Carries the print obviously

Leave it untainted keep the landmark

Or the upshot might blow you off

Alas, the memory is lost leaving us the trail

God Died Yesterday

Howl!
Vain mortal of helpless arm
Weep as though the tears will bring him back.
Aloud, wail! Cry aloud
The pillars of earth is shaken
Hay broken in twain.
Evil is done, good is gone,
What will you do now?
Oh mortals of all religious circles?

Hide in dust, clergies of vain narratives,
Shave your beards of religion,
Gainsaying priests.
Hell oh hell’s victory,
Bobbles of immortal writs
In grandest shame of ancient confusions.
Vain ecstasies of lying zealots
Spirit, Hell, Demon’s men
In combined war against truth.

Again, WHY?

Bricks of pain heaved on my amber
Hell’s ring tone in fragile ears
Exits incomparable in life’s little memory
A goddess gone, the pillar of a heart’s strength.

Lured above reason by fables
By mean mortals of unknown stature
“They said, and my father said”
to the end of a structure so rare.

Trust tested
Hope crumbled
Among dark rumours of strange narratives.

This heart nurtured for stranger’s glory
A Oprah’s regret found in Ruth.
All entreaties a weak lyric fall
And so must I let go the bird
Into hidings carved by her lust
Seeking a heaven in hell’s lies.

The white man’s GRAVE

This school is not our school
We have our own.
This culture is not our own,
I know it well.

They teach us science
What is it?
And philosophy of their own.

When they say knowledge,
Who is a fool?
Pluto, Plato are not blacks
They impose on us
And make it law.
And have us in their rule condemn
These men are wicked
Tell them so.
In our pain they make their mansion
And gave us food from our wage.

Tell Mbeki, Tell Zuma and Remind Mandela

Please go for me to ZA
Not to live but to deliver a message to Mandela
Tell Mbeki,
Tell Zuma,
Remind Mandela.
That we bore their shame yesterday
When apartheid solders did them wrong
Take this letter to Mbeki
And all the tribes,
We are sorry,
We thought same blood ran in us all
And little knowledge for the bitter anger of brother felon
Tell the Pedi
Tell the Sotho
Tell the Tswana it is a fault and we are the fools
When blood spilled in anger of invading foreigners
And helplessness bore shame of the barrel
While a brother in Gaul languished in pain
We prayed,
We fasted,

Alone..

Alone in the world of writs

I stand alone

To mockery because my shoes are worn,

My suit torn.

Alone,

Because I refused to invest my time

In vanity of men’s wealth

The relentless treadmill of materialism.

The infinity of human thoughts are vital to me

A Tribute to Gani

Yesterday,

It was just yesterday in September,
He was laid to rest in golden casket
Though he lived a golden life to deserve more
Yet as men do,
The celebration of hypocrites comes after demise
Rare Wig gawk the myriads in honour of a true luminary

Yesterday,

It was just yesterday,
Jailed for truth by country rebels for rights
Turned and tortured by oppressor still alive
Resisting venomous illegality where chickens bowed in shame
Bathed in the common cruelty of state sponsored arm brigand

Yesterday,
It was just yesterday,
He roared in courts, despising the hazards
