Olawale Ogunrinola

The mystery and the misery of a phoenix

We saw a beautiful bird flew from a stream;
Just a moment ago she was drenched in ashes,
Because she was formed from ashes and wind-
Ashes that resulted from the sacrifice of her parent.

Her aged mother fed up with life, set herself ablaze;
After several years in planet earth she'll have to go;
She needed a companion but nature denied her one;
She could only have one after she's turned to ashes.

Original sin

An heinous treachery devised by man
The mischievous generation immoral machine
Fabricated by the first settler in ignorance and greed
A machine that has reinvented itself at an alarming rate
It has over time became an illegal prerequisite to visit planet earth
It has conquered Its inventors and dominated their intentions
The seed of Adam forever enslaved to Adam's brainchild
Evil is driving while my poor soul is being hauled along.

Spiral of silence

Like swarm of bees they gather together;
They connived together and acted in unison.
Who could have thought such a mob will find a voice-
All were shouting and screaming "the earth is flat";
It was unanimous and undisputable ratification;
Not a single fool was found to think otherwise;
But after they've all being disbanded to their tent;
A faint inscription was found on the soil where the crowd once stood;
It was written with the finger of a coward for all to see;
Who claim his earth is round and he's got prove.

Super mario

The time for game will come for sure
Time for pleasure with friends and family
Days will come to crack jokes and jist
But today is surely not one of those days

Don't be angry if you beckon and I'm deaf
I'm on the fast lane and to pull over is not wise
My destination is just some meters away
You can meet me there if you really want to talk

Super Mario has got so many life to live
But me with just one life can't play like Mario
Life is no video game and I shouldn't expect an extra life
The only one I have will I use and use it well

Wreckage Of Yesterday

In the days when integrity and diligence
Is all that matters in man's world
When honesty and prudency means all to all
For one that is bankrupt of character and virtue
Is considered weightless and a societal chaff
When crime is punished and not neglected
Even if the offender is considered untouchable
When the fear of gods and elders
Rules both old and young
I just cannot stop wandering what went wrong
Those days disappeared into thin air
All we see now a days is the wreckage of those days
A big bang of compromise and pride was the cause
So sad there is none alive that has the skill to reassemble the wreck

Chasing shadows

By the time I finish the last line
You will realize how foolish I've been
Being a victim of infatuation

I went the extra mile to make her mine
All other things suffered at her expense
I even hated the sight of other ladies

My beautiful princess now rules my thought
I spend and spend till I was poor
All in a bid to make her smile

My room is littered with her image
My brain is polluted with her name
My mind is a captive to her thought

Then I heard from a reliable source
Someone told me she's getting married
She's got herself a man who's not me
