SALUTATIONS

Salutations to all the poets
That waters my ink,
Those whose words never
Make my heart shrink,
Of you always i ever will think,
Standing alone, i could sink
So i grasped on your knowledge
That is without stink. 
        *=~*~=*
Phyllis Babcock is a raining day,
In her Motherhood, no 
Hot sun to hinder my play.
Carolyn Devonshire is a rose flower,
Tender Mother and even from afar, her
Lightening Ink draws me closer.
        *=~*~=*
Linda Marie, the Sweet heart of P S,
Is the essence of love letters
Her poems are like the good weathers,
Constance La France is indeed a rambling poet,
No wonder,her lines drives me to the point,
Doris Culverhouse won my heart,
She trades literature,
The poet Destroyer kills me
With Ink, a poet by nature.
Dr. Ram Mahta is a poetic chef,
He stirs the soup with delicious thoughts.
         *=~*~=*
Heart dedication to all my poetic friends...
For your presence is like fragrance to my breath.
Gari La Buda, an inspiration, Richard Carrie, a melodious pen, Carol Brown, a steady one,
All of you are Lightening Inks.....

Things Fall Apart

Adamant mindsets
In a modern setup,
Vibrant visions evaporates
To emptiness, nothingness and waywardness.
Leaving the people in stark darkness,
Leading to nowhere,
As penury is declared "king",
Hunger succeeds the throne
As blind leaders  hardened the 
Economy like bone.
Giving peanuts to the peasants
But gold for the wealthy,
Oh! what a chess game in the midst
Of blind spectators.....
Mothers swaying in tattered rags,
Struggling with drying breasts which 
Produces the hopeful milk of the skinny infants...
Children strolling with empty plates
Searching for who to wet their throats.
Fathers planting courage and assurance,
Hoping the land will be milky someday,
Yet the center is not holding
For heads are plenty but the brains are few...
Therefore turning weakening hearts
To marauding crooks,
Victimizing themselves,
Staining their whites,
Be litling their lives,
Insulting their hands
Making the land stink,
While Africa bears the smell,
To the detriment of her virtue. 
Our agricultural and peaceful 
"green white green", they've turned to 
A dark and bloody "red black red".
Now who leads who in this
Criminal war front, corrupt justice
And indecisive generation?
Things fall apart when truth step aside,
Evil takes the lead when black minds
Score the goal...
Things fall apart when the people can't merge.

LOVE

**a special dedication to the Poet Destroyer**

Love, sweet key of joy
The stare into my eyes are...
Forever calling.

African Child

" From the debt of my heart"

The African child
Sat behind the bamboo fence
He was sober and tense
Sputtering and wondering.
He forsook the bush meat
And the gathering under the moonlight
For sobriety and the causes of his uncertainties.
His clothes were like dried leaves
His feet like openings in the eaves
He longed to see a brighter tomorrow
He clarified the causes of his sorrow;
Sins of the father,
Fighting not to make things better
Therefore darkening the weather,
Making his destiny falter and bitter.
Tears exuded from the sound of his flute,
His fears enlarged like a parachute
But one thing he never understood,
Watch and pray, oh! African root
For your foundation is stinky, filthy,
Faulty and guilty...... watch and pray.

A caring One

A caring one is more 
Than sweet fragrance,
Even when sweet fragrance ends,
The caring one remains...

The Immoral Beauty

Night falls, and she stood up quickly,
Brushed up swiftly, arranged her
Hair briefly yet attracted, for her 
Beauty, and smooth face like the 
Surface of her chest... 
She walked to the door slowly,
Turned gently, and stirs at herself subtly 
From head to toe, then to her mirror 
Which she earlier disdained.
Her hand bag contained
Preservatives protecting her horror,
Midnight she is a terror,
Daylight, an innocent beauty,
If you see her you will want her
As your lady, to make you matrimonially busy,
And happy.
But, try her and see, you will
Have yourself to blame after burning you up like flame, 
Guys in new york calls her BEACH,
After they tried, but her
Heart they never REACH.
Wall street barons see her and flee, for she stings like a bee,
And her deception, they never 
Want to see.
Las Vegas Cassino is also her prey,
To most night lovers, her tentacles 
She spray.
If she smile you will think she is shy,
If she talks, you hear a nightingale,
But when you look into her profile,
You will find out she is filthy and guilty,
She is the immoral beauty...

My Mother

Old mother's pot of soup is 
Like a goldmine that promotes
And brightens my face...
Even it is not palatable to others,
To me it is like apple in my mouth,
Making my countenance rich and sure...


                                          ** FOR COMFORT AKPAN**

Innocent night

The innocent night of shame and 
Disdain,
Guiltless night of pains in the 
Vain, 
A bruised night of groans and stains 
Of deception,
Peasing  so deeply and pressing me 
Strongly.
Only God can console me, only God can 
Defend me as he did in the innocent night
Of tears and fears.
Only God can judge and console....

Mercy's obsession

A FEATURED POEM (07/11/2010)

    MERCY'S OBSESSION:
-------------------------------------------

Mercy's obsession is how to give a solution
To he who prays to be her possession.
She needs a decision,
All she is in now is confusion,
But i bet this is nothing of delusion.
I wish she come to a steady conclusion,
So she, i and all will be aware the love's
Pleasant request is a thing of predestination.
And she shall occupy my emotions,
Her sweet sensations shall enjoy every
Little, large moment of my elegant
Declarations.

How ever,I rise

In your mind you conclude that
'this one is a dried bone'.
And you look at me as if am alone, 
But i have got back bone that makes 
Me rise.

I rise! for i am the glittering shining rising star.
I am the African sunrise
I am the future surprise
I am the poetic merchandise
The most wanted prejudice   
The lightening  ink that thunders rebuke
At your envious heart.
I am the black talking drum, 
Talking, making sense as in twisting
Your brain until it starts learning to make sense.

Does my boldness frighten you? 
Why restless when am stress less? 
Why do you freeze when i breeze in? 
You device means to see am falling
But if i fall i will rise more rooted, 
Sure footed, like a tree in the swamp.
Till tomorrow or even till i finally mellow
However, i rise.
Though is not by my strength, i'm only a serving vessel.

Out of thatch huts and bamboo fence
Emerged the future modeling art.
Banana boy from hot black soil, 
To become a glorious star.
Who cares if you like it or doubt it or not to admit
That my prophetic poetic tonic makes your brain 
Charge like alcoholic toxic.

However, i rise...
I rise like a balloon going high high...
Like Maya Angelou, 
I rise! i rise! !
