WE . . .NOT FRUSTRATED(Prof. Olufemi Bamiro)UIVC

WE . . .  NOT  FRUSTRATED

Those whose mouth  speak and ooze 
Only fire of a voluble vibrating vocabulary 

Those whose sin is just speaking for others
In order for their other orders not to be ordered

Those whose lives were almost snuffed
Away by the ordered ultra-fascists gangsters   

Those whose words sparkles only fire 
To fire the unfired spirits into burn- fires

Those whose political jargons-renditions
Send thousands frenzy for action

Those whose offence is probing beyond 
The nostril above their faces

Those who are ostracized for louding the truth
Above the speaker of the U and I garden

                          These
Are those my bird flock together with
During the day in search of the night

I among those given heavy knock on 
The head for these inequities known only to them

I among those who are painted in stinker Toga 
Of  Miscreants, Disgruntled elements,…

I among those placed on a four season wheel-chair
With a gun powder explosion underneath
  
                              But
For them their son that strike the cheek of a Porter
More thunderous a slap to be queried nor be punished

For them their sons and daughters whose oblongata
Remains blank but full of giraffe and chips in the exams
  
For them their  stooges that converse with guns and goons
For them that smile with axes, guns, daggers . . . 
To strike, shoot and maim others

For them  their anchors that knows nothing but something
For out of their nothing lies violence and blood
For they speaketh nor write 

For them their boys they present a golden plate of honour
Found worthy in learning and character
Doomed to become menace to the society
  
For we . . . remain resolute
For we . . . not frustrated 
For  we . . . not cowed 
For we . . . unperturbed 

For we shall uphold the pillar of truth
Until our struggle shall beam light en route the tunnel

Conceptualised after my four semester rustication
Verdict by Prof.Bamiro UI VC led SDC in
 University of Ibadan on the  31st of January,2006.
 A Promise to myself to refire  the struggle not to retire.
