Remember me

REMEMBER ME (poem 
for all poets by 
Adesitimi Taiwo 
Damilola)

I am a poetic hero;

In my veins flow 
rivers of satire
And my words are 
the locusts,
Munching 
corruption’s 
greenleaves!

My words speak for 
the mere men,
And shines light on 
the darkdeeds
Of them that loot our 
war chest!

My words are like 
the lightning
Showing you a path 
to the shore of 
solace
When sorrow rains 
on your heart!

So remember me 
when I've gone
The way of my fore-
fathers,
Beyond the border 
of this world!

When I go where 
legs shall walk
Into the womb of the 
earth
On the lane of 
eternal silence!

My people let my 
words remain
In your heart and 
recite my verses
When thorns grow 
on your earth!

Whisper my name to 
the ears
Of your unborn, that 
I was once thunder,
Before the time of 
their rainfall!

Nigeria, celebrate me 
now
And when I breathe 
no more,
Inscribe my name on 
remembrance’ wall!
