TRIBUTE TO A COMEDIAN

TRIBUTE TO A COMEDIAN
Even with your witty strength 
The little input of the labor 
Of your mouth making the living 
Smile away sorrow through jest of jaw,
As you sleep for too long today,
Wondering if there will ever be 
Another dawn for you to sneeze
And squint your eyelids as
One gulping a cup full of reddish
Cameroon pepper during harmattan
Good to say goodnight as the sleep deepens
Though your name not boldly engraved
In the hearts of many, as the giant in you 
Earlier slept off before you also 
Joined to sleep and never to wake up anymore
