The cry of the people

with hopes high 
I remember how...Read More

I remember a dear friend, among a host;
A friendship with which I could boast
Among colleagues our friendship was the toast
And our story is still told from coast to coast.

She Belongs to the Other Room
The hailings in the coridor of corruption
to the echoes of silence in the streets
Sirens whispering tales of wars
marines marching on looted lots
Justice is strangled by corrupt claws
Listen to the thunderstorm of civil lies
Masses keep mute in the well of woes

My Muse Got Me Thinking
When would this country be well again?
When would Nigeria be good again?
Who is against us or for us here in Nigeria?
When would our democracy speak for us?
When would you and me learn not to trust?

Its creation’s simplicity still stands as a difficult puzzle
head is twisted backwards while in a forward motion
still looking behind at the chronicles of some centuries ago
long before the infiltration of Christian missionaries and Arab traders
is the exact factor making its...Read More

WHAT MEN CALL LOVE
He is in Abuja and She is Lagos
They have gone to swim 
On a faithful day
And his emotions has been awakened
To an extent he can’t hold

He has never tasted her 
And wants to
She is pretty 
And he thinks he likes...Read More

THE TWO BROTHERS, LEMMY AND REMI

There were two of them
Lemmy and Remmy...
Two leaders born 
Born of destiny

The weight of government 
Must rest on the shoulders 
Of Lemmy and Remmi 
Israe-el and Leki

One king the other kingsman
One immortalized one mortal

There is no telling them apart but

We do recall the day Abuja
arrived in a strange flying machine 
claimed to have created da ding..
landed at the caffe near..
our lecture halls...

Abuja took some permanent markers-
wrote some gibberish on the wall..
alluding to a malfunction of his-
time machine..the...Read More

From Makurdi's Benue river beach
To those peaked crags of Jos
Let them hear...

This Court
It should have been here, this court
Here in Arusha or Abuja or nearer
This court that seeks to try Africans
For crimes said to be committed
Against people here in Africa
Not at The Hague, not in Europe
Not in the belly of the serpent
That...Read More

Beasts on Two Legs
I heard a cry,

A lad of four bled

After having quenched

Her Dad's libidinal thirst



I saw the door open,

Brother and sister walked out,

Adam's forbidden apple having been eaten

As instructed in the blood-house of money



In New York I heard a cry,

Woman was on...Read More

Abuja
Abuja 

A city of a thousand hills 
Resplendent in beauty 
Symbol of a nation's unity 
The center of its glory

Basked in the morning light 
A vision to behold 
Cuddled, the topography 
Landscape so alluring 

Protected by smouldering rocks 
Great and...Read More

POETIC JUSTICE

Against a twin bomb blast that left separated Limbs...Read More

CHANGE
They say it’s all we need 
But would it be all we see,
When it comes, is it constant?

Do we need a monster?
To give us the thing we need?
Do you always get what you seek?

AGONY
Lagos booms
Portharcourt blooms,
Abuja blossoms
in the loveliness of my cream.

Niger sings,
Kaduna cheers,
Kano salaams,
in the rivers of my tears.

Alone....all alone,
decay and desolation gather days
and in woe my nights.
All things that love the sun mourn
on every side of me.

Look!.......look!
Look at my darkly face.

JOURNEY PAUSED
Our journey got paused 
I insisted to the passengers
Let’s sleep on our way

Then, we move on ‘morrow morning 
Dissenting voices echoed diverse views
I offered to alight at the park
Couldn’t put my life at risk

STILL TRAPPED
We got trapped for seven hours 
We couldn’t un-trap ourselves
From the dungeon of the road
Couldn’t call or receive calls
Was indeed incommunicado 
Sim card got stuck 
Would we ever get to our destination?

She got fed up, endlessly waiting
Luck smiled on me...Read More

Scheduled another to Abuja
