Nimo, My Sweet Home, By Marcel Ike Okonkwo
Written By Marcel Ike Okonkwo


Under the sound of the Ekwe Nimo
In ancestral groove
One hears the dale and might
And songs of our ancestors
In a land of rich cultural heritage.

Nimo, the land of great heroes where star guides 
And tender moon abides,...Read More

Premium Member The Boy Beyond


Precocious boy, yon ere the age of twelve,
Parades vast knowledge, complexity swelled,
Our simplistic share was well understood,
Kept back of minds, preserves naive childhood.

Green imparts years cherished adolescence,
Bottled, we heed, coupled coalescence,
Errant appendages spark normal steps,
Blessed gifted faculties, fellow class frets....Read More

The electric chair savage,
  womb murder refined

The Dark Truth
Academia blocks real knowledge,
  Native Peoples will attest

So many wrappings covering their lies,
  each field does then arrest

With logic and ethics pointing the way,
  their path leads further down

Young minds abandoned, thoughts astray,
  pontificates espouse

Academia buries...Read More

Beyond academia…
  its cause and effect

Lies a power inherent

Atop its ivory tower

Consensus is trembling

Millennial Academia
The tragedy within the new
  school of ‘thought’ ….

To know ‘about’ everything
  —while knowing naught

Where universities foster
  professorial demise

Poisoning the young
  —with their fantasy and lies

Anatomy of a Snow Day
Smoke trickles from red brick stack

Perpendicular Identity
You stand tall and erect,
strutting about in your pretty peacock
liberal orthodoxy
Aristocratic academia
dressed in silken plumes of rainbow diversity
Boasting that you stand upright,
	ready to fight ...
Champion the common cause of all people
You possess such a peculiar, perpendicular identity
So progressively haughty
You clamor...Read More

Women Bartender Parties 

Their eyes watched 
the bartender,
like a tennis ball, 
volleying to each side, 
bouncing, soft like 
from side to side 
of the bar, filling drinks
and old men's hearts
with wet dreams,
prompting the men 
on gathering closer
to the campfire.

Premium Member Solitude in Academia
Homer, Aristotle, Hobbes, Locke, Goethe, and Crane;
Chaucer, Shakespeare, Dickens, Tolstoy, Whitman, and Twain;
Whose imagination and toil helped to unfold
Stories, philosophies, and lessons to be told.

The inquisitive student absorbed in his books,
Contemplating and learning while everyone looks
At him with judgmental glances,...Read More
