Rising very early from my bed this morning
I’m stunned to see my days glowing with 
The sun’s ray’s
I draw closer to pick my Bible which lies underneath
My pillow
I read copiously from the scriptures
And pray that I may be like...Read More

Dark lakes
A man from north sails in his prime
to get to Accra port on time,
Pirates appear on his way,
He has no treasure today,
Needs to turn around or sublime,

He came to a swamp full of snakes,
As the snakes were scared of bean...Read More

AFRICA'S PUBERTY
AFRICA’S PUBERTY
When puberty sets in,
The wind feels good on
A little leg and thigh,
Some belly button
And budding bottom.
Tattooed dames,
Sexily renamed
From Elizabeth 
And Isabelle,
To Lizzy 
And Bella,
Storm into the world;
Boobs growing as fast as hearts
To be squeezed and broken.
Carrying heads of baskets
Filled...Read More

African Queen wake up
In Kampala African queen lives
In Johannesburg African queen sleeps
In Nairobi African queen smiles
In Lagos African queen sings

In Kinshasa African queen dances
In Addis Ababa African queen debates
In Juba and Mogadishu Africa queen weeps
To Kigali and Accra African queen flies

Golden Key

In a bizarre way I stood awhile
Watching the unfolding melodrama
Got the hint:
Our Queen's Lady in Waiting
Has misplaced our golden key.

Like an eagle must she fly
From Gabon to Gambia
From Mali to Morocco
Search for the snake, the poisonous snake, rip open its...Read More

The Dotted Semibreve
When you get to the king’s palace
My brother
Whenever you get the chance to sit and dine with the king
Do not raise your shoulders so high,
So high above the level of your head
Do not ask him for too many favors
Do not...Read More

Cowardice

COWARDICE
 
My Good Brother
My Good Brother;
When did you turn to be a woman?
A fearful woman polishing your face with several 
Bright assorted creams,
Tending your hair with expired permanent waves,
Wearing very short and transparent dresses that 
Revealed the most hidden parts...Read More

My Golden Little Cat
If my golden little cat could smile and talk
Like we humans often do,
He would boldly say to me;
Please guide me near the sea
Where I could find some fishermen observing
The rapid movement of the tidal waves,
Upon the mighty ocean.
I could there...Read More

 Good Morning!

When the day sweeps 
Away the last drop of darkness, ?
(Aurora with her cool breath, ?
Gently rising to her duties, ?
And with the sun as her companion, ?
Drizzling light into dark corners), ?
It reminds the nursing mother ?

My First Love Experience
It was in the early days of our lives
We met
She was so beautiful 
My eyes could not stop admiring
My heart kept racing 
Every time it sensed
her good-looking approaching
But we were too young 
To give full meaning 
To the love language

Years...Read More

LOVE ON PHONE (2)
LOVE ON PHONE (2)

Two weeks run past us  
Who, when do we breaks the jinx?
She can’t come to Lagos
Her project thesis on her neck
It then fell on my round neck.

I just came back from Accra
Scheduled another to Abuja
Excuses galore...Read More

BOOKSTRINGS 1
I arrived earlier in time
To witness the great work of creation
When from the dust emerged the first man
I saw the destruction of the Noah’s world
And the reconstruction thereafter
The earliest civilization on Egypt soil
Unfolded before my very eyes
The reign of the...Read More
