Arise, O compatriots, Let’s come together to build the broken walls,
Arise, your sinking ship for safety calls;
Let’s rebuild our heroes’ humble halls.
Nigeria's call obey,
Like a baby she yearns and yells for succor;
The spears and swords of war grieves her...Read More

Brain Drain Explained 

There's an echo in my ears,
And a heart full of tears,
Going down, going down the drain,

There's a cry on fingertips,
And a why on my lips,
Going up, going up the brain,

There's an ache in my old head,
And a...Read More

Alice was just going on eight years old
When Lewis Carroll made her fall down a hole.
The incredible place she imagined she'd found,
Buried in her backyard so far deep underground,
Teemed with people and creatures
With fabulous features
Too strange and bizarre for a...Read More

Sometimes I search my heart
When a poem I try to start
And believe me it is a real pain
When you find yourself with acute brain drain.

Why this happens I do...Read More

Caffeine fix jerks
Words seem to work

Brain drain feels blur
A weary slur

Coffee sip here
Prompts fuzzy cheer

Words on the verge
Surge odd emerge

Verses to write
In a brisk cite

Unclog the dyke
Then take a hike

Hijack clear lease
Spice lines that tease

Dark night moves slow
Strange wordplay shows

Back pain, ankle strain, brain drain 
Wake up dead no pain, no strain 
Positive thinking eyes are blinking
Sun moon and stars red rosy mars 

Negative thinking my feet are stinking
Just want this day to slip away

Verse scripts tell
All’s not well
Where we dwell

Lines of rhymes
Stretch lost time
As gloom chimes

Words try wit
In odd fit
In loose bits

Rhymes seem dull
As words cull
A dumb skull

Thought seems vain
To hook plain
That brain drain

Less seeds more
As touch spores
From deep core

Purge thoughts fake
As gist...Read More

Is There No Place for Us
Is there no place for us ? 
In this world of work and fuss ?
We came to fulfil our dreams
Leaving our noble motherland with goodbye tear streams 
We are prisoners of a dark dank cell called race
Named so because of...Read More

Philosophical usually means “of the brain”
To this guy it usually means a real brain drain
As we all get older
Our brains still smoulder
But our drive takes a detour to a different plane

Unclog my head: harvest the grain

Oshkosh – OH MY GOSH!!

Butt crack

Plumb Sexy

No stench

Blue pill

A Sense of Balance

A sense of balance is all I need to cope,
so I don’t hang myself with a rope.
I’ve got to get a grip on life and keep my sanity.  
God can’t save me if I don’t have serenity.

Nourishing nutrition is...Read More

Why, when, and did we reached there ourselves??
     When have they become our voices, and spokespersons??

Aa Nonsense Poem

Now as I sit here
With an O shaped mouth
Wishing to write something
Ending up writing nothing...

Tired I am
Of this common brain drain
Greeting us all in this abode...

I can't write
I wish to work
None is here...

My dream job knocks

Lucid Socialism and Nuclear Safari
Socialize your piety
Whilst still capitalizing on figurines
Maximum bust on trophy shelf
Doing it all in cutthroat seas

Wandering in lucid dreams
Charging up energy to believe
Now out on dottted lines
Where traffic does confine
Minds strapped against time

Look around towards horizon's smile
the lustrous safari outstretch...Read More

The stamp and the stigma
The office of credibility
Stamps their approval
A latent rising over the stalk

Chafing, is the stigma
Medicalizing or criminalizing
The avid loophole watermarks
Blurry in their dispossesion
Searching for means to an end

What end of perspective?
Could ask for proof
Of insanity
In a doctors authoritative opinion

Avoid the brain...Read More

Sliced Her Like A Knife Slice
The Story: 

ragged faded 
lady hoarder, 
diva boarder, 
dancin' to the tune 
of her Dandelion Wine. 

milky-eyed maiden, 
peddles paper posies, 
masticating carnivore, 
toothless, useless whore. 
not on her best night! 
not anymore! 

acclimated alleyways, 
rodents without fear, 
muddle-minded...Read More
