Papa Philosophy
All bark and no bite, 
Better is the termite,
For when solid reality,
Invades your psyche,
You’re a dupe, papa Philosophy

From where I see, yours is curled.
Just when I trusted your robe,
You’re nothing but a hopeless dope,

Feeling small like a wee little sprite
I gaze in wonder at a man-made satellite
Drifting across the earth at such great height
While Mars is aglow with red again tonight

I sit and watch the shooting stars with delight
Their trails gracing the sky...Read More

Trump Wore Broach With Roach

Trump as President around would pouch,
And when he did saw him wear a broach;
Also termite,
Full of spite,
Which would contain silhouette of a roach.

Among all that mean to me verily
JESUS CHRIST, my SAVIOR LORD is indeed the most absolutely
Since without HIM, I am nothing definitely
...HE alone completes me with His BEING wondrously:

Eternal life’s Lamp, always bright
Strength for great faith’s heavenly...Read More

East of Nowhere
Somewhere east of nowhere
stands a rust encrusted shed
In a paddock full of weeds
by a tumbledown homestead

A windmill goes on turning
though the bore has long run dry
and the fence posts are still standing
where the bones of cattle lie

Here a man once...Read More

 Sure of our future as a nation

We Are All Nigerian
Hey! You! Why are you demolishing our scenery?

Turning spellbound city to old monuments

Why are you causing unforgettable trouble?

Making such a big disruption and war

Homes are destitute, in great disrepair   

Why did you carouse the emblem of hate 

Hey!...Read More

Nigerian Tree
(Your Flowers Are Thorns too)
O! Nigeria
Your flowers are thorns,
And thorns are your attire,
When light comes,
They laugh and smell.
In the scorching noon,
You wear the colour of sanes;
And on the slate of the desert
You inscribe your ‘thirst’
You’re an off-shoot of thirst
Upon your...Read More

Inside the furnace of terrorism

Despite Each Terminite
Despite Each Terminite

We have fought for things  that are right,
Despite each enemy and terrible termite,
From sin  free,
Do want to be;
Had took a big  bite with all of his might.

Survive Until Five Five Five Five

Hope my poetry writing will survive
Until I finally arrive at five five five five

Then killed each poem with my knive.

Santa Eulalia
I thought I saw 
The stones almost breathing, 
Trembling above an archway
in perilous union,
Gargantuan slabs of slate sit
Atop rotten roof rafters
Splintering through their wormy hearts
And weathered walls.
The beating wind
That grinds and gnaws,
The pock marked surfaces
And goat licked canyons
Caving in like...Read More

Soldier Termite
Why at war I have no clue
All I do is eat and chew
Don’t kill your flocks
Like a carnivore fox
Or mow your crop
With a locusts chop
Of wood I take a tiny bite
For that you engage me to fight?

The gigantic tree
Such a gigantic tree.
Heads made of three.
Branches swinging free.
Birds set-off and flee.
Such beauty as a lee.
Don't try to be me.
Neither he.
Cast of termite and bee.
Thou fruits resemble thee.
Reproduces abundantly like she.
The ventral view is a key.
The clouds displays like the...Read More

Delusion Grandiose
Delusion of Grandeur! I know not
Maybe i'm high,maybe not

But burnin' in me are now the flames
once drenched in mournful tears,
neath the timid soul in fear;
now ready to shine and surge.

I may not be a crowned head
commanding no army, no troops...Read More
