The Parish

When the time comes we shall all gather, 
People of all walks and talks together, 
In front of the parish for the Holy Communion, 
It is here that we meet our companion, 
In holy matrimony we unite before the father, 

But this is no ordinary parish, 
We separate men from boys before they perish, 
We relish in wines and spirit, 
Just like church goers after the Holy Spirit, 
In beer we trust because its fetish, 

The parish,
I drink until i perish,
In beer my life i cherish,
I wish to make a wish,
Parish, perish, cherish, i wish,

Just like the church seeing holiness in the pope, 
In the bar tender we see drinking hope, 
We speak in tongues under the influence, 
And we never shy away from an audience, 
So don't demonize us, we don't do dope, 

Just like Jesus who walked on water, 
We keep on walking like Johnny Walker, 
On your wall the Holy Virgin Mary, 
On mine you'll find the famous Hale Berry, 
Unlike them were living our happily ever after, 


The parish,
I drink until i perish,
In beer my life i cherish,
I wish to make a wish,
Parish, perish, cherish, i wish,

We've never missed a bar gathering, 
On several occasions you've missed a church meeting, 
We pay all our dues to the bar tender, 
You hardly give two percent tithe to the preacher, 
So when we meet in hell spare me the greeting,

Award Winning Poem

Award winning poem crafted with precision, 
From the finest word smith's concoction, 
To capture the readers eye, 
And move them to agree with I, 

Every golden letter mellow to the core, 
Molded to tell a tale untold before, 
Veni vidi vici; so say I, 
A pen and paper in hand till I die, 

Swiftness in wordplay like a sparrow, 
Able to set the mood right from happiness to sorrow, 
Blowing the theme as wide as the clear blue sky, 
Not forgetting stylistic devices to make the poem fly, 

A poem that will stand out for all ages, 
As the king of modern day poetry outshining all written pages, 
Bringing out soliloquy in a persona, 
So sweet you wish not to end it sooner,

Mercy Killing

What happened last night brother, 
Please tell me it's not true, 
Was i a bother, 
Don't tell me you have no clue, 

Why am i locked up in an asylum, 
Don't you trust me, 
Am i getting my mammogram, 
it's my right to know please tell me, 

Don't isolate me please, 
I beg you, am only human, 
Tell them to handle me with ease, 
Am almost a young woman, 

Don't turn away when i speak, 
I need some answers, 
These injections are making me weak, 
Not forgetting my ulcers, 

Is this about the mercy killing, 
Please brother, don't cry, 
You tried your best but am not healing, 
Please let me die, 

I can's feel my limbs, 
The medicine is getting stronger, 
Please take care of the other siblings, 
Am growing weaker, 

Am done leaving on life support machine, 
Just let me go, 
You tried but am a broken engine, 
lease let my spirit go, 

This are my last words brother, 
Please don't try and save me, 
Last night when i had a seizure, 
The doctor defiled me...,

Mr Politician

Where were you when i lived on gunshots and teargas, 
When the violence intensified and put fear on us, 
When the police brutality coasted me a friend and my face, 
When the eviction notice saw me part ways with my place, 
Now that you are all suits and tie, 
You ask for my vote and leave me to die, 

Internally displaced in own motherland, 
Why should i flee while the perpetrators walk Scot free, 
Have the culprits been brought to hand, 
Those who had us bath in our blood in the killing spree, 
Now that you are all suits and tie, 
You ask for my vote and leave me to die, 

You promised me free education, 
But the tax you demand is like buying a nation, 
And what of the infrastructure you promised us, 
you wouldn't know when you are always flying above us, 
Now that you are all suits and tie, 
You ask for my vote and leave me to die, 

You bought my trust last time and fled, 
And being a fool i trusted you and bled, 
Fighting for you to have a better life than mine, 
But now that you have it, to me you are busy, 
Now that you are all suits and tie, 
You ask for my vote and leave me to die, 

I know about you now, Mr. Politician, 
You beg me then pull a fast one like a magician, 
Ive seen you transform from 'Hope' to 'Hopeless', 
It's my time now, for you i care less, 
Now that you are all suits and tie, 
You ask for my vote and leave me to die,

That Angel Smells Like Lotus Flowers

I know not her name, 
But I can trace her by scent, 
She has driven me into a smell-at-them game, 
And am attracted to her a hundred percent, 

Stronger than my very own Chase, 
But am unable to keep the pace, 
The scent, be it expensive, I'll buy on higher purchase, 
I just want a glimpse of her face, 

Is she a material girl in a material world? 
Who taught her to smell so sweet? 
Whatever the case I'll buy her the world, 
And place it beneath her feet, 

I spoke with the wind to reverse her scent, 
And I followed it to a mansion so beautiful, 
It is here that I'll pitch my tent, 
Till I see this angel that converted me to a beauty fool, 

Alas! A master piece, 
If she isn't a runaway angel from heaven, 
Then God must have really been at peace, 
And created her in days more that seven, 

Introduce myself I shall, 
Even if its only for a while, 
Am Leonardo da vinci, please Monalisa smile, 
But she disappears behind that great wall,

The Unusual Fragrance

The unusual fragrance looms above my room, 
Its owner not yet known, 
Its purpose still a mystery I assume 
Sweeter than any other fragrance I ever own, 

Its mood is ataraxia, 
Cold soothing scent, texture so smooth, 
Like dying in a peaceful euthanasia, 
I have it trapped in a booth, 

Smells like angels on a spring break, 
Dancing gloriously in the water fall, 
With a rattling feeling like an earth quake, 
Its particles bouncing from wall to wall, 

Clogged in my mind is a fog of disconcert, 
As I battle my feeling to a perfect stranger, 
The feeling of unrest causes discomfort, 
As the unusual fragrance puts my heart in danger,

Please Stay If Just For A while

Please stay a little while longer,
Hold me closer if only for a while,
Cry if you want I give you my shoulder,
Please stay if just for a while,

Let’s sit and gaze at the moon,
While we cuddle after a moments smile,
Feel every spasm so sudden so soon,
Please stay if just for a while,

I have the answer to your every wish,
Be it a kiss, love, put them in a pile,
Let’s live this moment even if in a notion,
Please stay if just for a while,

Feel my haevy breathing down your neck,
As I explore the pleasure not found in a smile,
So pure is love, am unable to find in a speck,
Please stay if just for a while,

Let’s overdose on insomnia and forget about sleep,
As we loose ourselves in quality time for just a mile,
If you be the shepherd am no less a sheep,
Please stay if just for a while,

If you leave I pray don’t say goodbye,
Sadness would drive me to faint and I won’t revive on salvolitile,
Just tell me you’ll be back even if it’s a lie,
Please stay if just for a while,

Save The Last Dance

I saved you the last dance,
So let's dance the night away,
And wish that the music never ever stops,

I keep hoping and praying that this music never stops,
And my feet never get tired to dance,
And your mind never thinks of walking away,

I felt your heart beat from miles away,
So gentle and in sync with mine and it never ever stops,
In your embrace i found my music so let's dance,

Tonight lest dance the night away until the music stops,

Be Thy Valentine For A Little While

Please stay a little while longer,
Hold me closer if only for a while,
Cry if you want I give you my shoulder,
Be Thy Valentine For  A Little While,

Let’s sit and gaze at the moon,
While we cuddle after a moments smile,
Feel every spasm so sudden so soon,
Be Thy Valentine For  A Little While,

I have the answer to your every wish,
Be it a kiss, love, put them in a pile,
Let’s live this moment even if in a notion,
Be Thy Valentine For  A Little While,

Feel my heavy breathing down your neck,
As I explore the pleasure not found in a smile,
So pure is love, am unable to find in a speck,
Be Thy Valentine For  A Little While,

Let’s overdose on insomnia and forget about sleep,
As we loose ourselves in quality time for just a mile,
If you be the shepherd am no less a sheep,
Be Thy Valentine For  A Little While,

If you leave I pray don’t say goodbye,
Sadness would drive me to faint and I won’t revive on salvolitile,
Just tell me you’ll be back even if it’s a lie,
Be Thy Valentine For  A Little While

Protect My Castle Oh Lord

Protect my castle oh lord, 
Be my shield and sword, 
Fight those who fight against me, 
Make peace with those who respect me, 

I bow to God alone, 
HIM that blessed me with a throne, 
HIM that reigns over Angels and Demons, 
The Supreme Being, conqueror over all weapons, 

Silence is best weapon, 
So I talk less and write my throne, 
I laugh at them acting like a clown, 
Because what I possess is greater than a crown, 

They might be big bad and brave, 
But they'll be grieved gone to the grave, 
Living me, mean machine, 
At the throne of words you can't imagine, 

Pen and paper, words in mind, 
This won't stop lest I go blind, 
Just like wine I get better with age, 
And I keep writing my future page by page, 

Watch over my troubled soul, 
In this war of words, the air gets foul, 
Until the last King of Poetry stands, 
I place my castle unto your able hands,
