Best Poem of Adeoye Adetoba

Red, Red, Red

Scarlet Women!
You've turned my soul crimson.
My eyes bloodshot
My heart aflamed with red fire
Ignited by the red lights in your district
And all i see is red, red, red.

Consumed by the fire you harbour,
The excitement on mutton has vanished
At the emergence of painful red sores
Acquired from your workbench.
Fire burns in my crotch
And all i see is red, red, red.

Scarlet Woman!
Woe to the man you lure into your red chamber.
Your pit of hell is pleasant at first
But the agony thereafter is hellish.
I have eaten the sour grapes you ...

Òjé Màrínà

He told us lurid stories of his exploits
In the jungle. His fights and victories
With the lions, hyenas, cheetahs and tigers,
Yet he bore no scratch.

Of his peregrinations abroad
In search for solutions to our problems,
Yet his only fatigue came from his verbiage.

[Hata Bildir]
