Babatunde Aremu Poems
Ink Is My Blood
I am a poet. There is ink in my blood. I flow through lines As a river meandering its course.
There are billions of stars in the sky There are trillions of lamps on earth None glows like the beautiful moon At your uprise the world glows
Mr soldier is woken by the beagle Left, right he is marched on by the whistle The sound of the whistle Is a clarion call to duty
Open those tight fists Do not hold back Make your palms transparent Release that dime
They know the truth Yet they tricked the truth They see the truth Yet they are blind to the truth
Crazy For Fashion
Birds do beautifully display Their feathers in the skies Lions proudly show off Their brittle hairs in the jungles
Do not say I am biase There was a beautiful woman She was the best of all women An epitome of selflessness
Just Before Dawn
Just before dawn Ere light glows Just as cock crows Before the early morning bell
Just A Smile
It may look ordinary But that smile is pleasant To take away those strains Exude that inner joy now
Because I am A Special Man
I am a specal man Addressed as a gentleman My posture is calm Inside me is ruggedness
A stone cast into the sky Must surely fall down to the earth No matter how greenish the grass is It is a rich delicacy to herds
Angels We Need
Often we gaze into the sky Longing for the descension of the spirit Oblivious of the angels around us We discontence the God-sent in our midst

When you see a man behaving well People are curious to know his family When a naughty interacts His source is easily identified
Terror In The Land

The elephants cocooned behind trees;
Lions buried their claws underground;
The tigers wrapped their canines with leaves;
In awe of ferocius alliance of foxes and hyena.
The roaring of the new predators
