Poems of Chibueze Oscar Osuji

Ode To Envy

MY BROWS, concave in mischief plot
Furr'wing my forehead in a knot,
Envy come O wick'd wave
Blow'ng your breath in my human blood;
Let your tides roar as a rowing flood
In th' harbour of a slave.

I have seen the joys of a friend
Of which I neither comprehend

[Hata Bildir]
