Will Change change?
1. What will happen to change? Will change change as all things? Or will it develop immunity
A Cue from Ancients of Days
Look up to the sky take a look at the boldness of the sun behold the brightness of the stars they hold no grudges
I HAVE ALWAYS KNOWN
I have always known That you are interested in me And I would fall in love with you That we would be together in this place at this time
Beauty from Behind
Find an angry person And I’ll show you The ugly one Ask for a demon
A Poet's Bedside Note
This is not a suicide note yet not melancholic fate I do not die even so I look and lie
Not A Suicide Note
NOT A SUICIDE NOTE This is not a suicide note Yet not a melancholic fate I do not die
What a woman is not...
She is a woman Cool calm and collected; If placidly, she tugs and lags Like a sheep behind every successful shepherd
In the dark Beyond the reach of light When the day is clothed in black cover And color, height and size exit the stage
Blessed be the Igbo of Nigeria
It's dawn but the birds are still hanging on the trees the moon's just leaving the scene and the sun getting set to rise
the dawn burst thrust through the belly of the night wary by the abiding presence of hosts of milkyway and the mighty moon
I arrived earlier in time To witness the great work of creation When from the dust emerged the first man I saw the destruction of the Noah’s world
Africa of Nigeria
From Wisconsin the American walked the streets of Lagos To black Africa welcome, to the pearly continent Cradle of creation, primordial of civilizations To the thickest jungles, haven of gigantic elephants

Start her up with school She’ll end up in tower and power Give’em to teachers
A song for Mercy
Until the philosophy That holds one up And the other down Is finally discredited

Will Change change?
What will happen to change?
Will change change as all things?
Or will it develop immunity
And embrace hypocrisy?
Will change resist change
And go against its doctrinaire?
Why, will change change not
Should nothing be permanent, even change?
Since change is also a thing.
Our world changes daily by seconds
Our lives in the roller-coaster of time
The noon gives way to the moon
The dawn turns dusk
At intersections of these:
One enters, another exits
One moans, another mourns
One rejoices, one regrets
In the spate and space of...
