Biography of Joba Akinola
I'm a male Nigerian who writes deeply inspired poetry of many forms and themes, transversing politics and love, to spirituality and philosophy. An eclectic poet indeed. I believe that poetry is not an art form intended to be written just for the fun of it, (though it is definitely meant to enjoyed, hence its beauty) but with a wider view to enlighten and heighten social consciousness. So I always say to the modern poet: 'Keep it conscious, if you lose it, your poetry's dead...unconscious.' I also perform spoken word poetry.
Joba Akinola's Works:
Still cooking 'em books! ! !
The Bar-ttle indeed is ahead of us,
Like cattle, a head of course,
And we're set to it devour
I can hear the applause, the devoirs
The maidens with cymbals singing for us,
'Saul has maimed thousands,
But David has slain ten thousands'
Then like David, we'll pen psalms,
Lines vivid like those on our palms,
