Treasure Island

sholadoye Dada


It came at the middle of my sleep
Standing as the pillar that holds heaven from earth
Like a message sent unto Elijah
Delivered from one of the stations in heaven
Stating, “the news in full from heaven”

With headlines firing like bullets
Warning against disobedience and disguise
Politicians who are good in deceiving the people
Stating heaven has started pampering their destruction
As a caption from “the news in full from heaven”

Lovers who says it’s a game
Toiling with the heart of their spouse
You have registered for a competion
Whose championship is to hell
Says, ”the news in full from heaven”

For leaders that exhibit misconduct
Followers that violate rule of law
Stakeholders are agonizing for you
As you could miss the flight to heaven
Making for more issues in “the news in full from heaven”

As I jostle to wake like a criminal on the run
Only to find a bulletin lying helpless beside me
Imprint in bold: the deaf should tell the blind
You’ll one day be called home
I knew at once it’s “the news in full from heaven”

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
