Treasure Island

Abubakar Abdulkadir

(21 March,1995 / Niger State, Nigeria)

What Songs Have You?


You've walked the cardinal points
You've surely seen the Landlords
And thier unwritten rules
You've witnessed slavery
Freedom, then murders
What songs have you son
To sing of this world?

Let evil not befall my eyes
Same as saying thou
Let me return before
My eyes could beheld the world
Is it of your aged father
Of peanut pension
Or the war which claimed
Your Mother cold blooded
What songs have you son
To sing of this world?

Crickets mourn at night
But birds chirp of a nearby light
Son, sing no song sang
By the misers
We need hear the songs of hope
The songs of the jamboree
Of the reawakening of dead dreams
Lets hear the songs of the harvest
Of reborned peace

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
