A Letter To Distance

Dear Mr. Distance,

I have a soul across your seas.
When she shall set out

Weep Not Africa!

I lent my heart to the finest breeze,
Sat my soul upon the stillness of its
And wandered far and wide-

In Lagos, God Is Our Neighbour

The compact city of bustling calm
where colours of diverse cultures and ancient tribe
tread to form the rainbow that festooned her roof

Darkness Well Spent

Before the fete of my birth,
life forced it's fiendish fingers
into my feline eyes
and stud my light with

Enslaved In Liberty

Smokes rises from our yards
Yet our yawns stretches for miles
I have seen barns erected
But were brim-filled with naught

The Shore Is Still Off Sight

Captain! Captain! ! A century on this sorry stretch,
Still the shore cloaks in the deep of the horizon.
My condolence to our coughing boat.
We sailed and sailed on reoccurring miles

The Tears Of My Poetry1

These tears pinched from my poetry shall never slack;
They are the tears of roses rooted in black bricks,
They are the tears against the laughters of leeches
Flaunting kegs of brewed blood,

Death Of My Woman

Remember the youth durbar
When you twist yourself
Like salted worm
At the blaring of wonderous drums

The Children Of Angwan Daji

Our footprints are young markings
On the damp earth of Anguwan Daji
This is where the wind whistles
And whisk away our destinies like worn foliage.

The Lady By The Stream1

By the stream in the meadow
Sat a belle jeweled in sparkles
Relishing the smiling serenity
Her hair billowed like a cascade of confetti
