People have take time to ask me,
" Who are you? "
I leave them to answer the question,
Cos I don't have an answer of myself.
After the product of conception,
My parent looked at me and said
" His name will be Joshua" .
Well, I didn't give myself that name.
A friend said after reading my work,
" You have poetic chops" .
Many said, " You're a great poet" .
One said, " You look like a gay" .
Many said, " You're a prophet" .
I remember one said, " You're awesome" .
And many more I can't say,
" A young poet with great heart" , one did say.
Well, they're wrong about me,
Well, they're right about me.
Cos even I don't know myself,
Whether or not I'm a cane, baton or pen.
Maybe the question they intended to ask,
Is " Who do you think you are? " .
If that their question is,
Then I think I have an answer to it.
I am an Equation,
(Not Pythagoras though) .
Well, it may take forever balancing me.

Adeyemi Joshua Poems
heaving hoisted hankering
under tainted touch
callous harmattan clutched
hoisted horizons hankering
dark dances drooling
felon fate fostering
Wearing the makes of Cherubic's glow.
Eyes dimmed with crystal power,
Breaking through emotion like man-power.
vying voluptuous verge
meagre mood metamorphose
saucy spell's sauce
She is always on silk
Endowed in glittering stones.
Wealth often brags, but its not he.
Penury humbly sat, beneath him.
(On the last day)
Wealth and Penury, perish be.
