Best Poem of Babatunde Idowu Ebenezer

I Am A Poet

Listen to the words rolling out of my mouth like thunder,
Just pause a moment,
And give a thought to the thoughts,
Oozing out of my mind like fire.

Come near me and feel,
The vibration of the lyrics,
Of my heart shattering dirges.
Yes, pass across my way
And the rhymes of my
Drumless songs will not
Make you dance but
Siphon out tears from your eyes like raindrops.


But you say I am no poet.
I ask you 'Who is a poet? '

the fields of green
Stalks of corn gloriously
praising the creator.
With the breeze comes a
feeling so serene.
In the distance, growling like
thunder the voice of the
curator.
