Comments about 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.
Lend me your ears and I shall sing you lullulabies,
And lull you to a peaceful sleep like a newborn.
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? '
You say ...
Our Songs Of Distress
Sorrows fill our hearts,
Pains fill our souls,
We regret coming to earth,
Our clothes are sweat soaked.
We cry unto you for education,
We demand from you futures,
You belched and gave us marginalization,
You become to our dignities the vultures.
