Korsi Senyo Poems
Storm At Sunset
In my little peaceful slumber The wine of solitude blow Haring, sway branches here and there, Gyrate, feign fence my solace
The Pregnant Season
The season is pregnant And carry in her wombs beautiful Bouncing babies yet to be born Men form humanity club to discuses her delivery day
I’ll Change My Name
I give you thanks all my people Congratulations, For helping change my name Which initials would not be known to our ancestors.
Like You Andam
LIKE YOU ‘ANDAM’ I’ll be like you, In capitals will I always spell your name ‘ANDAM’
The Pregnant Season
The season is pregnant
And carry in her wombs beautiful
Bouncing babies yet to be born
Men form humanity club to discuses her delivery day
Why, why so soon this season
While I’m still in my dark ages
And have no place for my babies
As if I don’t know when you were pregnant
