Kubiat Bassey Poems
Once, a man on the street I met Elegantly dressed in tattered clothes Different colours it had More to come
Mama Africa's Cry
I hear wailing in the streets Wailing from the deepest pits Tears flooding ebony feet 'Woe, woe, woe to them all
We were friends Just friends I smiled at you You smiled back
Run Away Love
My heart, my love My loving dove Beautiful as the morning sun In you I find a living song
The Coming Messiah
The hour draws nigh For the coming messiah What shall he be? What shall our eyes behold?
Ufan Mi (My Friend)
Our friendship none compare Thick, thin, you are there Like the sweet scenting flowers Our friendship shall bloom
Lilo Da Dadi
Lilo da dadi Place me on that merry swing On a day so bright Face full of happy bliss
Night dies For the day To be born Day comes
Sounds From Heaven
On a cold harmattan night After a long day's toil Heavy at heart was I Until I heard the sweet voices
Tick tock goes the clock I stare into empty space- Nothing The earth dancing the Waltz
The Coming Messiah
The hour draws nigh
For the coming messiah
What shall he be?
What shall our eyes behold?
Shall false prophets rise?
Proclaiming deeds never to be done?
Shall hungry sycophants
Shower upon him praises
