Bronze Star - 2,688 Points (30th, november 1991 / JOS NIGERIA)

Time Scroll - Poem by ONOJA ANTHONY

Jolly! jolly! whosoever I catch is my prey
She hides in savannah and green world
As I search the entire heaven corners
Then we sing the song of rainfall and dance the bleat of goats and birds whistle alike.

Childhood were have thou heels to?
Best times where are thy claws?
Thou flee like lost parrot, in void of time you were but a blank deceit
If it not for sunset I never could have thought you were real.

Then she wave back in sunset with dust of maturity, it enter my two naked eyes
I never thought she could leave but I now have a title in my armpit and a statue on my egos.oh! time you scroll so fast as I thought you were but a snail.
