Letter To Prof Wole Soyinka
to the stone that sharpens axe,
to the stone that grinds pepper,
to the bird that swallows snake,
to the woman who swallows man,
to the man who swallows lion,
to the hunter who returns
from exploit, when the day breaks,
When Wisdom Is Lost
When wisdom is lost what do we use to find it?
If the head is cut why should the cap become prominent?
Where the wall is broken, who clamours for keys?
When the man is burnt who still looks for beard?
'Tis only a fool that looks for the mark of cut in water
He only can look for the tracks of flight of birds
Or better still want to know what the corpses eat in the grave.
When wisdom is lost, the elders dance naked in the markets
Passing calabashes of palm wine in merriment.
