LIMPOPO

LIMPOPO

Limp o limp, Limpopo
Stop the downward flow
Limp o limp, Limpopo
Take the upward motion
Limp o limp, Limpopo
Towards the paths on which the sun refused to glow
Limp o limp, Limpopo.
Come water this dry nation.

PIERCED

PIERCED

U sold to me
Painted lies
Across the river of love
U sow’d a bed of coloured hopes
Tell me
Why do u find pleasure painting gloomy hopes?

And u said
I shall forever glow in your heart
More than the burning sun heats planet earth
My love shall heat your heart
Indeed
A fiery dart

My tears flow to flooded streams
My heart bleeds
I taste the agony of love
In this memory lane
I remember a tale of yesteryears
When u promised me heavens

My heart bleeds
My soul weeps
A poisoned arrow
U have thrust
In the marrow of my trust

A piercing dagger
U have thrown
Like a smashed snail drowns
In it’s own flood,
I stagger
In this pool
Of brokenness
Secured through void hope

U turned the tables
U rolled the wheels
Today I stand transfixed
Watching helplessly
As our boat sail away
To distant lands
Sound the gong
Gather the people
Sing unto my soul
A sorrowful dirge

Pierced!
Drain’d and disdained
Drawn from life
Into lies
By ties
I thought were right
I die the death of love
Let love sing a new mirth
Raising me from this death

TRINITY

TRINITY

From the descent of Aseda comes three men with the mandate
Who live somewhere up above the moon.
The whole world turned mundane
And the sun lost its power at noon
When one of them was betrayed.
.
The world raced
Darkness fell upon the earth
Gloom washed the face of the sky
Even the stars mourned the betrayal of a priceless saint
A son whose innocence,knows no stain.
.
These three men made a pact
To make the one a three
And the three a one
For none was independent of the other
They house each another
Like a shell, a yolk and an albumen
Lke water,
And steam and ice,
Spirit, soul in a body.
.
In the thrilling three
Love and unity, a bond-age around them
In partnership, these men shake the pillars of the earth
United in one purpose
Their existence,a mystery
An unsolved puzzle to mankind.
.
But will this triune lose its tune?
As the spirit clamours for freedom
From it’s soul and body
Which held it sturdy
.
We birth and we die
But God is in Nigeria.
.

Broken Pitcher

Broken Pitcher

HELP! I need a mechanic to repair this breaking news!
I did walk on the way but now I sway
Feeling like I should run away
I feel gone astray
The environ is not conducive
Nothing is supportive
‘Tseems I’m on the wrong side of the world.
I did cry,’this is my dignity’
The first of my priorities
But you soiled my integrity
Uncontrolled emotions the Case’s nitty-gritty

I gave u my Pitcher for peace
But u crushed it against a piece of rock
Please, gather my pieces

In vain did my heart tingle
The tangled tingle of the bell amidst the
Tussles
In here are crimson pieces of
Glossy glowing sometimes gloomy and gloating
Love-glittering glinting glimmering glazing
Gleaming Glassware

Boys are not smiling!
Mosquitoes are biting.
Bikers are riding
It is raining
And Love is cold
Who will get Love warm?
A warmth shivered down my cold spine
I cry red and blue
But ‘I do my crying in the rain’
Yet, it breeds red floody indigo
Course-ing it’s course down the Niger
I am the synonym of a Broken Pitcher
Feeling like loving again.

No Chance for Love Today

No Chance for Love Today

There are no roses in the garden,
No chance for love today.
The sky no longer blues,
No chance for love today.
.
Harsh blackish grey sky,
No time for love today.
Pick your eighth feeling,
No chance for love today.
.
Run o horse and chariots
Romeo is set for a revenge.
Why should you cause her to die?
No chance for love again.
.
He got to heaven to see Juliet missing
No chance for love again
Dance with swords and shake the spears
For love is murdered in the streets.
.
