Life Is Beautiful But In Vanity It Lies
If the Saviour had yielded to the temptation
by bowing down at the beautiful but wicked feet,
would the world still be a better place?
I think you know the answer,
I Tried To Be, But They Discouraged.
I tried to be a politician, but they said my mind was too flexible, politics is for devilish mind.
I tried to be a soldier, but they said I was not tall and hefty, guns are for hefty men.
I tried to be a writer, but they said I did not have a prolific mind and my language was not cleared enough.
tried to be a lecturer, but they said I was too young and lack experience, my students would not listen to me, I tried to be a trader, but they said it was a job for the women.
Ode To Idanre Hills.
'O famous and enormous hills
sited in an ancient town,
the pride of the sires,
I salute and adore thee.
To My Living Dead God
He says you are mighty and full of wrath
crowns trembles when you call out,
you derive pleasure in drinking palm wine,
your holy water, as it was called.
Ogbeh Chinasa Happy
Insooth, my heart palpitated fitfully
when I dauntedly made myself your suitor
but hope finds a place in my heart
and form a counterpoison to my daunted physiognomy.
