A New Dawn

Poem By micheal udenyi

Changes here and there
Eve no longer in her golden garden
accompanied by Adam now lives here
her breasts now pulpy she's no longer a maiden

Poor Lazarus is no longer at the richman's gate
haven cried so much now in heaven with no more cries
the richman in hell now begs to mitigate
his riches left behind is of no use as now he dies

Sacred libation drowned in holy water
our locution is guided by the Bible
angered is our hungry goddess of water
deserts now forest the proud is humble

The gods suddenly are banned
the chief priests are sent on exile
Amadioha's shrine is laid desolate and
the albinish man now sends us misile

Our land marks are taaken
by our foes and we are left with nothing to manage
we are misruled and forsaken
and left to be free in bondage

The Ichie, Igwe, and the Ozor title
are now a thing of mockry
they are left with value less than little
consigned for the later is the mastry

The reverened misorgynist has gained his libido
a problem of mind boggling complexity
the landlord is a tennant in his own land, thur!
i merely in fortitude watch the laxity

Our locution left only for the aged
our ripe virgins are wildly in chase of the latter day
in lassitude i rage but now resigned to guage
truely, I have seen a will not guarrantee a way

A Cry For Help

the evils that are done in this country
are too great for the ears alone to hear
they are too much for the eyes alone to see
for the those who promised to lead us

Farewell To Love

I gave up all i had
just for me to be heard
but lacked the boldness
to fix the bait to the hook

Nigeria's Call Obey

From within she called out my name
the more she screamed, it seemed she sunk
no one, not even me to pull her up
she called on, but I was too deaf t o hear

Daddy Wasn'T There

when i was catechised
when i was bowdlerised
when i was circumcised
when i was baptised

Endless Love

Days have passed
since i left you
but it is as fresh as yesterday
you will be in my heart

End Of Me

Just because i am born of a woman
my life is but for a few days
but my world is surrounded by troubles
i rise gloriously like a flower at dawn
