Blissful Ignorance.

Poem By samuel nze

My mother would hiss
At a youth smoking indian hemp
These days I know not
What children are up to
She would curse the world
And preach with gusto
No one who suckled at my breast
Would touch that smelly stuff
She knows not what my brothers do
And she enjoys the ignorance
These ones who suckled at her breast
Could they really be doing what they are?

As The Dawn Comes.

As the dawn comes
I remember what mama used to say
You are a man
Never you forget

A Kiss May Mean Anything

One must not take love wrongly
A kiss may mean anything
Emotion gets physical in different ways
If planted on the head


I am quarreling
With security;
Failing to believe
I am endangered.

A Man Should Have Respect

A man should have respect
His case may not accord him that,
Nor his situation
Yet he must feel self worth.

A Robber's Apologia

Dusk has arrived,
Cover for my game;
Vehemence is swifter,
It will be tonight.

Boys Are Simple And Short

Boys are simple and short
Girls are complex and long
But both are human beings -
How different!
