Broken Class

Poem By Adaobi Chiemelu

Class upon class
Meet at an edge
Discuss briefings from a steady hand cut ledge
What happens in class
Stays in class
No anthem is written however inmates silently pledge

When an eye bats quicker than the other
It is enough reason the questions they wedge
Secession howbeit the tumour is inevitable this consequence to guage

Class after class after class
Glad to keep the train moving in class
More drum rolling and you'll see
A perfect definition of solidarity.

Baa Baa Black Sheep




My opinion is in a messy box
It used to follow a sect of duck-trines in that same box
Duck-trines groomed in the form of a spider
It was caught in the spider's web which wilt wider



He's sitting there like an open book, waiting for me to read him
A part of him poking out, waiting for me to search him

Early To Bed

Early to bed

I'm seeking sleep eagerly
Cause I want to have my color when I wake up in the morning

Sweet Motherhood

Sweet motherhood 1

It's a special delight talking about her children
About the things they said and the way they had said the things they said
