Corruption In Power

Poem By Eziudo Michael Nwachukwu

Like fish in the water we all are
Shall we deny drinking this sweet water
When I couldn't lie why then did I entwine myself
I enunciate in all I say that you misinterpret non
As we lay our beds so we all lie on them
We've all become victims of the thorns and norm

Let the honest ones show their pedantry
This weapon of mass destruction is epicene in nature
Greed is never associated with sex or tribe
And so its effect and produce and lessons
From outside evil fingers point
They play same game as we but with wisdom
But ours stink, even from a distance

We put him in charge, all guilty as charged yet cry of his
Together in corruption we all have membership
Knowing though it's a short cut to hell yet we profess
its lordship
And every nook and crany this termite has nibbled up
With the proclamation of our best antitermite we are
laughed at
As our conscious hypocrisy boomerangs
And our suicide mission brings death to face us
Yet we aren't tired of drinking this loving poison
We are addicted to eat even as it nibs us in the bud

Remember Who I Should Be

I am the womb that gave you life
The shield from harshness from uncanny uncertain destination
And you had to breathe by my breath
And bone up by my bones

Gone Too Soon

You came at dawn
With the zeal and energy of a young day
Promising and hoping all impossibilities to win
The world seemed a cascade of labyrinth decoy

You're My Lullaby

You are the song that I sing
Then when my heart get excited at mere promises
When all roads lead to the distance ever longed for
When the sun walks away


You are my dawn
My early morning wine
The sweet smell of the promising morning
No other rose is pearly enough to give the stress if I must choose between you and one


Take me now that I'm available for you to see
Otherwise I'd fly like a bird with wings flapped freely
Have me now that you own me
Otherwise the trees won't sense my perch for all they'd stay

Marriage Of My Dreams

I dream of a marriage where my wife is me, is my friend and my partner, more like she is my skin

I dream of a marriage where the meeting that my wife is present is no longer in need of my presence because they'll get the same effect
