Esesa

Poem By Victor Okechukwu Anyaegbuna

On the throne of destiny
he sprawled like a spider
Weaving the nest of nemesis;
Circled by hungry beaks
That pecked walls
Guarded by hungry wolves
Where Bufalos grazed surrounded by hungry lions

Stride denied royalty
The crown shamed amazons
That poised to create waves
unbecoming arrogance denied

Atoned (In Memory Of Papa)

You have dotted the multihued skies
With your credible finite goodness;
You have destroyed ancestral curses
And earned us wholesome splendid victories

Those We Voted

Those that we trusted most,
And elected by our vote
Dealt devastating blows
That stunned our minds

Dele's Fours

And on Dele’s laps it exploded
Where angels sat, rested and played.
He fell, his legs dangled
Trailed only by his own blood.

Violins Night

Only last night
I took a solitary walk along the lane of tears.
I saw lovers gamble in lonely corners.
The fresh cool night breeze

Bats

Dirty grey old rags
hanging loose
on tree tops and ceilings,
numb and lifeless,

Ogbuagu (Dedicated To Professor Frank Onukwuli, Ochubalu Enyi Zogbue Agu N'Okodu)

I was chasing a small elephant,
Big as it was, yet active as an ant,
In Mother Nature's awesome wild.
It was fast, yet sublime and mild.
