May I?

Poem By Babatunde Raimi

The intention is not to unclad you
With words so soothingly erotic
But if I may, as a boy Scout
Whose honour it is to do good
At least one good in a day, Scouts honour

Allow me, just this once to do this
For there is a spider in your bra
May I?
Did I just undress you poetically?
I'm sorry, that's how Poets roll!
Sometimes with obscene words
That just makes you drip...

Take Me Back To Yesterday

Take me back to yesterday
When holiness trumped prosperity
When churches won souls
Not the craze for numbers and money

And So It Happened

Alone in the sands
The fields was yellow
It lost its greenery
What could have happened?

Let Me Tell You About Africa

Oh! Africa!
Let me tell you
About my dearest Africa
The cradle of human civilization


My love for you,
Like a candle that doesn't loose its flame
Despite the breeze of trials blown.

If I Died Yesterday

Wait! Listen to me
Before you tighten the noose
Overdose or result to poisoning
Hear what I have to say
