The Son Of Egbe*

Poem By Adeyemi Joshua

The Son Of Egbe*

The cock shall not crow,
Moo shall not the cow.
The dog shall not bark,
Mew, will not the cat hark.
The bird shall not sing,
Croak will not the toad's lips.

The cock shall bark,
The cow shall rhythm lack.
The dog shall croak,
And in crow will the cat's voice crack
Like an egg made off time-
Escaping mother's purse before time.
The bird shall crow,
All in absurdites will grow.

When the cock shall bark,
And the cow in rhythm lack.
When the dog croak,
And the voice of the cat in crow crack.
When the bird shall bleet and crow
And all absurdities did glow.

Then go into the innermost,
Save thy head beneath the hosts.

For the advent of the son of Perdition,
Commemorate such disruption.

Callous Harmattan Clutched

bounty body blushing
heaving hoisted hankering
under tainted touch
callous harmattan clutched


Poetry is like a hook that apprehends deflowered fishes with its varying wits. The hook is thrown into the ocean of the socitey and it caught informations that inspires the souls to keep writing. Poetry is a garment of many colours that no one is yet to distinguish the type of its colour he's putting on. It takes time, dedication and observation to ascertain the type because these are the regalia of poetry.

She is always on silk
Endowed in glittering stones.

Rusty Year Retiring

weary waves whooshing
hoisted horizons hankering
dark dances drooling
felon fate fostering

Bursting Busty Bruise

waning wits smirked
vying voluptuous verge
meagre mood metamorphose
saucy spell's sauce
