Wilt Thou Be Made Whole?

Poem By samuel nze

Jesus looks at Nigeria
As once he beheld the leper
He asks the historic quiz
Wilt thou be made whole?

The pharisees are the government
Sneering at this saviour
You must not cure a man
On Sabbath day.

Sabbath is everyday in Nigeria
We do not stretch our hands
No healing can take place
It is hard work.

But he still asks,
Coaxes with countless entreaties
Wilt thou be made whole?

Gloomy import-based economy
One commodity alone for sale
Social injustice the livelong day -
And you would not be made whole?

The leper stretched forth his hand
And received his healing
But the pharisees withdrew to plan
To kill Jesus.

We keep our disease covered
Who cares for healing!
Jesus withdraws
To bemoan our government.

Our pharisees have the alternative
We will not be made whole
We will rather go on
The way we are.

As the dawn comes
I remember what mama used to say
You are a man
Never you forget

A Kiss May Mean Anything

One must not take love wrongly
A kiss may mean anything
Emotion gets physical in different ways
If planted on the head


I am quarreling
With security;
Failing to believe
I am endangered.

A Man Should Have Respect

A man should have respect
His case may not accord him that,
Nor his situation
Yet he must feel self worth.

Dusk has arrived,
Cover for my game;
Vehemence is swifter,
It will be tonight.

Boys are simple and short
Girls are complex and long
But both are human beings -
How different!
