To Those Who Sit in Dark Places – James Ogunjimi

To Those Who Sit in Dark Places – James Ogunjimi

To those who sit in dark places, To plot the downfall of the just. To those who gather with hidden faces, To cause nothing to the righteous but a fall. Posterity says it has not slept or forgotten; Nemesis has just one message: “I am coming.” To those who sit in high places, Looting and stealing collective resources without care. ... Read More »

Don’t Tell Me We’re Free – James Ogunjimi

Don’t Tell Me We’re Free – James Ogunjimi

Don’t judge us by the Smiling faces And conclude we are happy. Don’t use as examples just a few cases And say it’s reality. For Smiling faces do not mean the same as happy people, Neither does smooth talk translate to goodwill. Don’t see the big cars we drive And conclude we are rich. Don’t look at the clothes we ...

When The Cheer Begins – @Olladave

When the cheer begins When the lights are on When the music is loud The screams, oh mine And the flashing lights see paparazzi I'm fresh money- karma karzee When I am demi-god When the crowd finally meets me They think I am legend When they eventually touch me. Knowing that I can change many things As I represent my ... Read More »

Centenary Mark: Cries Of Abel – Dr. Soyombo Ayomikun

1.Dead & forgotten are becoming the days When as one we lived sharing countless goody trays Unheard of were words like ‘terrorists’ and ‘bombs’ Happily we survived though on morsels & crumbs Without fear from North to South we could easily travel Ours was a unity causing distant lands to marvel 2.Dead & forgotten are becoming the days When if ...

The Poet’s Mathematics By Ogundipe David Oluwasegun

The Poet’s Mathematics By Ogundipe David Oluwasegun

With his canoe, he paddled on the lone sand Deafening noise and yet no sound For years he awaited the sun’s appearance at night He grew so weak that he became a knight His greatest fear is that he is fearless Taking caution with him implies one is careless Those in his future died in the time past So slow ...

Tribute To Adebayo Ibitoye (Big Bamo) By Abiola Akintunde

Tribute To Adebayo Ibitoye (Big Bamo) By Abiola Akintunde

How could this happen and how did it happen, When did it happened and where did it happen, A life so dear has been lost, Only a body to mourn over. The sun as bright as it is, so much of a life giver, Has refused to continue to shine on this flower, Out of love, he was planted, With ... Read More »

Silence! Silence!! Silence!!! – A Poetic Tribute To Ifeoluwa Ojikutu by Oluwasegun Olufemi

It has no season It has no time It goes and comes as it wishes Sometimes like a thief in the night Always ready to strike Never minding the pain that follows Oh Death! Why are thou cruel? Thy sharp claws knows no one Not the old nor the young You care not about our grief You dig our hearts ... Read More »

TO THE SOUL THAT NEVER DIES Like a ray of light in the darkness of my heart she came forth Her words cut through the bricks I spent all my years building Going through our conversations over and over again The memories we shared…our stories….our scars Our pains…our happiness…we shared it all Nothing was held back. IFEOLUWA To my friend, ... Read More »

Before We Met – A short poem by Fatima Garba Aliyu

Before We Met – Fatima Garba Aliyu   Before we met, I was minding my own business, Before we met, I was a peaceful African Country, Before we met, I was termed the giant of Africa, Before we met, my elites were strong and united, Before we met, my people were hard-working, Before we met, transparency was what I adopted, ...

Lady Of The Niger Area – @olladave

Lady Of The Niger Area It will only take forever I bet To cast her off my mind The thought I will bind Cos she’s such a beauty to find. A used to be London slave Yet not a freeborn in her own enclave, The reason for her laughable laughter; Her sons and daughters. I sorrowfully sobbed when I knew ... Read More »

The Big Man By Vivian Beulah Igbokwe

The Big Man By Vivian Beulah Igbokwe

THE BIG MAN He parks his car at the village square And decides to take a stroll But at each corner he looks He hears their cries He sees their pain Their women bent over in pains And within he melts Or was he? Because he calls for a village meeting On the podium his big voice could be heard ... Read More »

SHE NEEDS A PEN NOT A PENIS By Bijimi Daniel Meindous

SHE NEEDS A PEN NOT A PENIS By Bijimi Daniel Meindous

She needs a pen not a penis. She needs a text book not a conjugal bed. She needs the classroom not the labour room. She is a child too young to have a child. Her biological composition is not ripe for womanhood. Her mentality not matured for parenthood. Her physical strength not strong for a house wife. She is a ... Read More »
