ADANNA

Rarely touch the ground, Does not look into one’s face, Stays mute in all discourse, Sneeks in and out, From newspaper to her monitor, Gently treading not to cross anyone’s path. Definitely, you yell in other fora, Don’t be like a silenced girl. Told to keep her thoughts, Accepting all …

PUT

Put on a good listening habit, Put behind the past, Put on a new attitude, Put on the best to stand out, Put yourself in the best position, Put on the best strategy of waiting on the LORD, Put off shining before you time, Pick up your entitlement. (c)Olutayo IRAN-TIOLA, Lagos, Nigeria

GOOD HEALTH

May the skin live long in clothes, May the skin not be hidden for rashes. May the head stay well on the neck, May the head not heave in aches. May the mind be sound in the body, May the mind not be insane on earth.  May the internal organs be in peace,May they not …

THE EGG BEARS IT

The egg bears it, Preparatory to lunch, they egg we want, bathing to go for daily bread, returning to have talkie-talkie missing. 3 talkie-talkie with four chips, Disappering in ajiffy, perfect job, no trace,Spoke with folks earlier,not reachable is the next slang,Thank God they were creditless,and the wisdom of address book,talkie-talkie missing. Endless search for the missing …

LISTEN WELL

Who is wise? Let him come, Wisdom beckons at him. Who can stand? Stand not to hear this, You can’t be knowledgeable, If this eludes you. Learn from past experiences,Have you ever experienced it?Learn from them,They know it,Let them narrate their ordeal,Then you will be wise,Life will be much pleasant for you,Listen! Listen well!

OUR VOICES MUST MATTER!

A cause for clothing, Akin to the goitre in the tummy, Boil on the penal gland, The hairy armpit on the shoulders. Political jobbers, Displaying their greed, Politicking is over, Pocketicizing is the next order. Another parable of without shoes, A parable of without clothes, The abundance of robes, That …

ONCE!

In the history of existence,You come but once,In your role in the community,You come but once,Forcefully, calmly,You come but once,Good leader or not,You come but once,Remarkable feats while here,You come but once,All knowing while here,You come but once,Six feet is where you are forever kept!You have come but once! Gone …

GOLD CUM MIRROR

Precious metal, Sought with the heart, Possessed protectively, God bestowed everyone with it, Be grateful for your gold! Some have crude gold Some have refined gold, All that glitters ain’t gold But not like a mother. It’s not revered, Copious examples from the mirror, Thinking of your errors; see the …

A CRY FOR FUEL

Fellow Nigerians, Let’s sing the song of solidarity With one another,Our leaders perpetual excuse, The last resort of the common man, Is on a race, Racing from the mouth of marketers, Racing from the hands of consumers, Racing from the global community, Racing continually. For nations that do not have …
