Naira, Viva Africa

Denomination of the largest

at the lowest

 

Proudest citizen

gripen by the largest

corruption

 

Broad-day light

zombie in reverse

rehearse mutiny

 

Women are my inspiration,

desperation to acquire them all

like a precious jewel

 

Afrobeat taunts my

heartbeat to the melancholy

melodramatic beat of Fela

 

Visionary at the expense of aids

Smoke in my windpipe; my

intelligence is ripe

My rough edges smooth from

within

 

Marriage, an initiation with no

benefact. Tactical act to defy

simplicity of partnership

 

Marriage, love age like natural

substance with no expiry

 

 

Sky & Sea

photo-6

Nothing compares to the beauty of nature.

The beauty of the sea and the sky, all

wrapped together and given to us,

as a whole served on golden platter.

The sea subdued to our wishes, we sail

and harness all that is good.

The sky

ever changing

ever glorious

ever wonderful

ever magnificent.

Gracing us with its forever

and ever changing  display of art.

Even the strongest of heart cascades

at the sight of its sunset.

The sunrise warming even the coldest of soul.

Truly nothing surpasses the radiant beauty of nature,

I simply stand in awe admiration of your beauty as you

inspire me to write this
