My Alma Mater: Creative Minds Foundation


Even as the moon rides by the night
And the sun travels by the day
Your intention to excel never dashes away
And it is forever a great delight

A Charmed Night



The sun sets from superior summit
And night steadily stole in
Like the toughened criminals back to work
Into the boundaries of the busy city

Fair Weather Friend



All things I gave you faithful fan
And set for you a wholly caravan
But you became a stingy lad
Who never wanted to say he had

New Year Rain



It started firstly the clouds rolling in clusters
Causing darkness to overcome daylight
The wind arrived in a frankly filthy mood
Causing a stir and havoc to a devoid earth

A Season without Remorse



I witnessed as you carelessly cracked lips
Making the gardens wither
Dust penetrating into every nook and corner
Flowers turning pale, fertile soil getting hard

Moonlight Guest



Just by the late hour of the night
I see a shadow by me so bright
He sticks around me like glue
Moves to and fro just as I do
He shoots and grows taller like a rubber-tree
Or shorter, the height no man could be

Songs of the Righteous Man



I was born in hardship
But thanks to God for seeing me through
I was never born great
But achieved greatness full of weight

To Gani (Human Rights Activist)



The traveller was back to the shore
Only to meet his ferry gliding away
Helped by the changes of the tide
And an ocean tears of bitterness
That accumulated while he was away

The Bride


Decades after, the suitors still come to sway
Approaching with enthusiasm and murderous love
With brim confidence to lure her away
Yet show little for the legitimates to approve
