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

A Tribute to Dagrin

DAGRIN, a leader in entertainment gone so soon
From mother earth to the dark grave room
Emotions were betrayed we never thought you’ll depart
But we‘ve conclude to admit you’ve played your part

The Take Off

The plane roars steadily signalling its departure
Standing on the tarmac ready to take off
Anxious passengers sat silently, hearts in their mouth
As the waving flags descends from mobile waving hands

September 03, 2012


Between the lush green thick walled vegetation
And the tall pillars dotting round the forest
The murmuring movement of the protesting shrubs
Telegraphs the alarming arriving practical steps of an elephant

Dregs of the Society

As the world turns grey and famished
Cordiality has been neglected equally banished
Evil cults have gradually taken over with maturity
With violence to assert their ill-gotten authority

The Departure

In the still of the sleepless night
After the sun went behind the sky
And the horizon clear of disturbances
With only the soft whispers of the dead heard
The general lay hidden in his tent dreaming

Rumble Beneath The Clouds

The face got cracked into the terrain
With a grin, growling and trembling
The charm has clout the scene
Hurling a peril as people raced about violently

Day Break

After a long pause from the tired sun
The moon eases hastily away and gently
The rays of the sun shine unto the earth
Scorching through the hills, towns and villages

A Captain's Wish

I am a prisoner of war
Captured in the course of fighting for my land
So sad is it that I may not be back
To fulfil my pledge of redeeming Africa’s pride

The Grave Beneath

When the quake event comes to pass
Then will no mortal soul present
Witness the end or broadcast
Falsehood concerning its eruption

June 09, 2012


They are still hot on our heels
Determined to poison our conscience
As they sought for our loopholes
Into the deeper part of our flesh

The Hangman

It shall to nobody be a surprise
That one day I, the hangman shall also die
In my hands the prisoners cry
Though I hate none in despise

My Mother

When times of glory were dead and gone
And days of perilous challenges are on
Who stood by me from dusk to dawn?
And never had me toil in the scorching sun


Two ladies were caught up in the loudest of talks
Like the Agbor dancer entangled in the maze of music
Little did they care to know what happens around them
Or what transpires to call for their immediate attention

The Blind Night Bats

When dead dusk comes and all’s asleep
And the lamp lights have been taken off
The bats comes out from their hiding place
And tear around the sky in groups

May 10, 2012

The Little Bird

The pretty quick and little bird
Wakes every morning to perch on my shed
And with her little voice she sings
Joy and happiness to me she brings

Center of Excellence

The land of divine light bubbling with wealth
The homeland of commerce
The land of integrity
Accepting men of all races and cultures

As School Resumes

Dancing and playing
Has abruptly been stopped
Sorrow, depression now on children’s faces
As a new session begins

A Father To His Son III

See your future as bright as a sun
Oh! You my dear only son
Don’t accept in you cultism
And get addicted to it like those practicing atheism

A Father To His Son II

Listen attentively to your elders
To thread in the right part of life
Study the uneventful past
To write a better future

A Father To His Son I

Don’t make a name to be printed on sands
You would always attract the dust
When you make your mark in life
You would always attract erasers
