WOMEN, DEMAND RESPECT!

Image
This photo is a disgrace... I'm galled by the breathing disgrace It may look like a joke but it's pure disgrace! Disgrace to the woman that turned a footstool Disgrace to the idiots that took a woman as a footstool Disgrace to the cameraman that that preserved the disgrace A disgrace to every one of us that sees nothing wrong in the disgrace I feel like giving each of them at least one slap.

MOTHER, MY LOVE, MY LIFE

Image
It's my birthday... I know it I'm ageing inside... I can feel it But would this day have even been If Mother had wrapped me for the bin? Words fail me to paint Mother I open my mouth, but only stutter I try to write, but this plain paper Bears only a growing blot hours later God bless the womb I habited And the door I 'cryingly' exited God bless those nipples I suckled And those arms in which I snuggled Mother, you are that is and always will be

Another year, another bend Where is the end? Another year, a climbing hope Where is the slope? Another year, sweat on my breast Where is the rest? My hands are ready My legs are steady My head's not heady My eyes not beady Bring on the new year I take it on with no fear...

CHRISTMAS BELL, DYING KNELLS

Christmas bells Dying knells Evil’s done Can’t tell Living hell Angry one Christmas bells Dying knells Open shops Wistful thoughts Fiery tots Frothy cups Christmas bells Dying knells Lady hums Christmas eve Folded sleeves Devil’s bum Christmas bells Dying knells Carol voice Lady smiles Devil wiles Evil choice Christmas bells Dying knells

NOLEEN (a birthday doggerel)

Image
Noble citizens of our land Out with drums and trumpets Let our voices vibrate the sands Ears must twinge until the sun sets Echo it to the corners of the universe: "Noleen the queen was on this day born!" ... the birds are singing, for you, a melody the waves' too are lapping an eulogy the wind is whistling a hearty song the leaves are clapping along ... Cut the cake, pour sweet wine Merry! Today is yours, shine Nature celebrates your birth For yours is a noble heart Happy Birthday Noleen! Mother of many...

LOVE A WOMAN THIS XMAS

Image
To be a real man You must love a woman To love a woman You must be a real man ~ @BrainyPoet How will you show love to a Woman this XMAS? I will send money to my mother, my sister and my girlfriend. I will give a female beggar some tangible alm. I will pay transport fare for at least 10 aged women before Jan 1. I will say something kind to at least 10 #women I am not related to. I will forgive my girlfriend's offences without much fuss. You?

FORBIDDEN

Image
F orbidden to live. O rdered never to leave. R estricted to spaceless space. B ricked into claustrophobic craze. I n a world where ambition murders, D eath is the shield - why even bother? D ie now, or die later... clay remains clay! E veryone will suck her breasts someday. N ow, who’ll say to Death “you are forbidden”?

IMPOSSIBLE

Image
I tasted death’s stew, M ade merry with his brew, P oured my blood as libation, O ffered my flesh without emotion, S poke with the souls of the undead, S oftly, till they fled, all filled with dread... I n the dark shallowness of my thoughts, B lood, my blood, is drunk in one-gulp tots, L et no one say its impossible… to taste death, E njoy its peace, yet draw in sweet mortal breath.

We will not weep Though our pain is deep For even as you journey beyond Intact remains the connecting bond

IN MY COUNTRY

Image
In my country... Ministers need bullet proof cars Made with particles from the stars President gets drunk on his birthday And forgets his speech the following day In my country... Student scramble for admission And scramble even more for the graduation Gown is only hoped for, everyday more elusive ASUU strikes, government hisses, students get apprehensive In my country... Refineries are renovated with billions And sold to their bloated cronies for millions Electricity comes, briefer than rainstorm lightning One moment here, next, gone...Ah!, So disheartening!
