HELP THE YOUTH, SAVE THE FUTURE: A POEM AND A NOTE

Image
In this our idle generation of whiners We have so many boastless doers Sheltering saplings in our forest Daily, their leaves they invest I see Olumide Olulu Holloway Lights word-candles on the way He prepares a word feast - a War Folly dies, Wisdom takes the fore I see Enigmatic Olumide Bisiriyu Do you know the Great One too By him I, many have been fed Blessed with word-bread

HER CHEERING VOICE ...for Spi

Image
Speaking at TEDx Ordinace Road Port Harcourt Three days on the road An epic journey of missed air birds Road snails in crawling mode Nights at motor parks 5-seaters and 18 too... Catcalls, chatter and barks Four audiences wowed A thousand minds weeded And a million odes -- earned(?) Through it all, one cheering voice From slumbering Zaria to hilly Jos And Jona's  Aso...a 'Go-on!' noise Now back at home 'Welcome' she says Here ends your roam... Thank you Spi! With students at Obafemi Awolowo University Arriving at the Obafemi Awolowo University gate to speak to students Vegetation along the Benin-Ore expressway
