Sijo Poem

Korean poetic
written in memory of
Bruce Lee by his fan.


A goat is a domestic animal
and beating it receives a lot in time
beat it_ it will cry down to the town
in a twinkle, twinkle of an eye
it is back
to the scene
of the crime.
I compare it
to an arrogant wife.

Ken Saro Wiwa Inspired Parody

I realised,
the suffering of imprisonment
does equate
the suffering of poverty I see
when Ken Saro Wiwa said:

"It is not the leaking roof
Nor the singing mosquitoes
In the damp, wretched cell
It is not the clank of the key
As the warden locks you in..."

In my head
I became less scared of prison
to donate
memorialised verse as this in memory of
Ken Saro Wiwa the warrior of Ogoni

For the truth
emitted he, till this day,
no callous
and calumnious allegations
have erased it; inspite of

"The moral decrepitude
The mental ineptitude
The meat of dictators
Cowardice masking as obedience
Lurking in our denigrated souls"

But let no one chase me up and down with guns
for instabilities of this world
have already stabbed my belly more than one thousand times yet

"Dear friend, turns our free world
Into a dreary prison".

Samuel C. Enunwa aka samueldpoetry.

This poem is inspired by a poem written by Ken Saro Wiwa (10-10-1941 - 10-11-1995) titled: The True Prison.

How To Cure Envy

Hello! My friend.
Do not let it get to you
for what people are, is what they see.

Sweet people will call you sweet.

Bad people will call you bad.

Selfish people will call you greedy.

Foolish people will call you fool.

Jealous people will call you envy.

Righteous people will call you good.

And those people familiar with you
will soon call you whore.

And those people hungry for you
will soon call you bore.

But me, samueldpoetry
will always call you the poetry
the Lord has written

Just ignore them
and strive to live your life
the best you can.

Chris Abani

Naija blood
fuels his heart machine...

At home at shore of the Britons,
wherever he harbors

And I myself and me have
been versing and rhyming
since 1993

I wished I could live without parodies
yet, the tale of him will let me not
until I detonate the bombshell of this poem
for internet to be at peace

Chris Abani is
huge and hands...
mistake him not to
Notorious B.I.G

Sonnet 53 (in memory of William Shakespeare)

What is your substance, whereof are you made
That million of strange shadows on you tend?
Since every one, hath every one, one shade,
And you but one, can every shadow lend:
Describe Adonis and the counterfeit
Is poorly imitated after you
On Helen's cheek all art of beauty set
And you in Grecian tire are painted new:
Speak of the spring and foison of the year
The one doth shadow of your beauty show
The other as your bounty doth appear
And yew in every blessed shape we know
In external grace you have some parts
But you like none none you for constant heart.

A poem written by William Shakespeare, an English playwright and poet of the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries.

Where Have All The Old Cartoons Gone?

Where have all the old cartoon shows gone (Written By ILuvStefano99).

sometimes, when i'm alone.

i sit quietly in a room, with nothing on.

door closed, just me and my thoughts,

i start to wonder about something,

i start wondering,
where have all the old cartoon shows gone.

sometimes i wonder if cartoon characters
have their own little town.

everyone, heroes and villians live there in
peace and harmony.

Sometimes i wonder if my favorite cartoon character.

Maximillion Pegasus (yu-gi-oh) lives there too.

DINE WITH DEATH (a poem witten by Prince Adewale Oreshade)

The day the
Home is famished
May I not be at home

The day the
Road is famished
May I be at home

The day the
Earth is famished
May I be in clouds

The day the
Cloud is famished
May I be at home

Even if I were at home
When haunted home
Gets famished

If I were on road
The day rash road
Gets famished

If I were on shaky
Earth the day shaky
Earth gets famished

If I were in clouds
The day crying clouds
Get so famished

My blood shall not be
Spilt for I have dined
Death when no man did

I do not fear the
Hunger of death since
Death had dined with me

The child that cleans
Well his hands surely
Will dine with the elders

Oya has cleaned my hands
Well with its waters
And I have dined

With death at the
Crossroads filled with
Palm oil, coins and eggs

Palm oil: so that I
Shine all my long happy
life with success in me

Coins: so that my
Pockets shall cry
Of only riches

Eggs: so that my
Life shall give lives
So white and shelled

I do not fear the
Hunger of death since
Death had dined with me

How Good Is Your Haiku

Basho Matsuo
Here are three examples of the haiku of Basho Matsuo, the first great poet of haiku in the 1600s:

An old silent pond...

A frog jumps into the pond,

splash! Silence again.

Autumn moonlight—

a worm digs silently

into the chestnut.

Lightning flash—

what I thought were faces

are plumes of pampas grass.

You Girl Of Sixteen

You girl of sixteen

You sit beside me in this taxi

I'm handsome, giving you goosebumps

Hmm, I pity you

Too much of Holly... Nolly... Bollywood;

Look at what they've done to you

Hot Nigerian Ghetto

Where you moved into
but couldn’t sleep
couldn’t breath
and your door,
cars couldn’t get to
is called a ghetto.

Where valid stream
or flowing river is being defiled with
faeces and dirty dumps
and filthy cows are continuously mooing next door
and toilet water faeces are gushing crude behind windows
is called a ghetto.

So, tell me your definition isn’t so,
then I’ll tell you
“you live in a hot ghetto.”

In Love Is What I Am

If I were to be William Blake
I would have baked you
A poetic cake

If I were to be William Shakespeare
I would have written you
A sonnet
That will sustain this love
All through this lack

Emotionally rich and soft I am
Like Bill Gate of Microsoft
Because in love is what I am.

Two Lazy Men Under The Tree

September 18, 2014Adventure Two lazy men were sitting under the tree:
they were enjoying it. After all,
the sun is resting. In a twinkle of an eye
they saw the sun coming. In a blink of an eye
they saw the sun coming. And just like that
they saw the sun running closer to them. Closer to them,
scourging their legs
whipping their heads like animals
they shifted
the sun met them there
they shifted
the sun met them there
they shifted
the sun left them there and went away; Then they realised, the sun was working. Samuel C. Enunwa aka samueldpoetry

To Be Wise In Dealing With It


I know life can be sometimes

to worry about it
you might take your own life

to take it lightly
you might overcome it

to frustrate life back
you might take someone else's life
or shed so many blood
or destroy things
and people will tag you terrorist;

be wise in dealing with it.

Cheap Way To Cure Migraine

Eat blatterdock if fresh and plain
But eat the ones with petasin
And watch what enters your intestine
Could be anything I can't define
Having sit-ups up to thirty nine
Will stretch your neck, back and spine
Rich magnesium is rich norepinephrine
Poor norepinephrine will make stress begin
So take magnesium for rich norepinephrine
Then stay in the dark with no lighting
And thinking of poems with sweet rhyming
Like ticking and tocking goes the timing
Since white is snow what of liming
And all the squirrels do go climbing
Show me the man who hates rhyming
And I'll show you the man who loves lying
Surprisingly in no timing
In no timing this shall cure your migraine
Have I ascertained again and again
Mitochrondial boost is good for the brain
So buying CoQ10 can cure your migraine
Please, doubting Thomas with doubting brain
Go visit a specialist in your domain.
Samuel C. Enunwa 21-10-2012.

NOTE: Before using BLATTERDOCK, most especially, pregnant women or any one with heart challenges shou…

Life Is So Unbelievable

Some have food but cannot eat
Some can eat but have no food
Some have food and they can eat 

Life is so unbelievable

That is why many straight eyes
Selfishly think straight
But today I divert my visage

I pick my dictionary
And I see homos

Homo media
And homo human beings

I realise
Some are born 

And some are made
And some are nurtured to live homoly

If truly
You are born to be...
You're a friend of me
Shake my hands
I am straight 

I can't discriminate
And you have your life to live
Keep homonising
But hurt no one

If truly you
You are made to be...
You were born not homoly

Can change your ways
Break the shackles

In your life
Take the bulls by the horn
Opposite sex is sweet
And interesting;

For if boys fall in love with girls
And if girls fall in love with boys
Within it there is joy.

Why Did You Cut Our Tree?

the street I grew
was full of trees which
we used to play with worms
while mom hatch kolanuts out
its puds so painted green under
the kolanut tree easily with
knife. We used to lick
tangerine under its
tree and swing
guava tree
and did
play so
on or
trees in
our street
I revisited it last week
but O! Our beautiful tree-street
has so suddenly been detreed.

You've Divorced (part 1)

Divorce in Africa’s
like daybreaks
night comes;
so common these days

Men gain from it
women soon cope with it
knowingly unknowingly
the kids suffer the beat
a “bomfo” parenting
scavengers, robbery kids
I can bet it
they’re the ones on the street

But in the days of yore
when eyes could not see beyond the next door,
divorcing was a great abomination.

The Magic Words

I shut my eyes
I open it
oh guess who I see!
Is you
and it’s you I realise
will be the NIKKITA to kill my lonliness

You should be the ocean in my sky

You should be the sky in my sea

Let me SMS thee
Or PING thee with my Blackberry
For us to begin to build the feeling
That will make us to forever be

You have a sweet smile
so sweet like tangerine
and always I wanna see you smile for me,
oh please, my darling.

When I Met Belinda On Badoo

When I met Belinda on Badoo
she was still in her eighteen
while me was still twenty six
always calling
sweetly chatting
passion building
playing playing turning seriously
we must meet
we should meet
our first meeting
I was sitting talking sweetly
baby was seriously crying
she began breastfeeding the baby;
Belinda was a teenage mommy.

In Quest For Peace

In quest for peace,
yes, murder begins initiation
statues do not gamble
oozings must be tabled
garnishing the cake of worship
not sheep… missing souls,
o yes! obscene orgies
surging to altarly climax and come
Ah! Light has come now
clasping a dagger now
chasing brutally up and down now
please, sit down and listen
and listen to the sound,
the footsteps of the furious entity
helter-skelterly chased not
by the deeds of his hands
but the nemesis his sins deserve
in all deceit has given
while in quest for peace.

Reared, Fed, Nurtured And Educated


Father has tried his best.

Mother has played her part.

I must hustle now myself
and play my part
in doing the work of him that sent me
in this room and parlor appartment;
though not certain I’m doing the right thing

Rhetorical Question

What is dance with no waist?
What is smile with no lips?
What is me human being with no existing
you my lady?
O! What is life with no lovin’
heart of yours, my darlin’?

Open Grenade

In silence
I licence
my presence
in absence
of stress
to make sense
in power to break fence
of defences
of hearts and lens

What am I saying in essence?
I've let poetry make my presence
make sense.

Private Time (written by Amera)


The potty is the place to be
To read the news from ‘cross the sea
I think I like the pictures most
A plane crashed off the Iv'ry Coast

When you grow-up you’ll be like me
The potty is the place to be
I check the paper everyday
And try to aim so I don’t spray

Sometimes an odor I emit
It happens when I read this sh*t
The potty is the place to be
I concentrate and that’s the key

It seems I leak from every hole
When I sit on the toilet bowl
The paper makes me laugh and pee
The potty is the place to be

Eminem; The Surest!

I like the songs of this guy and follow him on twitter.
As a fan on youtube; I always watch him on tv.
One of my favorite is below:

-------CRIMINAL by Eminem---------
A lot of people ask me.. stupid fucking questions
A lot of people think that.. what I say on records
or what I talk about on a record, that I actually do in real life
or that I believe in it
Or if I say that, I wanna kill somebody, that..
I'm actually gonna do it
or that I believe in it
Well, shit.. if you believe that
then I'll kill you
You know why?
Cause I'm a

Orchid Of Love (by McNathan G. Danjuma)

Within you, I've found the perfect friend
Someone who I know will be there till the end
And they're not just thoughts I hope will fulfill
But thoughts that will stand forever still
Still as the wind on a hot summer's day
Still as your friendship I'll never betray
Still as the characters in a photograph
Still as your breathless, silent laugh
Within you, I've found the perfect friend
A mind that I can comprehend
A person I see is so much like me
A mutual relationship so carefree
Carefree as a child who questions the world
Carefree as a scream that goes unheard
Carefree as an adult blessed with a dream
Carefree as water flowing downstream
Within you, I've found the perfect friend
With whom I can be real, and never pretend
You've always been someone unique from the rest
You hold a piece of me no other can possess
Within you is reason to live every moment in time
Within you the life I want is always mine
Within you, I have the perfect friend
With you, I see myself till the very end.

Life Is A Picnic

Adult and teen
have no cause to be lean or thin.
Pour the whole tin of custard
be stirring it is thickening
my brother is picking beans
in the kitchen,
the kitchen is aromanizing boiling chicken.
Be not mistaken
I can't lose my eating appetite now

For within the white plate
mother is serving my meal
The manufacturer printed:

"Life is a picnic; so keep eating"

More than entertainment...
like revelation,
movies remain to me.

What else can remind me
of instabilities of this world?
If not this beautiful movie:
