To hit hard like Djokovic
and Rafael Nadal won't pick it
you must be physically fit

Your handband must be Nike
Your headband must be Nike
Your sneakers must be Nike
Your playing jersey
Nike must mark it
so your games will flow easy.

If You Do Not Like Poetry

footsteps naijapoets

Thank you mymorningmeditations for the image above

You've taken the footsteps of your forefathers,
I give you kudos for that.

You've taken the footsteps
of your forefathers,
your forefathers
never saw a poem and not appreciated:
they knew poets
are born and not made,
they knew amateurs exit not
in the land of poetry
every work of poetry is an inspiration
from above, they loved poetry,
they cited poetry offhand
including that of Blake
William Shakespeare
beawouf was their song of rest
they wooed their girls
with flowing sonnets,
they knew poetry was
DIVINE
to dine; poets are the vessels
pouring out_
then what kin will you be
if you do not like poetry?
what will your forefathers speak of thee,
if messages
they send thee
through poetry
you do not always reply to it?

You Love Me And I Love You Too

romeo and juliet naijapoets

Image is from: Wikipedia's Romeo and Juliet

You love me and I love you
too
and this poem is the prove

So let's dance in public
like King David did
in the Bible

And let's dance in public
for old couples to see our dancing steps
and rediscover their lost love

And let's dance in public
for jealous ones to call us fools
believing our courtship will later crumble

The bottom-line is
You Love Me And I Love You Too.

Nigerian Presidential Election Rage

If internet was nigerian house of representative
and masses of my country
were members of the house

I would have witnessed the throwing of chairs
once again

I laughed all my ribs could contain
watching nigerians throw stones
of abuses
and counter-abuses
turning Facebook
and Twitter
and g+
to missile
for political war
on who deserves the Aso Rock

But why?
Why must nigerians place concerns
on Jonathan and Buhari
(our two presidential aspirant clowns)
with nothing good than code of embezzlement
to crack the remnant of nigerian safe.

A Thoroughly Rugged Poet

Please, pay no particular attention to this pun
this pun poem on
what works for me well might not work for you well
that's why many well-known eyes can't deny
I'm tough like thug of war and thoroughly rugged
over-rugged
I don't disturb the doctors
I medicate myself
with two felvin
two flagil
two penicillin
two chloroquine
and look me closely; I don't dare fear overdosing
I'm rugged
over-rugged
I don't pick my phone to phone the police
when some dumb circumstances are scaring me
chasing me down all around
wait, this' not a brainwash or thing I trained
or nurtured for
I'm tough and thoroughly rugged so
undisputable, I'm full of confusing disbelieves
believe me
those with no minds of their own
will believe an elephant can't hide behind a shrub
see deep!
look deeply!
search deep into your mind's eyes for
life's full of lenghty misteries like leaves on trees levitating.

The Skeleton I'm Hiding

naijapoets and Wikipedia skeleton

Half good, half bad being
will only make heaven

Cease inquiring why my skeleton is intact;
bother not the skeleton in my closet
I cherish hiding
It's my skeleton, the treasure I can't keep in
The Bank of Swiss

I am just as people say
I am saint as people see
I am living in loaf of chastity of atrocities
I can see you applaud behind me
through the sea of contempt
I am cruising your yatch of praises
like Wayne Huizenga
cliffhanger will one day fall
don't be surprised
bread and butter can goad to
obscene absurdity
my life is a tale by moonlight;
enjoy it when you wish,
heed the lessons,
make it a myth
and plant maize on me

I hope the squirrels
won't dig my skeleton out
but let it decay to grow your maize
and make you amazing.

Tortoise In Exile: 15 Important Questions To Ask




Tortoise in Exile (Heinemann Frontline) is a story that gives any adult reading it for the first time, the feel of his or her childhood when folktales were truly enjoyed. It's also a story that makes young people have the taste of folktale but in a contemporarily refined way.

Chio Enwonwu (the author) was so clever to remember the kids with such style of writing in this era where folklores and folktales are moving to extinction. Through proper imaginative thinking, he made tortoise and his wife the hero of the story compared to most folktales where tortoise is always the bad man.

    Dancing Crane

    crane bird

    With legs good for dancing
    let me fill you in
    I have legs of crane
    dancing gracefully to sweet melodies
    of sweet Nightingales

    When I dance for ladies
    they laugh their heart out and
    I pick it up at once and
    give it back to them on my knees.

    Maybe I should quit dancing.

    How Important Is Sex Education?

    rantdating in naijapoets

    IMAGE CREDIT: rantdating site

    How important is sex education?
    when sex educators award no certificate for it
    souls lacking sex education are no sex illiterates

    Oh, sweet sexing!
    As ancient as creation
    sex is a fashion that never goes out-of-date

    Lock two fools in a cage
    in two weeks they'll procreate
    sex is for both fool and sage
    the worst moron on earth
    can make a lady wet
    and moaning in sweat

    For sex is a lecture given by God
    to all living things before their births
    that is why
    you check through the gapes in your home
    wall-geckos are doing it;
    you open your window
    the goats are doing it;
    you cast your eyes on the electric pole
    the birds are doing it

    I keep wondering why some stupid fellows
    are still claiming to be pro.

    The Shepherd

    IMAGE CREDIT:1st-art-gallery site

    On a dark hillside
    A lone shepherd,
    Wrapped in his blanket,
    Hugged his knees,
    Dreamed into the night,
    A wisp of crescent moon,

    A sky full of stars,
    In his thought,
    He was asking,
    'Does my small fire
    Shine up to the stars?'

      The Ghost Affair 15 (The Parody Of Madonna Rhyming)

      In this Ghost town

      You and I

      walking down the hotel street

      like the Fifth Harmony

      in proximity

      just hold me tight Sugar Mommy

      tightly tightening my arms to thee

      and tighter we shall be

      strolling our reflections are in this darkness

      promiscuous bloodstream of us is

      strongly into this

      like Unapologetic Bitch

      Only Time can nullify this take button down

      as the sole key to Living For Love

      so hold me tightly Sugar Mommy

      experimenting my Body Rock

      while climbing through thy waterfall.

      Rap Intended

      I write things

      that make people offended

      and my poems

      are sweet, so rap intended

      and people follow

      everything I've said

      I carry Christ and cross

      above my head

      even if you shoot me

      I can't be dead

      Ain't mean you should try it

      don't go ahead

      if truly you love me

      come to my bed

      why should I beg ladies

      to turn naked?

      When my own lady'll

      love me till the end

      except I'm tired and

      dump her instead

      I'll never dump her

      she's my daily bread.

        My Heart Breaks (written by Lady Brumby)

        [slideshow-wpsp]




        Somewhere in the world
        A child is about to wake
        Only to die of hunger
        My heart breaks

        In the middle of a city
        A lone dark figure shakes
        No place to call their home
        My heart breaks

        A feline & her kittens
        Starving in some crates
        Abandoned by a monster
        My heart breaks

        A funeral's in procession
        I see the loved ones' face
        Memories fill my conscience
        My heart breaks

            When Will I Retire Poetry?

            [slideshow-wpsp]

            Some fishes asked me when will I retire.

            Poetry's an act of making martyr;

            Retirement will never be my attire

            I will never wear it anywhere

            Even when I'm old using staff as spare

            I'll write on walls I see everywhere

            Even when I'm old seeing only with left eye

            Such predicament will be a theme to inspire

            Even when I'm old sitting only by the fire

            I'll make old age a theme to inspire

            And fire higher and never retire

            And help me tell all the human quagmire

            My inspiration is burning a camp fire

            Burning so wild going haywire

            Like two naked intersected wire

            My inspiration is sparking and kindling it's fire

            Take a look at my inspiration is everywhere

            when I cough, it is there

            When I sneeze, it is there

            When I cry, it is there

            When I laugh, it is there

            When I walk, it is there

            When I stand, it is there

            When I rage at things that make me angry

            It is there

            When I hunger for things that make me happy

            It is there

            I can't murder the inspiration I've acquired

            In my medulla oblongata

            My ejaculanta

            In my hairs;

            Inspiration is everywhere.

                Katy Didden's Believe On Inspirations And Poem

                I am Katy Didden
                author of The Glacier's Wake

                I do believe in inspiration,
                in genius and
                all of that

                I think there are some people whose inner constitutions
                so suited to poetry
                they can rattle off poems more easily than most_
                note them.

                Thoughts move through their brains like
                notes through flutes
                usually not how it works for me

                My thoughts are more like bewildered mice
                in mazes
                yet, all hard-working poets
                can have fits of inspirations and
                stretches of genius.

                This image is from sidereel website

                There are so many things still hard to understand on earth

                Things like why cock crow
                when turkeys do not

                Why eagles fly
                when kiwis do not

                Why some men are blind
                or physically impaired
                when others do not

                Why monkeys like banana
                far more than men do

                Why deserts go so barren
                far more than swamps do

                Why earth waste time rotating
                when eyes cannot see it doing it

                And why should night be falling
                when the poor cannot spread their bowls outside
                and use it to bathe in the morning
                the same way
                they do to rainfall

                And why should ice-blocked rain
                suddenly begin rainning
                when people have no prove
                of refrigerator hiding somewhere in heaven

                And why
                and I just don’t know
                why the dark hood
                should be quoting the Bible

                And why people should believe
                angels must wear white
                and must have wings
                and must be beautiful
                like Peyton Sawyer of One Three Hill

                And I still don’t know why
                few prayers answered
                are not of those praying relentlessly
                on mountains. hills
                and rocky forests everyday.
