Ikemezue Ononye Wrote A Poem Titled Birds

BIRDS
Birds are pleasant creatures with colourful
bodies and a beautiful voices.
Birds come in different sizes;
some are little while some are big.
Soaring at the highest point of earth
and singing like every little song
is in their little throat.

Birds, some are very friendly while some are scary,
birds are

Felix!

Are you not the same boy
who swings on guava tree?

Are you not the same boy
who swims the shallow stream?

Are you not the same boy
who rolls a tubeless tyre down the street?

Or the same boy
who loves to wrestle with friends,
playing hide and seek in dilapidated bakery,
singing loudly,
gambling with money on PlayStation2…
Are you not the same boy?

O Jesus! Reprimand le diable!
For Felix is still a boy of age 10

Everyone calls him Jumong
for acting Jumong

Acoustic Poem For Nigeria



 

Nigeria, the black bleaching queen!

I heard you speak many languages

Graceous queen, how's the journey

Ever since the orthopedists at Privatization clinic

Reconstructed your muscles and bones?

I heard you still miss NEPA, NITEL

And other good bones taken from thee.

Enjoyments and peace.

Mick Delap Wrote The Plights Of Nigerian Poetry


IMAGE FROM: Africansearch.org

Even when we cry with our eyes full of tears, we can still see things.

The scripture says: my people perish because they lack knowledge. If such is the plight of Nigerian poets, it would have been better but Nigerian poets have the needed knowledge and they know the truth but refuse to let it set them free.

Nigeria is one among the developing nations of the world. A fact none can dispute but why should such affect the right recognition of Nigerian contemporary literature? Why should such affect the status of Nigerian contemporary poetry amidst the world poetry?

UK poets are well recognized (both classic

If I Could Picnic Up Above


Image from4-designer web

Some wishes are within reach
some are castles in the air;
so I lay down this wish of mine
amidst the petals of poetry

Oh! I wish
I could picnic up above
I'll pick the rainbow
to make muffler round my neck
visiting the eighty eight
regions of the sky

With my square and compass
I'll measure and calculate
the indigo desert
people call the sky

I'll make my tent_
mash tomato and pepper
to serve my rice and beans

Life Is Not Worth Hyping




Life is not worth hyping...
Listen fish,
expectation is not what it is
like cheap Jago milk;
large life saving nutrients
can be found in poor living
that's why
angels are in slums as uglies are in crowns

Life can be clowning at times...
situations that bring you frowns can
later bring you smiles.
Anything can happen,
have you not seen
a pig licking pretty mango?

Is This Your Pastor?


Who are those saying I’m a fool?
Are they men of this country?
So am I
Are they men of this city?
So am I
Are they servants of Christ,
Of Jesus Christ?
So am I
I sound like a madman_ but I am better than them (the wise)
I’ve worked much harder
I’ve been in prison more times
I’ve been beaten more times
I’ve been near death more times
Five times
I was given thirty nine strokes of cane
Three times
I’ve been beaten outside my country
I’ve been stoned
I’ve been trapped
I’ve been in transport wreck
I’ve been stranded
I’ve been in danger of flood
In danger of robbers
In danger of fellow country men

All this wars I've walked myself through
Is a prove I'm a genuine pasterA true man of God
I've been in danger of unbelievers
And that of fellow Christians
In danger of cities
In danger of forests
In danger on seas
In danger of false friends
I’ve worked, I have toiled
I’ve gone without sleep
I’ve been in hunger
I’ve been in thirst
I’ve lacked food, I have lacked shelter,
I’ve lacked clothing
Not to mention other things
And day by day
I see myself under pressure
My concern is for all
The fellowship and the church
When someone is weak, I feel weak
When someone is pained, I feel pained
When someone has sinned, I feel concerned
And when I boast, I boast to show things of my weakness
I do not swear
God knows
I lie not
But if all that is mentioned
You cannot find in your pastor
Then you should find a different church.

Christian Beings Are Possessed



Christian beings aren't human beings
said the first Peter two verse nine.
Oh! They are the chosen generation
their priesthood hold a Christ affiliation.

Christian beings aren't human beings
they may wear the human looks_ fine,
and enjoy the fine earth's constellations;
their call to light stay the confirmation.

Christian beings are possessed
with Christ identity
and anyone may say:
"Oh, what ridiculous resolutions men take
when possessed with fear!"
Oh, yes!
I'm glad we are.

Some Righteous Critics I Knew



When I said
poetry and poetics are
the sure apparatus for social interaction
between nerds

My literary nephews and niece
never complained
but some righteous critics I knew
filled their brains with
pagan thoughts towards me
planning to wet my parapet
with plenty buckets of petrol
burning me to powdery ashes
to take my breath

When I said
with poem to people that
pure nerdy association propagates geniuses
like sheep herds

My literary nephews and niece
never complained
but some righteous critics I knew
called me psychopath
so, quickly bring me
Arnold Sameroff's
Handbook of Developmental Psychopathology
to differentiate
true psychology from psychobabbling
I must
defend myself
against these psycho-fanatic psychiatrists
calling me psycho
planning to tie me to sick bed
in their psycho ward somewhere
because I said...

You're Divorced








Divorce is
better than love captivity 

You're divorced,
a good choice 

You're divorced
and now you're dating your pastor 

I have a lot to pour
out from the bottom of my bowels
but I'm not born to the shore of this world
to judge anyone;
God knows more... 

No leaf shall fall
without the consent of the Lord.
