A Sudden Backslide

I took my wrapper and went to sleep
And woke and checked the date

It was 2006
In pre-degree
In my room playing chess with Kenny

So I got angry
For I wanted to move forward
Not to go back to where I was before

Then I took my wrapper again and went to sleep
And woke and checked the date

It was 1995
In grammar school
On the green field
Playing football with my friend, Akomachie

So I got angry
For I wanted to move forward
Not to go back to where I was before

I still took the wrapper and went to sleep
And woke and checked the date

It was 1992
In primary school
Learning English
And teacher was Mrs. Ehumadu

So I got angry
For I wanted to move forward
Not to go back to where I was before

Thats why I took the wrapper again and went to sleep
And woke and checked the date

It was 1983
On a mackintosh
Crying
While waiting for mother to feed me NAN

So I got angry
For I wanted to move forward
Not to go back to where I was before

I took my wrapper with the feeling of frustration
And went to sleep

God began to call my name
I was afraid to wake again
So I started fake-snoring
God said:
“Wake up and don’t be scared!
You have slept so deep
That was why you were dreaming
So wake up to the real world!
And wake up to the future!!”

Im Begining to understand

Mr. Untouchable
I’m begining to understand
Your trade by barter
Which means:
“Give me your single vote
And I’ll give you bundle of things
(Starving,bombing,strike, economic meltdown, political unrest, abnormal bills from the legislatives …etc)”

Mr. Untouchable
Your the head of this family where
Many eyes are red, celebration of tears,
Empty bellies go to bed since common biscuit-bones are dare
Yet you shave your beards and care
About nothing else than to fly your private jet

Your the head of the street where
As at the end of November
Baloons and festive lights are
Yet to be hanging everywhere
And parents are yet to be buying
Shirt and dress
And kids are yet to be singing
Jingle Bells
Which has never happened before

If not that Islam and Christainity
Have made poor people so religious

The cook cooking for you
Would have set you on fire while you sleep
And the driver driving you
Would have run you into an inflammable vehicle
And the dude holding umbrella behind you
Would have stabbed in the back the you’ve done to us
For you to die like a fool

And if not that Islam and Christainity
Have made poor people so religious

I would have come to the Aso
And pick the rock
And stone you to death
For you to die and journey down
To the land of the dead
Where you’ll meet my parents
And grandparents and great grandparents
Who will lock your shirt
And bite your body to post-death
To show you how bad your leadership
Has suffered their son

And now that my mind I have spoken
The next thing
Is to find my body missing.

There are so many things still hard to understand on earth

Blind Man

There are so many things stil hard to understand on earth

Things like why cock crow
While turkeys do not

Why eagles fly
While kiwis do not

Why some men are blind
Or physically impaired
While others do not

English: Saimiri sciureus. Fran├žais : Saimiri ...

Why monkeys like banana
Far more than men do

Why deserts go barren all the time
Far more than swamps do

A View of Earth from Saturn

Why earth waste time rotating
When eyes cannot see it

And why should night be falling
When the poor cannot spread their bowls outside
And use it to bath in the morning
The same way
They do to the rainfall

And why should ice-blocked rain
Suddenly be rainning
When people have no prove
There’s a refrigerator somewhere in heaven

And why
And I just don’t know
Why the dark hood
Should be quoting the Bible

Peyton's hair and wardrobe evolution: Typical ...

And why people should believe
Angels must wear white
And must have wings
And be beautiful
Like Peyton Sawyer of One Three Hill

And I still don’t understand why
Few prayers that are answered
Are not of those praying relentlessly
On mountains
And rocky forests everyday.

Keep it for thy family

If you smoke
Smoke only a stick
Of St.Morris

If you drink
Drink only a bottle
Of Heineken

If you gamble
Gamble only 2-sure
Of Lotto
And waste no more money
On 3-direct

And if you …adultry
Commit it only with one feminine
Always going one round
And waste no more money
On multiple comcubine

And reserve the rest
Of thy resources and strength
For thy wife to enjoy
Thy body

And thy kids to enjoy
Thy money
In Mr. Biggs
For them to realise they
Have a daddy
Who knows the worth of his kids.

Self Made Man

A river that forgets its source of water
Shall suddenly dry

A dictionary that forgets its source of knowledge
Shall suddenly land in the waste bin

Any he or she who forgets his or her source elevation
Shall suddenly fall down to nothing

No such thing
As self-made-man
So always remember the he or she or they
Who made you who you portray.

GHOST AFFAIR 9 (Jolie tell me the truth)

Angelina jolie

Jolie, tell me the truth
In your dream
Did the skeleton with a long finger print
Scratch your back yet?

Cover of "Let's Scare Jessica to Death"

Did the scene look
Scary like
The scene in the movie:
Let’s Scare Jessica to Death?

English: Henry Fuseli - Hamlet and his father'...

And finally
Did the scary shivering skeleton
Said to you
with a loud cracky horrible polyphonic-like voice:
“Jolie! You are now an immortal for real!”

If yes,
Then shake me
With a high five
For you have helped
An inquisitive troubled soul
Wandering in a ghost affair.
