Facts Of Chess | Naija Poets

Some fellows think that chess is for warring

Some think it’s for intellectual fellows

Of two fellows aiming at each other’s crown

In sixty four squares of black and white

In sixty four squares of eight ranks and file

Olening repertoirs are personified

Philidor defense, Reti attacks and

The Samisch variation are few to mention

Great Kasparov, Great Karpov, Great Korchnoi

Zugzwang, forks, en passant an gambits

Awkward words and lame terminologies

All these … Facts Of Chess | Naija Poets.

Love Without Sex


As a living witness

I can still confess

Of what is love without sex.


Is it loving so sexless

To keep righteous and sinless

Or what is love without sex?


Is it living in pretence

To maintain divine obedience

Or what is love without sex?


With me are total difference

Being a living witness

Of what is love without sex?


You can call this nonsense;

Say, I


Is living

Verse 4 to 2 of Chapter 22 in What?

Don’t tell me you can’t guess
do it

Praise the Lord
He saves me from mine
I call to the Lord my God
protects and saves me;
He’s my saviour
He defends me and keeps me
He protects me like a shield
with him I’m safe
My God, My protection
My strong fortress;
The Lord is my protector.

Now you know
or you still guessing?

Ways To Suddenly Become A Media News Reader

Hi! I’m GodKnows.

I’m glad to know you’re here to flow with this stream of information.
I’m writing about how you can suddenly become a media news reader. I said “suddenly” because I mean it.

To be a media news reader is a very awesome thing. Though, notions might differ from person to person but must people wish to become a media news reader because of its famous and iconic nature.

You might have wished for it but looking at yourself you realised it’s impossible due to one or two reasons. I’m here to remind you that “…everything is possible.”

Let me start by mentioning some of the false advices you might have received which have quenched the light of hope in you:
(a) you need the help of an influential person in your society.
(b) you need to bribe your way in.
(c) you need to have a strong spiritual backup because those in the system have it.
(d) you need to know someone or some people inside the media house you’re targetting.
(e) you need to get connected closely to the director or GM of the media house you’re targetting.

As lame as the points above can be, the should never be yardstick for your becoming or becoming not a media news reader.
Be assured that the points I’ll mention below will work for you in as much as you can hear almost perfectly, you can read perfectly, you can write what you read perfectly and you can speak moderately audible.

(i) A Credential In Mass Communications/Journalism.
If you have a certificate in mass communications or journalism you’re safe. If you have not, there are two things involved. It’s either you get certified (even a few months of diploma course in mass communications/journalism will be of help) or you become an apprentice; meaning, you get a professional media news reader to train you and show you the nitty-gritty.
I hope you can now see that certificate is a thing of little worry.

(ii) Tongue And Type.
You are now convinced that you can still be a media news reader. It time for you to start watching your tongue. Watch the words you dish out of the bedroom of your tongue. Pick a broom or a vacuum cleaner and begin expunging all anti-broadcasting words away your tongue: racial words, obscene words, abusive words, suicidal expressions, etc.
First impression lasts longer. Start cultivating the culture of decent dressing, perfect human and inter-personal relationship, and start being an acolyte of good behavior.

(iii) Selfcasting Before Broadcasting.
Read as many as possible news papers and mags aloud to yourself. Record what you’ve read and listen to yourself. Learn the right reading culture and posture. Imitate your favorite news reader as to aid your pronunciation. Download reading, recording and studio work applications that can help your learning process.
If you have the money, apply for training session in a private studio in your area.

(iv) Dare the Bull’s Horn.
It’s time to take the bull by the horn. Dare the undared. Face the fear. It’s time for you to make the move, start visiting the media house(s) you want to work with. Submit application letters when necessary and use word of mouth when necessary then you’ll realise the rest is as simple as ABC.

Please before you rush into action, I want you to know that your comment can be of help to someone so say something.

When Breastfeeding Is Not Enough


Everybody this’ my mother
and my mother’s a good motherer

When I was born
I perceived
the world I was born in
was full of struggling__
didn’t want to live
but my mother was a good motherer
would blend crayfish
pour it in my milk
mix it in my pap
so thick
she would clot my nostrils
forcefully gulping
I would be sounding:
Gborkudugbudu! Gborkudugbudu!!
Like a noisy pig

Any innocent passer-by would shout and say:
“Ah! You will kill this boy!”
but look at me today,
I’m a very big boy.

Samuel C. Enunwa aka samueldpoetry

NOTE: In the country where I was born, it is believed that after 7months of birth, nursing mother must be forcefully feeding their babies with sugarless pap to complement breastfeeding and baby-tin-foods so that their babies can be healthy, heavy, aggresive and strong.
The act of feeding the baby with the sugarless pap always look murderous. The baby’s head is turned upside down, the baby’s body is clamped between the mother’s thighs and the baby’s nose is blocked while the baby gasp for air, the mother will be pouring the pap into the baby’s mouth. The mother stops only when she feels the baby is satisfied.
