FAULT FINDERS

To a fault finder A “How are you?” is a disgusting robbery “Where are you going?” is an uncalled for treason And “I love you” is a threat II To a fault finder A walk is an unprovoked slap A run is a murderous punch Holding hands is a fatal shot III To a fault […]

SKIN CLASSES

How we get our muses To fight unfair like hippopotamuses Because of skin classes …killing masses And shattering peaceful glasses …to cut through harmony is a horror Why all these blood on our hands? Ib Thoughts have fought Thoughts have poisoned Thoughts have destroyed And thoughts have killed II You watch thoughts killing humans like […]

AN OUTCAST

Ia Sparkly stars in close proximity …force eyes to close …with threats of blindness Even the intensity of a fire’s heat …determines the space between skins and their flames Higher souls suffer because their tougher spirits overpower all Causing the plight of most outcasts Ib He walks through the whispers …with unknown sources And tries […]

HOW DID UBUNTU FAIL?

The world, God’s gift, Was originally a dwelling for all Without demarcation Without ownership How humans heckled hostage And carved supremacy to draw lines called borders Made a funny video in my mind Sanity made it understandable Development made it beautiful Until ownership turned vindictive Murdering beings In a nice x word, clothing a devilish […]

MIND FARMS

The mind is a fertile land …in the head of every being Plant weeds of hurts …and reap seeds of hatred …with its shadow of cruelty …and spirit of harm Plant loving flowers with caring fragrance …and harvest nectar of faith …scent of love …beauty of tenderness …colours of trust …thorns of care …providing fences […]

GUILT ATTACKS

I know, …you know …that I know your blow Which is seeking the dark, to get me, your ‘foe’ …to make me kowtow So – …my magnanimous bow …scares when your closed eyelids go …to sleepland, in many an avenging arrow throw But what do I do? Your target line toe? II I neither bought […]

NOISE OVER NAUGHT

Wool travels through a tree In a pod which explodes to throw it out Lucky hands gather to refine Piece upon a piece into many elegant things Who is a bird to blame hands When it feeds on fruits Stays on trees and Paint its surrounding with its rear vomiting? II A hole can be […]

WAKE YOUR FOREFATHERS (Crazy Stanzas) EXCERPT

(FOR THOSE IN THE DIASPORA) If you fear overtakings Because the foundations of your birthings Shake like the grounds Being walked on by elephants uncountable Take no guns to bully the blacks Wake your forefathers Wake them from their accursed graves To send them back to their roots To make them the royals they were […]

EVEN ON A PLANT

Many cry of ingratitude Many fight against some attitude Many push in fortitude Almost all forget That even corn on the cob Are never on a level The pest corns are prized The stronger either bowing to bowel spewings Or helping fire to stand An all fair world, I know, will be a tree of […]

BURDEN OF HATE

If Kwaku Ananse’s fate Of always stirring hate Incurred many baits How many would’ve had that death date Or ended on his webby plate? II Feel the hate Wait and deflate The stone-like gate Of blocked freedom in loving fate Do this or dear mate, do mate The hatred until the hurts turn and hammer […]

HER DEMONIC SIDE

Hannah was a sweet girl Who couldn’t hurt a weak fly Until Jack took her flower And abandoned her leaf   No one saw anger developing claws In her, none saw revenge digging a hole in her What we saw was her lost frame in the sea of hate She first uprooted Jack’s roots and […]

SHOCKAHOLIC

My friend turned foe? I planted in sweat what can’t grow? Welcoming teeth fill my vision Hungry angry claws appear In front of my eyeless back? Not fair if you ask me Why can’t you be in front of my camera? Why hide in darkness If bitterness watered By the water from my stream grew […]

EATERS OF OURSELVES

Fishes convene for a solution on safety The president of anchovies narrates his loss His world is evaded each blessed day His subjects are killed in million folds   The herring president narrates his plight His country has alien eyes which watch their growth Many like prisoners are caught, killed and caged To please a […]

HAVE MENTIONED NO NAMES

The headache has become a brain tumour. Now it shows. I see, and you see Great abysmal monks in an abbot of a bush Effortfully breaking rules, adopting girls for pleasure Reeking of self-loath and awakening poignant fears In wombs and abdomens of earthly human makers All in the name of faith and selfish desires.

THE DAYS OF HEAVEN

  I am not neglecting you Not at all My mind happens to contain features, Features of those days. Yes, my body happens to be a feature among the many in days long gone, Days before my habitation. In my mind’s eye I see those days When minds were very pure As to allow the […]

NOT INSPIRED

Everywhere I look, Agony, Pain, Sadness, Fake-Love, and Crime that must be brought to book Everywhere I turn, I see Monsters with chiseled nail-like teeth, Teeth that shine and dance dangerously and intimidatingly in the dark To warn frightened cornered beings Of the electrifications and blood quenching that will soon consume the dark. I turn left, then right, forward, then backward And I […]
