THE FAIR NATION – VAGIMAN (CHAPTER I)

Abiola stands on the Mount of Peace looking at the Holy Township, hoping he can settle on the mountain with no other human in sight. It is six o’clock in the evening and dark is fast approaching.

MY MUSIC VIDEO (18+)

Shea buttered melanic bodies display Scantily clad at the junction of stickdom Some faces needfully smileless Other faces hopefully smileful Some waists twirling Some hard buttocks twerking As I sing II I ring the ding to dong like a gong I am the tongue to bless with a song I need your wriggle to shed […]

SEARCHING

Hate her! How hard the hoe hits heads of hes Hurting hearts heated for her! Hurt her! Her hammer hardly has hands Here, heavens help hes So hiss and heap hatred on her!

FLY YOUR LAST

So you are aggressively flying here and there When most of your heads are hanging Some in the hands of your owners As your anger of blood gushes out like angry tap water fighting through a small hose Masters, fly your last!

The Peppering Reality

They claim if a woman buys a gun, it is kept in the room of a man. Nonsensical nonsense! I feel the men who lived in those times and still exist in the now need refurbishment of brains in order to see where their “waatonkyene” vehicle is now parked to gift them a clear vision […]

WHEN MEN FEEL INADEQUATE

MAYA ANGELOU; THE PASSING OF THE GIGANTIC TREE THAT SHIELDED MANY BIRDS

I heard a huge noise in the land Like the fall of a huge tree Guess what I saw parting the path; the sand. The sand which apparently had the huge fall seems not to be free It has taken a meal that is uneatable, I know The vultures stand shivering in fear closing their […]
