The Opposition

Near the big river build an innocent port
Why build a port when people are starving?
The much needed staple maize do import
Why didn’t you just subsidize farm inputs?
Farm inputs subsidized and win support
Nothing it is, but a filthy campaign strategy!

A Mother's Care

She is a fighter like none
When she has to fight
For Her daughter, her son
She beats all and sundry

The Aroma from the Kitchen

She is making the trip from the kitchen where she lives
Her soft body is working out a host of seductive moves
Like a serpent bending and twisting her round curves 
With the grace of a super model her whole form flows
Cunningly she is coming forward across all the corridors

Infectious Spring

Welcome to a breakout of infectious spring 
Crawling with beauty that is highly infectious
The sky is blue and clear and good a friend
The happy air is inflated with beauteous awe
That will shoot into the depths of every cell

Change is Coming

Love it or loathe it, change is coming
Just when all is perfect and delightful
Happily settled and content in place
Change is coming like a wind to scramble
The pieces into wild untamable directions

Pinnacle of Achievement

This is so breathtaking
It is lifting the burden of air
Off the panting lungs
And it is pouring in them
Floods upon floods of awesome delight

A Time for a Blessed Kiss

It is time for a blessed kiss
To seal the matrimonial vows
And the congregation is blushing
With the anticipation of the kiss
For there is something about a kiss
As clear as water as complex as rocket science

Here is a Riddle

Here is a riddle that will make your mind twiddle
There is a battle that you and you are waging inside you
Between you and you there is a heated conflict going
And it's wrecking havoc and creating a big confusion
So potent that it's shattering all the peace inside you

Constitution Dethroned

Elevated to the very top with pomp
Yet trampled under mighty indignity
A high ruler of the supreme order
Yet pushed aside in a third term bid
The rule of the law nobly unbreakable

A Tearful Complaint

Always I am thus cast in a bad treasonous light
A son of the darkness, says the slanderous lot
A harbinger of sadness, thus lies the crowd
A friend of the deathly grave, so says the world

Hail The True Leader!

Such a mind that builds solidly fortified missions
Impervious to scheming and rebellious distractions
The leader stands out and guides legions and nations

Men Working Ahead

Oh road, so tattered and battered
Get now inclined to be refined
With a little matching patching
Square patches here and there
That will seal these loony potholes

The Paradox of Humankind

A kind infinitely caring and kindhearted the humans are
Their lovely homes, their comfort, they readily abandon
And go to distant places to feed abandoned strangers
To cloth them and steal away their miseries and tears
To replace their sorrows with embraces of affection

Art Thou Brave? Thou Liest!

A brave heart not even the grave can enslave
Steady as a fountain, mighty as a mountain
As angry as a lemon as stubborn as a demon
And raging thunder is such a friend of wonder
Hero is the word written on my bold forehead

The Rainy Wiles

I pray I beg for the rain to come
To come to give life to the land
To nourish my crop in the farm
The taps to have water on hand

Failure? Either a Foe or a Friend

It is a crumpled and frustrating flat tire
That is slumped there going nowhere
Ambushes a desperate journey so dire
Hinders progress to a goal so glorious
Mightily striving to stifle the coveted bliss

The Cunning Street Vendor

Slowly I will sneak back incognito
Back to my rightful and glorious den
Like a chameleon slowly unseen
Today one leg tomorrow the other
Now so white then as black as the night
Sure to be back on my feet on the street

The Dark Clouds

An intense gathering of irate clouds
So dense so heavy so dark
Banishes the sensible sun to the outskirts
Intent on raining down on the land

The Fat Mosquito

She comes into my net as thin as her own legs
With ease she passes through the big net-holes
In the invisible darkness she launches the assault
Sucking my blood voraciously in my deep slumber
Ceaselessly she inflates herself to total roundness

The Treacherous Future

You will always be dear to me and my heart
Forever you will live in the castle of my heart
Your absence will bring that castle to ruins
Never will I ever dump you out of this castle
We are glued forever impossible to tear apart

A Strange Life

Oh hurry and be quick dawdling everything
Like a busy storm forever gathering pace
Like a furious rocket tearing deep into space
Why make each tiny inch an endless mile?
Like a chameleon counting every useless tile?

The Peace Dilemma

May there be peace in the world!
May everyone exercise utmost restraint
Fleeing like hell from the urge to mime
May there be no more cruel wars on earth
Conflicts deserve only to die and be buried
May peace deals always emerge victorious

The Prying Stars

Who are you tiny twinkling lights
You tiny blinking, curious eyes
Huddled across the vast skies?
We're stars, the giants of the skies!
Beyond the reach of your little toys
We're the masters of the big bang
We are giants you ignorant man!
