Exodus

An overripe fruit
Softens and rots over time,
Exposing new seeds.

Over Time

milz will climb over time and shine like a glass of wine,
as in time, as in time, is yet for him to find...
for which he is blind, blind to find this vary fine and devine peace of time...

oh how could the world live with out milz

Lessons Learned Over Time

Grapes ripe to pick and juicy when first licked,
Will always keep a taste sweet in one's mind.
As remembered lessons learned over time,
Are kept as one ages.
And the vine from which they were picked,
Remembered as if the only one to exist...
That committed an encouragement to nourish.

Accountability over time

I have always believed
that people
who propagated
accountability over time
should go to places
like the nuthouse

Yet the time
of a person’s life
runs out
and every day
sneaks past
while the next
goes on continually

Yet it remains wise
to live every day
to the limit
and to make
the best of it
as if it is the very last.

In England And All Over The World

Raped!
Abused,
By gangs! !
In England.
Bad gangs,
Bangs, fangs, hangs, pangs, tangs, gangs!
To abuse and to rape girls;
In England and all over the world.

Unpinned and Bowled Over

Unpinned and bowled over.
Did I expect it?
No!
Although it has been accepted.
With reluctance,
I admit.
But you did this with finesse.
A skill I wish I had possessed.
Perhaps that's why you passed the test.
With a striking delight,
That blows my mind.

I'm Gonna Sit Right Down And Cry Over You

I'm gonna sit right down and cry over you
I'm gonna sit right down and cry over you
And if you say good-bye
If you ever even try
I'm gonna sit right down and cry over you
I'm gonna love you more and more every day
I'm gonna love you more and more in every way
And if you say good-bye
If you ever even try
I'm gonna sit right down and cry over you
I'm gonna tell my mama tell my papa too
So they'll know exactly what Im gonna do
And if you say good-bye
Say if you ever even try

The Ebb and Flow of Time

The ebb and flow of time
Cascades down
The mountain of life
Its mystical hands tick
At the heartbeat of ever man

The ebb and flow of time
Cascades down
The mountain of life
Its mystical hands tick
At a women's pulse on life

Each man that walks the road
Meets a women in embers light
They meet and greet the sun and moon
For ever being lovers to a mothers womb

They share the joys of laughter and pain
The make a family whole again
They watch old age surpass them by
Entwine in love together no more

Then lowered to the ground
From whence they came
The essence of life
Restarts again

Morning break, Yes Break and Buy By Time

Morning break, yes break and buy by time
Dusk wake when day is done, yes done, the sun
Keep, the sun no son, no son no one
The day is done, did done its run into night
And the moon replace the sun, yes the day is done
And the sun is nowhere to be found.
The absent of light save for what the moon capture
But it is an illusion, yes the reflection caught
The star’s pin point, yes Orion belt all in a row
Pin point holes they seem so distant but never dull
They call forth man’s dreams of a new home
A new place to wait the dawn breaking
Yes it has broken upon the bloke who woke the sun.

Even a purely moral act that has no hope of any immediate and visible political effect can gradually and indirectly, over time, gain in political significance.

It is useful to the historian, among others, to be able to see the commonest forms of different phenomena, whether phonetic, morphological or other, and how language lives, carries on and changes over time.

I did the one concert, and I was not bitten by the conducting bug, and I thought I was done, but then the phone started to ring, and gradually, over time, I started conducting more and more. Now a third of my performances are with orchestras.

Gaping Holes

A single thread of illness,
One has in mind...
And accepted over time,
Will eventually fray what has been sewn...
To be shown and detected as problematic.

But the effects overwhelmingly seen...
Will never correct or mend,
Those gaping holes...
In a family of assorted fabrics.

All waited too late to make attempts...
Pretending a nonexistence in its making,
Had begun a slow unravelling.
Thinking the occurrence of this illness,
Was something to dismiss.

However,
Allowing just one piece of thread...
To pull them 'consciously' apart,
Becomes apparently obvious when viewed...
In the most inappropriate of places.
As this illness decays with intention.

'Wait a minute!
So what I had been told,
Was not true? '

~What you had been 'told' to believe,
Never existed.~

'Well...
How did all of this begin? '

~That should be easy for anyone to detect,
NOW.
A squeaking wheel ignored claiming to be victimized,
Has a way of getting louder and louder...
With a gaining of momentum as time goes on.
And all knew from the beginning,
Where the noise was coming from.~

Until Someone Is Challenged

It is a place of routines.
A job daily done.
A town...
Where everything done,
Is known by everyone.

And seasons go and they come.
Changing very little.
Accept for the birth of someone's daughter,
Or son!
Or a crime committed that stuns.

The only ones not aware of them...
Are those who are caught up,
In these same scenes.

Both routine and crime...
Over time,
Have come to be accepted
As commonplace as mustard is on a hotdog.
Or someone drinking a diet beverage,
Expecting to burn off fat sitting on wide hips!
In front of a TV with wishes to be slim and lean!
Many of them are frequently seen.

Like the expectation of holidays.
They come when they do...
But few know what they mean.

Anything that comes along,
With a differentness...
It upsets and it is quickly dismissed.
Or sits ignored.
Until someone is challenged to explore it.

Even though this freshness is best...
Folks in one mindset,
Are like eggs in one nest!

If someone sees a few that are cracked...
Eventually those left with shells unblemished,
Will end up at least equally...
Cracked matched.
To be stacked.
Given some applied insignificance.

Or damaged beyond recognition.

I Wonder Woman

All… that we know as mates…
What…are we doing…as mates…
Knowing and doing…
A decision you must decide…
Has nothing to do with pride…
(Repetition) …could be good or bad…
(In the case of Abuse) …
Arguments and beatings over time
Brings fear and a forced obedience…
In the case of love of self…
Arguments and beatings…
Brings separation and your freedom…
From that…no repetition needed…
Your queen hood succeeded…
Inner passion has much power…
You…are always the woman of the hour…
Your ability to be queen is…
Inevitable…for you are pregnant…
With such a crown…
No need for a beat down…You woman…
Are…Profound…
So remember that word, love…
And how near to a bed were you…
When, It was said…lol…
The good and the bad…
The…real ups and downs…
Your understanding…of…
(The grass is greener) …means much…
Woman…remember…God, gave you…
That touch…Use it…
Woman man, really is your student…
While being your lover…
Teach him, women unaware will thank you…smile…
Do your job, be queen, that is who you are…
And know, a man will respect that, no matter what…

Carnal Desires

I use to think there was
a grandeur design,
But that was a fallacy
epiphany unwind

We cease to mature
developmentally,
there is a domino effect
in every aspect - reality.

For some reason,
when individual growth is bent
stunted by some vile
life changing event.

The needs that needed
to be answered content
at that time we're molested
breeding fear and descent

Over time, building up
a gross of desires
left to fester and grow
deep and hidden inside her
striving to achieve
a satisfied state of higher

It's in this state
Desire's fractured in kind
keeps one blinded to
irregularity in design

individual seeks out
address wanton bulges
sickness with quickness
eventually indulges

many old people
glare at the young to feed
blatant carnal desires
selfish, horny deeds

Old men and women
leering everywhere
hoping to capture
embrace all that are fair

In their pursuits
they will all convey
a hope that pollutes
every thing they survey

It's a messed up trail
A not so living well
When the mind is so trapped
needing release from this hell

Unfortunately it's so
hard to tell
If the damage being done
was worth the effort to expel

On bands of thin light
We've a story to tell
And a life to live
An image not to fail

The Apple Stretching

The sun comes swaggering across the harbour,
And kisses the lady waiting in the narrows,
She already plenty shaky stands there,
Blushing, clutching the torch of liberty,
Uptown luigi who dont speak english so good,
Is having an accident,
Backing his dumptruck into the fence,
The tin cans go clattering down the lane,
A drowsy bum thinks its thunder,
And pulls the news over his head to stop the rain.
No, it aint judgement day,
No, it aint armageddon,
Its just the apple stretching and yawning, just morning.
New york putting its feet on the floor,
Its just the apple stretching and yawning, just morning,
New york putting its feet on the floor.
Suburban refugees fleeing the cracked cisterns,
Worm ridden fruit trees stream out grand central,
Please to be breathing bagels and pollution.
In time square new graffiti, old revolutions,
A bag lady is cursing the waiter for giving her a free coffee
Lucky hes a jesus freak moonlighting,
At the acme discount store over in queens,
The burglar alarm starts to scream,
A cop picks out his gun fires one and yells, freeze!.
No, it aint worl war four,
No, it aint world war four,
Its just the apple stretching and yawning, just morning,
New york putting its feet on the floor.
Nearby the hudson a hooker makes a u,
To help a blind man to his pew in the park,
Some long ago home training jars the memory,
The bag lady says thank you and curties.
The herd of beaten tourists limp homeward,
Having bitten off more than they could chew,
Moaning them old big city blues,
Miss liberty depicts her qualms and grins,
Another subway starts rattling,
And luigis cans go clattering down the hill.
No, it aint some kind of ill wind,
No, it aint the world coming to an end,
Just the apple stretching and yawning, just morning,
New york putting its feet on the floor.

Since You Been Gone

Since you been gone
I change and rearrangement into a girl I don’t know anymore
Nothing is same and I think was point of life?
If I can’t have one more chance
To show you that if we overcome everything by love we have and
What we have was special if you just believe in it
Like I do, well it’s too late for me and its ok with me because
I’m happy and blocking out negative in my life
I can’t trust anymore
I just keep it a secret like I never did before, who is this girl?
I can’t date and try to rebound
I try to move on to another guy beside you
I just can’t open up like I did to you because you were my only one
I didn’t worry and know it was right
Since you been gone
I feel like wind just sucks out of me
I should have done something, but
There is nothing to do, the result is the worst
Like always and it not getting better
I give up on this stupid drama we keep having
I feel like is not even same
I love you too much and can’t take you leaving, but
I let you go already and is over now
Brand new me
Life is different
New Journey to begin again
Destiny brought us together, but then
Tragedy is what brought us to the end and now
This is what brought us to the end and now
This is the result of what happen and I’m happy it did
I can let you fly away and be happy
Smiling on my face is back and this what I need it and it happen
Since you been gone
I learn, try to fixed my mistakes and mature person
I don’t care about other people’s opinion, gossip or what they say because
It’s all joke to me
Wow like I care in world to waste time on them
Please get real here, you think I will be sad, all crying, well I’m not
I’m smart and don’t even bother caring about it one bit
I’m just joyful person and nothing stops me from being it
It’s true I’m becoming stronger
One thing I miss the most is you
Since you been gone
I never told truth about dating you
I’m afraid about what people think of us
I never care what I want and what will make me happy and
Is you all along and you are reason
I trust, love, hurt, happy, smile and sad
You open me so much to the world that I never knew
You are reason I’m like this and feel the way I do
That’s why I keep coming back for more
That’s why I love you
You not like any guy I will never meet again
You are the only one can be like that to me that I would actually care
If other guy do it’s all pointless
You were one I really have connection with
I don’t care what people say
I was afraid for this relationship to happen like I never did
Before with other guys I like or date
You are good different
Since you been gone
I know reason why
I need let kite go with cut of string
Let you go fly and bye forever
Since you been gone

The Best Poets [Reprise]

The best poets are not born yet
Come to Africa, America, Asia;
There are poets of old; renown
Yet there are more unknown.
.
Wordsworth and Shakespeare differs
Soyinka and Clark are philosophers
Don't confuse Religion with Church
They are two seperate things
If no, you can tax your memory
Religion is our belief and how we
communicate with our God
God, our maker made us out of his own love.
But if that love has so deluded us
Then somthing must have gone wrong.
Today, the Church has become more of a business venture;
Pastors now fly on private jets;
Hungry children can't be fed.
.
Poetry, philosophy, and photography
Are all seperate things
If no, you can still ask your memory
They immortalize special moments
And leave the observer out in oblivion
But invention was no intention
to kill out oblivion
At the end, we shall forget them.
For this world is perfectly unfair.
.
Have you yet not heard?
The incidence that happened in Aluu
A community predominated by fools
Four innocent students were burnt
to their deaths
Right before their eyes they were made
to experience their worst fears; hell
Who said there should be another hell
after death?
Then God is not as merciful as they said
But that is not end of what I've said;
Four students were not given a chance
to prove their innocence;
In a matter of munites, that community
head had decided;
- Four innocents must be executed;
- Four innocents must be uncladded
- Four innocents must be bludgeoned
to their deaths
- Four innocents, must be burnt like I've said.
.
That day, angels wept
I never knew Lucifer could shed a tear.
Positions of leadership must not be
given to imbeciles,
For they will take their own anu*s
And use it to decide.
For how long will Nigeria
be cursed with its leaders?
This, I do not know
And Hell, well, Heaven, I still don't get it yet.
.
When I said the Church will steal
your money
I know hipocrites will say I'm greedy
But yet, you can still ask your memory
Who said my God is hungry
He has all to His means in Heavenly
Millions of angels at His bidding
Those alms should go to the needy
I mean the once who are hungry.
.
I have said times and times over time
I detest lines that rhyme
It gives too much humour to my thoughts
And my thoughts should be serious
Even tho' I now sound derilious.
.
When I said man have killed his God
I only meant man have killed his love
And love itself is an embodiment of our God
Without that love there would be no world.
.
O' dear uncle Hesiod
Who gave thou authority to keep Zeus
in Olympus
His world was ruled by his own sexual lust.
.
Listen, fellow Biafrans
They had won that war with our own
starvation.
Who said battles should be won
at the expense of others sorrows?
Together we pray and hope for a better tomorrow.
.
I had not asked God to give me a break
But today His world is ruled by hate.
If his world was made from love
Why did He bring Lucifer upon us?
.
Religion has become a bane of mankind
Love, in heart of man you can't find;
- Pastors will always ask for tithe;
- Bigots will always start a fight;
- Leaders will always tell a lie;
- Life is so frought with strife;
- Christ will always be by our side;
But then, we always walk out of His sight.
.
Where are those that call us black
monkeys?
They have come and gone with our
oil and money
But I swear I have also seen a white monkey.
.
Poems have been written by men
and women who carry
great thoughts with them,
These thoughts would suppress
And choke them to their deaths
Till they write it out in form of poems,
These people, they are, I call them poets.

Mail-Box

As you arrive in the morning
To your office, my dear
And check your mails
Without doubt you know
I’ll be there for you
Waiting to give you
The mail of the day.

May be a poem
Or a prose -
A quote or a photo
That touches me…
And I would wish to
Share with you.
Or as ever before
Like I write everyday
My Diary of yesterday.

You may read in a hurry
As you always do
For you may have
Many other
Errands to run to.
Yet, my dear
Let me say it to you
That all my letters
And words to you
Are written with care
And the precious time
That I love to spend
Writing to you…

It’s been like this
For the past many years
And I hope it would be
For many, many years
When you open your
Mail-Box
And find in it
Amongst all your mails
A letter from me.
Everyday, every morning
For all those years
Till the day you retire
From your daily
Commuting…
To that very same Office
Of your 20 years.


And the day you retire
After your service
Of two decades more
You’ll have some nice
Memories
Of working together
With your colleagues
Many sour ones too
Of those meetings
That failed
Those deadlines
That derailed
And some good savings
Of your life of work
And a repertoire of friends
That stayed with you
Through all these years…

May be in one of those
Bitter-sweet memories
You might remember me
That mail-box girl
Who used to write to you
So very diligently
Every day of her life
To feel close to you
To be as near you
As much as she could
From many miles away
With a lonely, longing heart
And so many words to say.

For she couldn’t be your wife,
Neither your mistress
Nor be at your side
As you struggled and you hobbled
Through your life’s major strifes.

She could only be
A mute witness -
To all what you endured.

She could feel the stresses
And the strains
Of those sleepless nights
That eating outside
Those early morning wake-ups
Of your tours and travels
Like a vagabond
Trying to balance it out
Between work and home.

And they say: You are Married.
Married to your wife
Or your company, I guess.

For most of your time
Is taken away
By those tours
And your travels
Of a working life
Sans your wife
Beside you…
On many such nights
And busy days too
When you would rather
Be a husband to your wife
Than be a work-horse
All your Life.

And slog and slog and slog…
Thinking you are indispensable
For your company.
Yet that day would dawn on you
As it comes for every man
When he realises
That the company whom he
Worked for
Cared for more than his family
That very same company
To survive and thrive
In this world of the Fittest
Goes seeking young-blood
And leaves you aside.

And at the end of the day
You then do realise
Was it really worth
Giving those extra hours
Everyday
To your office over-time
And missing out on
Your wife’s
Diary for the Day
Or all what your son
Had to Say
To a Daddy-Dear
He could hardly get to see.

As a friend of yours,
A well-wisher too
And in this one of my
Many mails
That I write everyday
To you…
I would suggest you:

Take care of your wife
Be with your son
For these are the days
You would miss very often
When you grow old
And look back
In retrospection
And find that those
Glorious days you spent
Upgrading your career
Position and status
In the Office.

Those will go one day
And someone else
Would take your place
And the company would
Still survive without you
As it has done
With people coming and going
In all such big MNCs

Yet once your wife
Grows old
And your son grows up too,
You’ll miss these “good old” days
When you missed seeing your son
Growing up
Into the young lad
He would become one day.

And your wife would also feel
As If -
She has grown too old, too soon
For neither youth was on her side
Nor the time
She wished to cherish
With you, in her conjugal life.

So her youth and her time
Both awaited you
As the hope of life
Awaits a dying woman
On her Death-Bed.

As for me, My Love
I’ve never had the Fate
To live with you
And would probably never have
The Destiny
To share with you
My Life.

And yet, the woman out there
Your betrothed wife
Is a woman like me
And your son out there
Is also like the son
I’ve borne in me…

So, I would always love you
To have a happy family
Take care of them, my love
And be with them
As often as you can.
For a job may come,
A job may go…

Yet a wife once lost
Or a son gone forever
Won’t come back to you
However much you repent
Or regret
Later on…
Thinking of the Whys and Hows
Of the jobs that you did
The tours and the travels
And the over-time
Your company Fixed
For you.

Always Remember…
You are married to your wife
And not to your company.
And your son needs
The “Daddy-Dear” in you
Even if he may not tell you
Often, every day.

So Care, Share
And Be There
For Them…
Trust Me – You’ll get many more returns
And far more contentment
As you look back
Over the years…
Of all those precious moments
You spent with your family
Than going for power, position
Fame and money
And being a lap-dog to your Company
By running after them.
