I RUN MOST TIMES FROM THINGS I DON’T WANT HOLDING ON TO ME ANYMORE

  Almost everyone is a runner. Whether it is towards something or away from something, almost everyone runs. Those who don’t run are either walkers or flyers, either way, they are movers. The sad thing is, people often run away from things they shouldn’t and run towards things waiting to destroy them. Sometimes, just because we breathe in and out, things chase us. A lot of people have missed their ways because they don’t know why they are running in the first place. They see someone running in one direction…

POLITRICKCIANS HAVE PROMISED US LIGHT, ALL WE SEE ARE CANDLES

  POLITRICKCIANS Why do we allow lions to rule the forest? While zebra’s just eat grass And snakes never leave rats to rest Monkeys sleep on their mother’s crest While tigers eat the hyena chest.   Politicians; perhaps truth trickers Machiavellian philosophy parades their domain They would promise an elephant, Later we would see an ant Metamorphosis starts and stay on their mouth Like the society is a composition of rogues.   Bernard and Aduke eleko(both ning-nong) Have sold their joy to these moguls Ne’er-do-well they are now; And politrickcians…

MICHAEL’S CORNER: IJÓ ÌFÉ (SWING OF LOVE)

  IJÓ ÌFÉ (SWING OF LOVE) Move towards here ájìkè Come and cut a rug to this tempting bátà booming Which is caned by me, To rampart your focal point from heartrending. For in this pulsate, joy and seventh heaven Are taking up residence. Come here ájìké, For the one and only arèwà obinrìn of your quality, I am striking this bátà thrum for, Which is striking of ásá-íbìlé. For it’s the strike of this throb Aláàfin of óyò empire rocks n’ roll to And joy crept into his bottom…

ADETUTU’S CORNER: DEAR PAST

  Dear Past, Remember me? The country child whose happiness you took away? Remember the flowing gowns with ribbons tied into bows at the back? Remember we cried together during the times I had it rough? You were so reluctant to go So I couldn’t grow quickly   I am not done yet Don’t look away Remember the failed relationships and how angry they made me? The promises? Remember the reassuring smiles and words of people who only had their eyes on the goal and moved away immediately they got…

SIMI WRITES: MARRIAGE – A DO OR DIE AFFAIR?

  I can remember vividly after serving my father’s land, after much well wishes and congratulations… Talks like “what next”, “when are you getting married now”, “when are we coming to eat rice”, asoebi things became the order of the day. I am not debunking the fact that marriage is enjoyable but who says it should be a do or die thing. I want us to erase the notion that marriage is an achievement, it’s a choice. Stop acting as if your life depends on it. Little wonder people are…

ADETUTU’S CORNER: FROM A MAD MAN’S PERSPECTIVE

    Typical humans! Anyone who doesn’t behave the conventional way is regarded as this You see us smile as you drive by and shake your head in pity You are the one who should be pitied You can not see the lizards crawling over your bodies You are dressed in well-cut suits, alluring dresses and lovely shoes yet flies hover round you Like refuse dumped by the roadside   We talk about people dancing and we join in Singing as well, yet you cross over to the other side…
