Rather die

She is beautiful, that’s true. With bright eyes and full lips, long neck and sleek hair Her skin smooth like polished wood Her smile so charming, it makes your heart melt   She is indecent, that’s true With bare cleavage and exposed crack, lost morals and obvious thighs Her nipples firm like cashew seeds Her…

The Ex’s poem

It’s not okay to walk away, to turn your back or change your lane It’s not okay to quit today, from all the hopes I brewed to stay It’s not enough to wish for more, like I’m a plague or scar or pore It’s not enough to say goodbye to what we have, I’ll tell…

What will it take?

If I asked you to mention the three most influential people in the world today, you will probably mention President Obama of the United States, Queen Elizabeth of England and Ban Ki Moon of the United Nations. More than half of the 7 billion people in the world will be willing to do anything just…

Christians in Politics: Yay or Nay?

INTRODUCTION Politics is real. It influences our life and living from before we are born till the moments after our death; from the minute we wake up each day to the moment we go to bed. It affects our health, our homes, our jobs, our resources and our families. But before we discuss politics and…

So much madness in town!

I grew up with a mad man. My father was never mad and I never lived with a guardian. Making reference to comments made by my mother over the decade before the last, it is safe to conclude that I was born in a clinic situated in the brown-roofed city of Ibadan, even though I…

Seeds of life

  This month is a seed, invest it A peephole to your future, respect it We know the status quo is tiring, detest it You feel pain, you want gain, suppress it They may offer cash for your soul, reject it Throw shades to diss or piss you, deflect it ‘Cause value comes with dignity,…

LIFE & I – Sanmi Abiodun

I’m twenty eight It’s getting late The world wouldn’t wait To have a taste Of what I create So I should in haste Hold fast its waist Exert my weight Promote my faith Or live a waste   I’ve walked some miles But feet are fragile I must be agile To remain mobile Destroy my…

My Strawberry – December 24, 2009 at 1:43pm

A flower… made me. Like a sheep at the altar… Like a thief at the slaughter… Like He at Golgotha, my mind was rumbling, mumbling and tumbling. “Should I make a rose out of these ashes? Or should I cling to the ashes of a rose?” Enough hurry Too much scurry Enough flurries Too much…

LOVE ME, I’M A LAWYER!

I was sure that my Monday could not get any worse after losing the matter for Chief Fioladabira at the Lagos State High Court, and losing my voice in the same process. I WAS WRONG! Fries Afrique, a notable hangout joint in Lagos Island usually attracts Junior Associates from my Firm with its orgasmic cat-fish…

WHAT EXACTLY ARE WE SELLING: TIME OR SKILL?

  I walked past the Firm’s legal secretary as he angrily punched the keys on his computer keyboard, and even though I had compassion on the keyboard, I would not have stopped if I had not seen my name being typed: “Kayoto is an Associate in the Firm. He is a graduate of the Otukpo…

TESTIMONIAL OF A CONVERTED HERMIT

Ten years, six academic sets, many lecturers and millions of naira ago, I was an innocent, naïve and little boy with a vulnerable mind. I liked nobody, wanted nobody, spent time with nobody, but I hurt nobody! And that was all that I was, till I got involved with a religious group which was meant…
