Crocs Away!

At the bank of the still water that house crocs breathing the stench of a gory death A cold-blooded stare at me and my dreams, With steely teeth’s poised to strike, and razor claws that sparkle death. Guarding me against my path, & snarls ‘if you dare!’ Oh dear! Is this a cul-de-sac? For I…

Moon of my delight

I like the view Quite beautiful I really can’t get enough of it Oh moon of my delight She shines brightly on the horizon Casting a spectral impression on the still water Breathing tidal waves Shore, silky & blonde; ultimate beauty recipe Little perky nose planted between two bubbles of flesh Beefy cheeks popping with…

Stale

He tried the bellow Channelled his energy from within To express his deepest affection and regrets To atone for his misdirections and poor judgement To breathe life again into what seemed unstoppably raging at a time But the extinguished funeral pyre had no glow in it anymore The lustre was gone, the splendour dead And…

Deathly

 Drifting with the wind on a dusty Monday morning is an old man with days far spent, and night, dangerously near. Strolling down the avenue, with trees saluting his age, the wind caressing his grace and the earth adjusting for his fade. He hangs his worn pouch of ages which he has no shame. His…

Young and foolish

Under the Dogonyaro (neem) tree in the air of the night, a mise en scene for a hoodwink plot. Birds chirp to the site of yet another dalliance. “there goes another Bromeo and Dreamliet,” the birds sang. Lights, camera, action! Comfy in the cloud of their own imagination are two young boobs holding hands and sharing…

THE POLITICAL DANCE OF DECEPTION

THE POLITICAL DANCE OF DECEPTION It all starts with a declaration Then the impetus, gusto and a pseudo-slogan shoved unto banners and fliers to the tune of deception Then comes the promises and effortless utterances A gathering of godforsaken, held captive by their selfish ambitions keeping afloat on their thirst for power, and driven by…

Nosocomial Engagements; my view on medical marriage

Marriage is a state of being united to a person of the ‘opposite sex’ as husband and wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law. This connubiality is a natural phenomenom with which nature herself did not instruct beyond choice of sex, and possibly, a check of compatibility. The notion that two professionals…

Tragedy et Courtesy

Tragedy lacks courtesy… It encroaches stealthily, as if on the paws of a feline, during our jolly times. Dawns on us regally when our attention is taken, without bidding. Befalls like a cyclone, leaving a trail of ruination along its course. Licking its paws of the blood of our beloved ones, to our faces, in…

Hello, Darkness My Old Friend

Hello, Darkness my old friend… I’ve come to talk to you again. You used to numb me like novocaine You used to be my oxygen In your company I breathe, I shine, I flourish. Me, myself and you (darkness) alone in you. You showed me the deepest secrets of you. How to be alone with…

Preach hate; Bleach faith

Preach hate; bleach faith. Rasp some pipe dream into their platter of hope.Β  Feast upon their ignorance Snooze on their bed of chains. Β Make their wail your sonorous dwell of slumber. Bloat your guts as their sweat moisten your orchard. Orphan their cubs to climax their agony as you blow your head in their maiden’s…

Blood and gore

I’ve tried I used honey 🍯 to sugar my thought Wring bitter 🌿 outta my core But there is something about the corridors Somewhere around the bend The unlit alley where shadows whisper into my ears Odes of blood and gore ✍🏾 WeirdmaskmanNG

Clogged

Brought in with speed and fury Plumpy, the envy of skinny Voice, muttering Breaths drawn with fits and grunts Like a woman heavy Hands clutch the chest as the cor flutters Head buried in Manus as doom looms Eyes shut as she entertains Malak al-mawt Tubings in her nares to smoke the reaper out her…

I wonder

Do these human savages have any noggins left to reason A thread or two of worm in their skull to do the thinking for them To fill their mind with logic and not reverberating emptiness Do they even reason for themselves? Or they’re mere slaves to the hate they give That blunts their sense to…

Grenade

Blush as I unhinge my pin, my dear To trigger my explosive heart πŸ’“ To lure & consume you with my affections … A love a bait That’ll leave your voluptuousness smeared with my shattereded heart And drain what’s left of my fractured soul. I ask again as I go on my knees ready to…

Paranoia

The fear of having no other route to ply Than the one that leads to her, Yet she’s at a junction of many roads to her, And you’re nothing but an option. The paranoia 😨… πŸ˜”

Be Alive

Breathe, the nourishment for the body Our first foray was Herculean Leaning to terrestrial life after months of submergence in aqua Breathing the yearnings of the lungs, to flourish the flesh and strengthen the bone Lashing the heart to beat on From which the noggins feast like a beast Choke, choke and all that takes…

Only Human

Precious fairy Here I am; only human All teary at the world’s scary Crawling through each rise and set of Cosmo’s fiery Pulling through the burden of gravity so fiercely Drawing fiery breaths like a dragonaery Drenched in brackish juice exuding from my pachydermic hide A bride to pleasure; groom to pestilence, And a stitch…

Half a dozen in December

Beneath it all is what drives us, the memories that remind us, The thoughts that remain despite the changes that try us The feelings that linger, the cravens we ponder, the failings we shoulder. By the moon, the sun & the everlasting stars From where we forge our hopeful & daring hearts To live this…
