Beware! She’s sassy, smart and scheming.
Those winsome smiles are decoys
armed with ensnaring visage.
Those licentious dances of curved flesh
throwing themselves into tempting postures
are only potent assaults to your senses.
She seeks not a lover or a marriage mate, but
a good life of ease and comfort at your expense.
She seeks not men who manage to spare few wads
of Naira, but to get pregnant and birth a ‘random’ child.
She cares not if you’ve a wife, a family or dread a scandal
she is shameless and without scruples.
Love – a confession unknown but uttered by them all
is their warrant of death offered upon tickles of lust.
Those moans and murmurs you crave when Desire
snort and prance the blooming centre of her thighs
seeking entrance into some hospitable retreat
to hide your impudence may well be your dirge.
Control your lust or
She is a cankerworm!

By the tollgate at Lekki, by the roadsidefar from the comforts of our loved oneseased from the day-to-day tasks we abidethere we sat in anguish n’ anger – agitated. Placards we brought with us –a solace to our heavy hearts,a plead to the world to hearbut soon we found we’ve upset our censors. With resentment, […]
The will to power destroys the power to will.The weapon made, we cannot help but use it;it drags us with its own momentum still. The power to kill compounds the need to kill.Grown out of hand, the heart cannot refuse it;the will to power undoes the power to will. Though as we strike we cry […]
