SNIFF, INHALE N’ PUFF

sniff girl

I find it to inspire when I Sniff, Inhale n’ Puff
it introduces me to great friends, helps me
take a seat among nobles. My mouth opens
to speak wisely and to sing verses; it is good
for ‘I wannabe’ talks, better for courting maids,
best for wishful thinking and laboring hands.
So also it can carry you far, far away from sanity
far, far into dreamland, when if you eventually wake,
creeps your body, overwhelms your mind,
infecting you with vain ambition and mock reality.
When you relive the losses, failures, and broken hopes,
it brings back memories, memories you’d fain forget,
flashbacks of lost causes squandered fortunes.
My advice, in brief: “It profits not a man. Don’t insinuate
some self-righteous believe they’ve got a ‘Right’ or Duty
to prevent an intelligent, peaceful n’ free-thinking adult
from pursuing their craving, from being his Nature
No! No man, law, or opinion has that right,
but many have gone six feet under or nuts, families ruined.
Oh, Man of unencumbered will, let not this SNIFF, INHALE N’ PUFF
wrap your thinking or reduce you to Junk – to Beer Bottle Bird Brain.

A System

Poverty-in-Nigeria

A System –
that ignores its duty ‘o:
care, protection and justice
but preys on its citizens.
Self-serving pols
with a devilish trade –
‘winner-takes-it-all
looser-tears-it-down’,
loot us dry, run abroad from death
that can catch them anywhere. Read More

New Breed

Who are we,
sons of our father?
Or a new breed – a people few cheat
to detain power, empty treasuries
while many are docile, unconcern’d
to expose injustice and fraud? Read More
