Somehow, Oneday

How long will the stone in the air defy gravity?

How long will the sky hold on to a long due rain?

We shall be there to mock the bathroom

That dreamt of keeping fishes in custody

Crude joke of the trifling storm

That promised to collect water from the coconut

Or the trial of the bantam termite

That wanted to drill a tunnel through iron-ore

Preposterous as ridiculous

Is the passion of a rat that doles a hungry cat



How long will an impotent man keep a promiscuous wife?

How long will the clouds stop the sun from shining?

Despite the acrobatic stunt of fly

It landed on the ugly road’s stomach

Who will ride a tiger to his in-law’s birthday?

Either side, it shall definitely end somehow

The castle of ice when the sun is up

Or the arrogant flame of candle in the rain

All, All shall blunder in shame

And so shall we see the end

Of ill-gathered wealth as it crumbles one day



For how long will it survive?

A house of sand in the path of a tornado

A banana tree in the middle of the desert

Comprehensively will it be beaten

The frog that challenges a hare to race

Laughable as precarious

Is the visit of a deer to the lion’s den

The ant that blocks the path of an elephant

Is ready to see its intestines in the mud

Either side, it shall definitely end somehow

A inept cup of water trying to extinguish an inferno

Rio Ferdinand’s futile tackle against Lionel Messi

All, All shall bungle in defeat

And so shall we see the end

Of corrupt, sleazy, impervious despots



  1. Wow! Words fail me to fully express how excited I get when I see into the heart of a good writer, moreso a poet. Fabulous work, twas like the lines shouldn’t end. I’d be sure to keep following your works and I hope you don’t mind if I reblog a couple of them from time to time?
