The Process

Osmosis it's when the gradual process
Of learning or being influenced by something
As result of being in closer and closer contact with it.



Ossification it's when that process
Is a fixed process, unable to be
Changed by any circumstances...

Never The End

Burying is always seen as lamentable
Something. But, why is it the case?
Why is it that we have this problem,

 This brain fog with burying things?



How come some of us still
Yet to realize that for you to
Cone alive, you need to be

The Losers

Losers:



It perched on the wall
Bedside his window and
Busied itself pecking at
It's leg pretending to be
Unconcerned.



But he knew it wasn't
Normal bird in the sense
Of normality, it was a
Messenger bird not in
The mold of...

  Social media is what it is
Social Media and nothing else.
AII the attempt to make it something
Else never really worked and from
The look of things would never work.



Tik tok is an ingenious social media
And all the...

Placebo gods

Never put your trust in
Man for there is nothing
They can do for you at
appointed time. man
Is nothing but dust and
Fleeting being.

If you must put your trust in
Anything, let it be in yourself
Never in any outsider. Trust
In self is a...

Their Fools, Our Fools



 


Fools have wrong ideas of themselves and those around them. They always believe they are up there and others down there on the composite.


Maybe in some cases, it might've been true, but majority still carries the vote. Yet,...

String Games

Haggle is what you engage in when
You feel like teasing, when you ​Play games, answer clarion calls,
When you don't have that strength,
That means to do otherwise.



Wrangling is what you do when
Your pocket is empty when your

Process stick with it.

Facts Of Facts

Manipulation that is how I viewed it

  They are in the habit of settling on one

  One issue with another unrelated issue

  And called it intelligent free and fair



  Their logic is a well-marketed line:

  One can not be good in one...

Another Life

The middle aged Hausa woman

 Sat at the bank road that
Doubles as the new-parts second gate

A beggar that each day I made trip
To the banks in that area, she will
Sit on the same spot asking for alms

I will put little denomination note

Trooper ways




Soldiers go, Soldiers come.
The way of the world since creation. They won’t be CR7, Messi, Neymar and rest of the known.

Nature never shirk their responsibilities, no human weakness on their part. Their bags are never short of tricks and...

Marian Lawan

I don’t have the statistics
The percentage of the healthy
I know not. We are all just winging
It. The reality is that many are just


Walking dead, pushing it each day
To the severing point, eyeing the
Fall each day. We came as a visitor ...

Human Vibrations

They willingly signed the
Death certificate and later
Called it the act of nature.

But nature kept distancing
Himself from what is being
Attached to him and vowed

He wasn't in town on
The day of their agreement
“Do you think I am...

Playing Spiritual Beings



Humans, their antics knows no bounds
They map out land demarcations
And then go contrary to them
And start killing each other.

Everything has names given by
Humans and yet, they take pleasure
In jumping into others kingdoms

Rewards Of The Arrogant




Few years ago, they landed
Full of evil plans, plots and eagerness
Went about laying foundations
They set traps and dug ditches.


They are too sure of their success
Their reputation precedes them
They are the alpha and the...

Under The Canopy Of Who?



Sure to some extent, we can have security. But mostly, It is illusionary
The question is always:
Under whose canopy?


A wealth of the nations,
A wealth of the individuals, the thing that kept many juggling each day

The Ways Of The Cowards




Illusion is the weapon

For it or map out unnecessary

Appears in many fearful forms
To harass the stout of heart
Threatening drought in their...

Societal Ignorance





  I created history, first in my lineage. But, it wasn't intentional, never what I am proud of but, here it’s attached to me and my memory probably forever.
I am a pariah to all who know me, the scorn of the family and community. Man, no...

Den Of Lions

Ostrich with the head on the ground.
Ears, eyes, and heads are all useless.
Unable to help self or anyone for the matter. Never gives a farts.


  Escape you and your family never

  Look back or your fate might be worse than those you are...
