The Renegade

Panatella on his broad mouth
Oxonian accent locution flushing out hard
Like a rushing Brooks.
From crown to the arch
He was dressed
In a civilized suit.
His circumlocution were punctuated with
Apt witty
You could see it
When he talked
Like those Europeans.
His gesticulations go with the mouth
But our G Man
The chubby African man came from this
Dark continent.
On one corner
He dashed into a canteen
Well known in the country.
The man sat down
And ordered his meal.

"TWO SLICE MURPHIES, FRIED OMELLET.
IF YOU DON'T MIND RAGOUT MEAL.
AND AGAIN ADD A CHINESE SWIRL".

The steward boy waited patiently
Like an eagle prying a prey.

"AGAIN, I WILL NOT MIND HEINEKEIN, "

The steward boy
One of those local accent replied:
"Oyinbo man I don hear".

"YOU MEAN YOU DON'T SELL HOT DOGS?"

"Oh yes! "

"DAMN IT! WHAT DO YOU SELL HERE?"

The boy smile upon which he muttered :
"We sell amala, foo-foo, eba, towu shinkafa, and pounded yam".
Our G Man looked hurt
And with sotto voce, he said,

"TWO AMALA, TWO EBA AND TWO STRONG
POMOS.
PLEASE, ONE EXTRA BEER. I DON'T MIND
GULDER".

The gentle steward boy said"
"I think the last has just been bought
Please check the next canteen over there".

Our G Man
In his stentorian voice said:
" AMALA TOO NO DEY. WETIN KON DEY?"
He went away with a big shame.

At this time of the year
Love is like an angry sea,
With waves coming from all the angles,
Making all relationship struggle,
Tearing relationships,
The same way waves tear ships.

The ocean is endlessness with a bottom that only God's feet can get to
The intensity of the waves can always tell us her mood

The waves of the ocean is an ancient dance
The people of the water understand its power

The waves of the ocean have seen the spirit of The Almighty
Only the voice of God can silence her tantrum

  A sailing tempest ship glides
     Through the tensed waves of the ocean
  And doubts my destination home.

The stormy sea, the fear and the lost
Of dear ones amidst troubles
We shall sail to the coast.
