Biography: ...I recall the pernicious vent of inanity, an attorney of songs; a kiss of imaginative empathy that dwells occasionally in artistic isolation!

ODE TO ANAMBRA WAXBILL BIRD

Dun- coloured finch
Gray brownish
Red bill and rump
Variant of attractive colours
And willowy body of waves
Inconspicuously fascinating

'Tzzzt tzzzt' you call
High pitched; eerie
Twittering and buzzing
To the whizzing light of the sun

Tirelessly over sedges
You sidle to and fro
Standing boldly with tenanty
Unsliding on bending graintops

Queen of rivershores
Master of lagoon sandbanks
Glory of marshes and swamps
Grace of estuaries

Anambra waxbill bird
Proudly called Estrilda Poliopareia
Uniquely Nigerian; pale eyes
Owning to your south southedness 

I am tall and granulated too
Ready to fly in earnest
But humans are a gargoyle!
