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 MAMBILA PLATEAU

Sine aspect rush of hardened slabs
Howl sprawl with diving stripes
Overseeing eyes of the gods
Plough over towns; downs of cities
And surfing and dining with snow-white sky
Along stony coast of the savanna
Your beauty unyielding
Spurts across arid paths; arid borderways
With counter-rhythmic respite
You fell in a sinusoidal-wavy gorge
Into the deep clutch of heights
You have not wane nor wither
Foxy Mambila; alluring like Habila
Cute cartel, bride; ever young
I love the siesta lull at your feet
The warmth of your evening dryness
I love your cynosures of ridges and climbing hills
Cresending Numan; across Jos Plateau 
Leaving the plungy harmony of the cactus
And diving far, far and beyond places beyond
About this country, something is beautiful
But we become a moon in the bucket of unsteady waters
Wild creatures preying its own
Only you Mambila is forever peace!
