Collins Aiterebhe

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

NIGERIANS OF MY TIME

Man's underhandedness

Nature's most made

Nigerians of my time

Are brave drudgers

Vibrant visionaires

Partakers in the new world 


They are worn audience

At a dead stage 

Of crook comedians

With bleak suspense

Spawning sweat

Like heat of sun 


Quick to ajudge

Quick to forgo 

Nigerians of my time

Will set a wild fire 

That goes out 

By drop of little water


Yet they will vote the devil

A thousand-time 

And go on 

With bright complaining smiles


Perpendicular followers 

Disgruntled in the pace 

Broken to promises 

Pacified by hope 

Poor Nigerians of my time

Who have no say in the matter 


The goal of greatness 

Is leaders' and the led 

But Nigerians of my time

Whenever ready

Can achieve any goal 


And ethnic bigots 

Religious extremists

In whose cyclone 

The Nigerians of my time 

Are spinning 

And shall spin to safety!

The moon witness' us,
At the blouse of tensed sunset,
Love, the name we bare.

And crazy they went
Vows and promises they put on head
14/2 marks their death

Val' as you are,

Gently receding
Beneath the horizon 
Fom whence she did rise

In the hallow of your beauty my heart dwelled, I sight the beams, i smell the charms of your overwhelming perfume, the power of my enduring heart fails me; then I plight to love you forever!

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
