Grasp your days



I hear chartering echoes and mumbling ghosts,

Sing to hunger a plea of no pleasure,

Hold basket of words thrown to prosperous dusk,

Hallow the furrow of unrevealed revelation.


I hear the winter, the Spring and the Autumn,

The dryness of the raining season dried the harmattan,

Monkeys left hurdles to banana curdles,

Men died a hallow death of impending rust.


Inevitable colourless doom, beautify the homely dust,

Dropping living stones of little nose,

I hear we all have a home beneath the soil,

Grasp your days lest you live in no minds…
