Nemes's Is A Fortune In A Padlock by Akinwale Peace

Nemes's Is A Fortune In A Padlock.
Nemes's is a fortune in a padlock
with a lost key, recover'd by villain's deed,
It's the morrow that wouldn't be yester
It's the unfortunate luck of evil;
A re-bounce of the bounce that has been bounced.
It's like a hot coal placed on the bed Such
will sleep just to endanger another
whereas Such fell asleep first 'n' fall on it.
It's as the sun at night-star; the big light
that seconds the first, it's retribution.
There once was once a man with two children;
He loved one most, the other the mother
loves most. When Father was stricken in age
and has no hair on the head nor eye in
the eye, he called his loved to bless him but
make him Bush-meat before. Mother gossiped
to her beloved and he outsmart'd Father's
beloved, father blessed in misconception
And Father's beloved lost to mother's loved.
Mother's loved was afraid like a coal neath'
the rain and thus ran like a hungry bird
to another land to stay and increase,
Mother's loved became rich and reconciled
with Father's loved. Thus, he grew old with most
of his sons as sons of Belial who sold
is favorite and lied that he was killed
by a wild bear, thus his life became a
troubled rainbow in a cloudy moonlight.
Nemes's is a fortune in a padlock
with a lost key, recover'd by villain's deed.

Read the story. TEARS IN MY EYES



                     TEARS IN MY EYES     The anxiety for sex prompted the award winning and young Nigerian poet (Ololade Akinlabi Ige) to sharpen the keen mouth of his pen to write the novella: TEARS IN MY EYES. This is a book for everyone to read.
The pains and agony the main character in the novella went through were meant to awake the conscience of the wicked being. 

     Ariyo is a beautiful lady. Eyes cannot deny that. She is a product of rape but she leaves behind her worries knowing fully well that the world is good for no one. But she feels it is very stupid if she eventually falls victim of what led her to life. She tries to always avoid intimate relationship with boys because she knows quite well that boys often come with different missions in which most of the time their common mission is sex, sex and sex.
     But we are all human being, this heart needs a companion. So it is for Ariyo who uncons…



Once upon a time, a woman has a big store for her chickens. The chickens are so big that they give big and good eggs everytime they release eggs. The woman fed them so much that they were weighty even after releasing eggs.
One day, a customer brought some local hens to her, she said
"Try them, they are also good hens. They give big eggs as well. You'll enjoy keeping and feeding them."

The woman collected them and added them with his chickens. The chickens and the local hens stayed together in a place.
One day, the woman gave them the normal food they eat, as the chickens pecked their food moderately, the local hens scattered it with their legs as they peck, they scattered it around and peck, they did that till they liter the whole place.
Mother hen looked at the chickens,
"We're the same now, we eat the same food. We will yield the same eggs, we will be on the postal too."
The chickens flap their feathers feebly and rested th…


For Ikeoluwa.

I have sailed in the ocean — on
your body's warm drenched spot axis,
and i have felt the touch of your
freezing burning hands and cold words:
you said some soft words gently in
my ear on a cold night. and my
body is a tree, it rustles
when winds beat. winds like your mutters.

I have a whirling desire
that we are over the 9th edge;
grabbing, rocking, licking, tasting —
and the passion flows 'n' action shows.
your whole body defines a lot
even when i see nothing but
the voluptuous pillows of a
tired bed, calling me to sleep.

Slowly, this pace beats rapidly
like a running fire. and i'm
burning coldly on a meet with
your whitish round thorax muscle.
glorious! your body is a bike
and i'm good at riding roughly.
slide and glide, make a symphony
of our salvation on this cold night.
