Oh Sing Oh Valiant Men Yes Sing by Akinwale Peace

Akinwale Peace

Oh Sing Oh Valiant Men Yes Sing.

Across the sea along the shore
Where distill still sea wave a snore
And windy twist hid us our snore
As we ebb against the sea shore.

Chorus
Let's go oh men of Black let's go
To a country of milk untold
Let's fold our hands and walk infold
Let's guard ourselves like sleeves of fold.

Oh captain row the boat like wings
And make sea spread of fluttering wings
Where distill water still and swings
As they've wronged us and made us jinxs.

Chorus
Let's go oh men of Black let's go
To a country of milk untold
Let's fold our hands and walk infold
Let's guard ourselves like sleeves of fold.

Let's go oh men of Black a way
And fly abroad like trees doth sway
Let's dress not of a slave of clay
Let walls ear words as freedoms say.

Chorus
Let's go oh men of Black let's go
To a country of milk untold
Let's fold our hands and walk infold
Let's guard ourselves like sleeves of fold.

Let's go oh Negro men let's flee
From deceit eye of false decree
From lips of sadness that seems glee
And songs of sorrows oh let's flee.

Chorus
Let's go oh men of Black let's go
To a country of milk untold
Let's fold our hands and walk infold
Let's guard ourselves like sleeves of fold.

Across the sea we've fought for them
Our skin at home no cares for them
And yet we toil to feed our stem
And them we made our diadem.

Chorus
Let's go oh men of Black let's go
To a country of milk untold
Let's fold our hands and walk infold
Let's guard ourselves like sleeves of fold.

Oh sing oh valiant men yes sing
For wishes made has made chime ring
Let's match like ants to make our king
For slow and steady can we spring.

Chorus
Let's go oh men of Black let's go
To a country of milk untold
Let's fold our hands and walk infold
Let's guard ourselves like sleeves of fold.

A GLIMPSE INTO THE TWO WORLD | John Kelechi Uzoma

A GLIMPSE INTO THE TWO WORLDS

A quick look into the deep well,
  I saw the cloud swimming.
Smiles had blown up my cheeks
  whilst quite stable stood my feet.


Again, I saw the eagle in the well,
   flapping its wings but drowned not,
A huge fear hugged my statue,
   yet, I stood as one being halted.


Quickly, as I looked upon the sky,
  i saw gallons of smokes racing,
As i slept in mute just to imagine,
   my head swelled so high.


Then, I walked off the well side,
  terrible could be life after life,
But life after death, is like feathers...
   logging into the mud for ages.

BOOK PUBLISHED: TEARS IN MY EYES by OLOLADE AKINLABI IGE.GENRE: NOVELLA

Synopsis.

                     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…

THE LOCAL HENS AND THE CHICKENS.
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.

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…
