Babatunde Idowu Ebenezer Poems
I Am A Poet
Listen to the words rolling out of my mouth like thunder,
Just pause a moment,
And give a thought to the thoughts,
Oozing out of my mind like fire.
Lend me your ears and I shall sing you lullulabies,
And lull you to a peaceful sleep like a newborn.
Come near me and feel,
The vibration of the lyrics,
Of my heart shattering dirges.
Yes, pass across my way
And the rhymes of my
Drumless songs will not
Make you dance but
Siphon out tears from your eyes like raindrops.
But you say I am no poet.
I ask you 'Who is a poet? '
You say ...
Echoes Of Peace
But the wind of calmness will blow,
In your land there will be echoes of peace,
And your river of peace again with might will flow.
The giant white cock will crow,
And these songs of war forever will cease,
Then your beautiful black skin like diamond will glow.
