Kolade Seun Poems
Oh! What a cause to lament for; the pollard has been cut off, the strong Iroko is now sore. The polemics have been extra-ordinary in their new clone. Oh! See what exility has done!
Sing Songs flying bird. Sonorous voice fill the air. Pressured lyrics fill my ear. Sound of purity, wash the soul.
It seems am in love. In love with a strong powerless entity. It's name as given to her by her mother, is tree. I want to lay my beds beside these Trees.
There's a rendition I want to give; His attention I want to call. To me who was lost;
I have been a son; since I was borne. I have called you father; cos you've made me matter.
A day with stamerers, makes you a wanderer. How you wish to tame! So cold the throat and lame.
A Trip To The Sea
Seeing that I see to be blinded by what I see Makes me not want to see. Hallucinating inside the sea; Makes me to see why I have to leave the sea.
His words lay there for us to hear; But as Flesh we are, the truth we cannot bear. Also as homo sapiens we are; we've reviewed our retrospect perspective of his words; Defilling His very words,
It looks like luck; but it's not. Call it grace; why not? Deep ocean, full of tantalized bouquet, prepared for thou; is it not? Fishes in the ocean, all make sway, to escape the teeth of the shark; but thou standeth still; but it's not.
Its mild and a norm to be without a fright; cataclysmic experiences bury forever plight; Unexpected predicaments to contend with all the remain might;
Who art thou, that speaketh: 'the beautiful one's are not yet born? Who'd ever know, such a soul exist? Your beauty, define lots of wealth! Your very kind, designed to mock the very existence of 'rote';
How concise can I be; Explicating these writings on my little dark board? I've tried decoding; Just too odd!
Who wonders with me what I wonder? Can we be two with the same thought? Who wonders: 'who'd have been saved if 'the thoughts were knew? ' Oh, would I have been saved, if they knew my very thoughts?

Oh! What a cause to lament for;
the pollard has been cut off, the strong Iroko is now sore.
The polemics have been extra-ordinary in their new clone.
Oh! See what exility has done!
Oh! How true it turns out: the best way to enslave a tree is by deculturizing it from its root.
Oh! Now it thinks she has a new look...cute.
Let the tears flow,
black pride has gone low.
Polarized perspective about the soil.
Oh! How deculturized thy soul is...
How egalitarian does thou see thy fellow tree now?
No, they are too natural before thou.
They've not been ...
