Treasure Island

Chinweokwu Sunlight M. Ndubuisih

(10th January,1987 / Enugu State)

Only If


And only if
The wind know
We are skinned
Primates
It shouldn't spray us dust.

Only if the sun is prudent
It should not shine its ray
On our delicate skin.

Only if the moon know
That we are Sons of God
It should not stop shining.

Only if the night could think
Aright
It should know that
We have to be at sleep.

Only if the day is up and doing
It should desire to give pace
For the noon and night.

Only if the morning could be
Generous too great
It should be a window
Of blessing to the living.

Only if running away from problem
Is the only suitable solution
Then all shall run at the
Surface of any.

Only if the earth is the worst ream
Shall anyone desire to live forever
If at all possible? .

Only if the Preachers of the Gospel
Could stand the mouthpiece
Of the message of God
Could anyone be found unbeliever?

Only if all who go to Church
Hear and digest
What the bible teaches them
Oh! Our world would be miserable
Free! .

Only if all is well with Our road tracks
Would accident be day after day
Headline on the news paper? .

Only if all is well with Our health system
Should Malaria be an intermediate
Killer disease? .

Only if there is a good facility in Our
Education system
Should we live with lactations of
Man power capacity? .

And only and only if
Our leaders lead with the fear of God
Could nepotism ever get
A practicing worker - Nepotist? .

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
