Palava…

Why man and woman matter serious?

Na just one habit dey bring problem,

When you operate ‘me’ instead of ‘us’

Na there love dey begin condemn.

°°°°°°°°°°

Reason this man and woman matter

Na selfishness dey bring palava

If you no dey involve ya partner

E no go tay, una go soon scatter.

°°°°°°°°°°

Man and woman hear my voice

Love na conscious decision

Loyalty and fidelity na ya choice

You go choose friction abi passion?

Status Quo

Your words were lies

Consequently mine be silent hereafter

As I wade the streams of your untruth

I drown, bogged down by silence.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now shall I begin to lie to you

In words, deeds and intent

Your stream doth birth a deluge

You will drown, deep into my abyss.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Their bodies were recovered

Both aphyxiated by untruths

In resuscitation they did cough up lies

Their saviors fortunately knew truths.
