A Rhapsody Of My Stuff; Celebrating “40”

Thank you Andi Ochu-Baiye.
Thank you Olivia Ejura Alfa Oyibo.
Thank you Angela Ochu-Baiye

I appreciate the honour and time this must have taken.

I bless you all.

I am Dan Ochu-Baiye
Let there be trust
Let there be communication
Let there be; love…

I am fire. I am wind. I am water.
I can warm or burn
I can cool or destroy
I can refresh or drown.

When I touch you
It will be with awe.
When I take you
It will be with honor.
When I hurt you
It will be in error.”

To the goat give shrubbery.
For your input reap milk or flesh.
But the lion; he will take the goat
For your input, maybe your life.

I have always loved you. It has always been you.
The curious blend of your hair length and skin tone, your flair and feminine charms.
Your delicate fragrances, your adorable eyes…they pleasure my eyes.

I will testify of Thine deliverance.
My lips will tell of Your mercies and graces upon Thy servant.
Of how Thou Lord hast enlarged me to their ridicule.
To my glory and for Thy glory.

I am Dan Ochu-Baiye
Stoic, Brutish, Savage, Unimpressed, Brash, Daring, Focused
Truthful, Sweet-ish, Emotive, Composed, Compassionate, Thoughtful
Paradox of paradoxes.

Chikamso’s Swan Song

Mist, life, and shadow
All doth end.
As do war; rain and sorrow.

It is full moon tonight.
Let us eat of varied honeys
Sip, lap, and consume exotic elixirs
Let us burn the bushes
Journey east to Asia
Euphoria… Utopia…

Take a bit of my heart
For I see you left of yours.
Cry, for I know you must
I, will howl at the full moon, tonight.
