Motion And Emotion

Yahoo Boys and Yahoo Girls!
For, you are now noted by us in this town.

Motion, emotion!
You know my name and you know who i am;
But, the kisses of Africa is all about your muse.
Bedfellow,
To divert your muse!
But, the kisses of Africa are in many forms.
 
Edward Kofi Louis

Home Goes the Troublemaker [For Nelson Mandela|

Home goes the Troublemaker*
A nationalist of valour and vim
Virulent stumbling stone for racism
Africa, let tears fall for Him!
.
Home goes the Troublemaker
He went across a severe stake
And the jinx of apartheid he did break
Africa, let tears fall for His sake.

Joseph Oladehinde Ibikunle.
(NOTE) 'The Troublemaker' is got from Nelson Mandela's fore name 'Rolihlahlah' a South African's Xhosa term colloquialy meaning 'troublemaker'

  299.     

In the memory of a man

Silence,
For a man who showed Africa
Is not one with ignorance.

A man who shared the truth.
A man who respected heritage.

Rest in peace,
To a man who took the laments of his nation
And wrote them for the world to see.

Chinua Achebe,
May your name be written in Africa's soil,
Where you now sleep.
 
Mariam de Haan

  300.     

The Needy

The needy are fed by impulse
The givers give by will
Not because of pity but other purpose
That they have gained above their will
Whether they worked on the bridge or the corn mill

The takers accept with cheer
The givers they see as dear
When they receive they see no one so near
They are not ready to share, not of fear
“Adapt adapt as Africa assimilate America
Adapt adapt as Africa to the sun
Give as you are given, so can your forever be a reaper”
The givers cry out to the needy as father to son
With this experience, they turn into seers.
 
Gideon Arthur
