The Sands of the Times go down,
Pressed by the winds of Space,
And in the wild, crazy race,
Still is alive the face
Of the Lady.
Never lazy,
the thought,
From the eternity brought,
Many a time had been fought
for the Mother.
I wouldn't bother
the memory,
Words, the gestures of hands:
Daring silhouette stands,
Just recollecting the right,
The beauty of day,
The calmness of voice,
The Starlight of eyes, -
Never expiring life,
Striving for love and for kindness,
Ever protecting the sons,
'thought tiredness.

No One

(To: Oyinade Ogunba, Nigeria)

The sky here has no windows
The moon no sails
And the trees
Look exactly like their shadows.
No one dreams
To be a son of a star
Or a daughter of a whidah
O king of rain and wind
How can your steps step
And your songs sing?

(Chicago, USA,18 March 1994)

Hillary Clinton Ambition

Hillary what great ambition
She wanted to be POTUS of the nation
She dreamed to be president
She ran grueling campaign
She knocked opponents in succession
She met finally with one remaining hurdle
A tough guy from her city of Chicago
His name Barack Obama
They ran neck to neck for a while
His slogan was 'Yes We Can'
He mesmerized the crowds
As the race progressed
He streaked ahead
He won the race
He won the prize
Hillary Clinton had her place
In history books
Her name will be engraved
As the first lady
Who almost reached the top

Marina Gipps

Born into an odd name I never wanted
for it would not cheerlead me
into stardom according to numerologists
and Chicago Bears fans
who tortured me throughout my youth.

So I won't have a tombstone
to float over in the afterlife
attempting to erase the evidence.
I will only have this poem
which is a testimony of my disgrace.
