Did You?

Did you see the thoughts of my heart,
When tired, exausted, nearly frustrated,
Yet strong, with the head towards the stars,
I was working for your low rating?
Did you hear the whisper of your soul,
Ashamed, weak from lies and the fraud?
They both had thought you
were bolder,
They both were sure you were better brought,
But they were mistaken and upset:
Your better ego seems to be now dead.

Chicago Sunrise

I was travelling the new world
and on my way from north to south
I found myself in Chicago

I saw the sunrise and forgot about you
It shone a different light
and I escaped you - there is someone else on my mind for now

It brought to light the windy city,
cold and bleak,
like the embers of you and me

I knew I was off to a better places
where the sun shines, clearing my head
there you fade with the setting sun

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)

Class Act

When I think of the term class act,
There's no one larger than Mr. T.
From the south side of Chicago,
When the streets were awfully mean.

He works with sick children everywhere.
And he gives to others in need.
Doing it without fanfare,
Each day are many good deeds.

He gives credit to the father,
The One Who sits on the throne.
It's only in movies he's angry,
As he hasn't a selfish bone.

If kids today need a hero,
He will never turn one away.
For he's a friend to all who need one,
He treats everyone this same way.
Robert Edgar Burns
