{POEM} Nnamdi Kanu’s Biafra

By Odimegwu Onwumere

Chike is my very good friend and Ofili is his father;

He is weeping against the disgust being shown by some persons
Against the struggle to actualise Biafra by Nnamdi whose father is Kanu.

Chike tells me, we should not blow up this opportunity

And I remember that in adventure, there is the danger and opportunity.

We have to look at the opportunity if we gain Biafra,
Not the danger we have to face while we pursue Biafra.

{Nnamdi Kanu}

Nnamdi has opened the once closed door of Biafra
After Odumegwu whose father is Ojukwu opened it.

We need not relegate our brother and the struggle
As Biafra is on the centre of the world beamed by stars.

Nnamdi wants to make us smile with Biafra as kindness
To our everyday life to light our hearts.

We accomplish different things at different age
Just as Chike my very good friend whose father is Ofili tells me:
We should not blow up this opportunity for Biafra.

{POEM} I killed My Neighbour Several Times In My Mind

By Odimegwu Onwumere

{Picture: Culled Online}

All through the night

Sleep eroded my eyes

Caused by the killing-abuse

Of a neighbour against me.

It was on Twenty-first of June

I nearly thought that killing was not forbidden

As I killed the neighbour several times in my heart.

The neighbour fumed from the head filled with marijuana;

My resentment heightened more than the eagle could go

Or more than the semen could go to form a foetus.

I thought of inviting the security agents;

I thought of dying or killing to defend my right

Even though I knew that nothing is worth dying or killing for.

The neighbour’s abuse was a war against my personality

Just as abortion is a war against the innocent child.

The neighbour was busy talking about its feelings

Not minding its feelings were killing me gradually.

That night, I killed the neighbour several times in my mind

Even though I woke up seeing the neighbour alive.
