Caught in the app
The lying art
He had mastered
With a sense of craft
He loomed viral now
Like a scandal on insta
Grammed in the pun
Of words he failed to fun
And fund his way from
The gaffe that should
Consume the timber
Of his caliber
Even as he prattles
Praying for bigger goofs
From the goof men in power
To consume his own
So he can return to his winning days
Of ease and pleasure
Obot son of Akpabio
The one who sent prayers
Oiled in the anointed tone
Of a money alert
In the inbox of his colleagues
In the sin ate house
Of the horribles
Is the man with the gavel
The hammer to nail in
The unreason that governs us
El Rough Eye
By Sam Ogabidu
His crime is not that he is short
There are many short men
Who are not intimidated
By their height
But not him
Who had to find the pole
To vault his ambition
Higher than men taller than him.
In grace and in place
So he could find a way
He became a brave curser
A hijacker and hate spreader
Hiding behind a loquacious tongue
Redlipped with morning lies
Betrayed only by the saliva flecks
At the corners of his mouth
He swipes and lies more
Hidden behind his framed glasses
He railed his anger to pave the path To climb higher and taller than all
So he divided his city into two
Uneven and unequal parts
And the unhappiness he spread in one corner
Rivaled the happiness he sowed in the other
And so he canceled himself out
Like the accident in our public space
That he says he is
