Dikter: Adeolu Ajobiewe

Adeolu Ajobiewe

Adeolu er en dikter fra Nigeria i 40-årene med lærerutdannelse og universitetsutdannelse i historie. Han er separert med to barn. Han har alltid likt å studere historie, men etter å ha lært seg alt som er å lære om historie, ble han i stedet forelsket i litteratur. Nå har han kun hjerte for litteratur, hovedsaklig dikt og drama. Han har skrevet mange dikt selv og vil dele noen av dem med oss. Tusen takk til Adeolu!

The Journey

Wearily,   
We trudged  this
Blessed blighted landscape.

Hungry,
We thought we've found bread.
It was stone.

Thirsty.
We thought we found water.
It was mirage.

As we groped our way through the darkness of night.
We beheld a light.
A star?
 Alas, a meteor

The Tyrant Within

No quarter
From this master
On any matter.

A tyrant without, a man might flee,
But a tyrant within is a tyrant for aye.
'That lizard in the loo must not drown'
Midnight sleep suspended.
'That bleeding water main must be mended before you rest.'
Got to find the water man.
Dragged timorous me to the top of the mount,
And with burning bush fiat declared,
'This wayward world must be trained and tamed;'
The tallest of orders.

Saul got a blind start                
With an address in Damascus
Emmanuel has his faithful twelve
And the minus of a fifth columnist.            
Moses his Aaron, and the plus of a magic stick.
He aught to let me be,
Knowing my limited limits.
Lord! I know!
I know he won`t                                                                                     

A New Dance

I'll teach them a new dance.

A fusion of vision and rhythm.
Poetry of movement.
Soulful sound spurring sinews into motion.
Oh! Ill teach them a new dance

A dance of freedom,
No more zombie jigs
To voodoo drums.
No more marionette motions to the
Loot fattened fingers of political puppeteers.
Yes! I'll teach them a new dance!

Comradely choreography
To cut puppet  strings.
But... will they dance?

Addicted to the puppeteers opiate
Promises and juicy baits, will they dance this new dance?
Would they move to the rhythm of release
