THE CHIEF JUSTICE AND THE LAW

Is it that easy to be a graduate?
That passed through the “Law” gate?
Where they read the good and fake,
Where they give all it takes,
Reading and studying than their mates,
Making the corners and libraries their base,
To be eloquent in issues like debate.
Be it a private, federal or state,
No varsity treats the “Law” abase,
And the law school has no smiling face

The young graduate and barrister of law,
Tries all the best in the court of law,
Being meticulous in actions and words,
Till he becomes one day, a judge.
And luckily, his jingling may sound loud,
And becomes the head, chief of all.
The chief justice, in place of God ,
But much lower in office than God.
For the laws are not his own,
He is also bound by the laws.

Yes, he has his own flaws.
His immunity may be so tough,
While his office sweet him sort of,
That he take sides in the rule of law.
Wait for him till he leaves the job,
He may sleep behind the prison doors.
And if no sanity remain in the court of law,
There is a Chief Justice whose laws are pure,
Our Creator and the Everlasting God.
His judgments respect no one at all.

MEN ARE FUNNY THESE DAYS

These days our youths are so funny
All their thoughts are based on money
Thinking all are as sweet as honey
Making a “god” out of the tummy
And to Internet, most became nanny
While the youth remained that funny
The adults are also not a dummy
Proving to be daddies and mummies
Even though some are now grannies
They thought God is meant for the babies
And the church for the lowborn
Pure consciousness in them was gone
Praising morals in place of God
But the children are confused thereof
Having to choose either God or work
For we all run after good luck
And so I pray to you, Dear Lord
Turn our hearts again to Your Word
We’ll no longer be that “funny” in this world
But each other’s brethren in God’s ward
Where Jesus is the master of us all
That all together we’ll build a wall
And lift this nation than the mountain top

NOT AS EASY AS SAID – HOPE

Hope is not as easy as said
It is a demonstration of faith
And waiting for things of no end
Building Foundation for things not seen

Like someone struggling to make his day,
Working, saving to buy a phone
On the morrow, laboured to get a card
But soon he found ‘the battery’s low’

Plugging to the main is just in vain,
‘Cos the main is off the grid,
And the gen is dry of fuel,
Cry and tears would add to pain

Cheers, my brother it’s not the end
It’s not by power and not by might,
The Grace to stay is just the fuel,
Soon, your dream would turn to real

Having all I want is just today,
Waiting for so long is hope delayed,
Though, the day is just behind,
My hope in Christ will not defer

Purely Naija – Baba God I hail

Baba God I hail you
For inside all the gbege I found myself
You tanda gidigba for my side

When na “Pencil Light” blessing I asked for
Na “Big Daddy” blessing you take nak me
You give my aprokos big blow for mouth

When my enemies think say I be “Baby boy”

Na so you make my name “Discussion continue”
And all I get, Baba God na your hand work them be!

When the enemies join hand to delete me
Baba God bring them to my domot and give them meal
So dem dof their caps and joined me to sing
Baba God na your hand work them be!

HAPPY New Year FROM US – My New Year Prayers

In the reminiscence of the past years
While in much struggles and frequent yearns
And to questions of my needs I hardly say yes
Till I bowed to God and humbly learn

So, in this New Year I quickly say
Oh Lord of mercy, hear me as I pray
In the depth of poverty, give me all I need
And in my fullness, save my heart from pride

In my failures, give me Your heart
When fear comes, make my boldness fat
And in my fatness, be the all I have
So, in your kindness I’ll burst out in laugh

Each time I pray, hear my voice Oh Lord
In my pursuits, teach me to love
Never to be partial, each time I judge
For that is your attribute, Oh precious God

And finally, when the month count twelve
Let testimonies fill me and where I dwell
And let it be countless, the souls I’ve helped
That in your garden of grace, I’ll gently dwell

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU. WE WISH YOU BETTER DAYS IN 2018

JESUS! THE A AND THE ZEE

Celebrating the BIRTH of JESUS………….

************************

Jesus the ‘everything’, the A and the Zee
He came around so that we can see
Even each day as we make our tea
That the sweat heaven is much for real
Only for the people with forgiven sins

So heavy as the cross, even without a reel
Made for Jesus to be killed for real
On the pathway to a promise fulfilled
Putting His spirit in our hearts with zeal
Carefully watching each day as we eat our meal

And much more in our thoughts and deeds
Being so careful with the way we feel
As we struggle hard, just to take the lead
Not to make a fool of the righteousness seed
And give a room for sins and greed

For the life will fly away without a hint
And the body useless, deaf to the pinch
Thrown at it by the multitude’s speech
Even if their voices could reach their peak,
The gone away soul shall move no inch

And afterwards on eternity Street
Just at the point where two streets meet
The one to hell and the other through the Cross’ feet
While the sinners cry in hell with the demons’ beat
With Christ are the Saints, and their joyous weep.
************************

SO POWERFUL!

As we celebrate JESUS………….

************************

There is power in Jesus’ name
Much more than an incredible game
More influential than the greatest fame
What else can be compared with Jesus’ name

So much power in Jesus’ name
So strong that no one can tame
Easily restoring the legs of the lame
What else can be compared with Jesus’ name

Much more power in Jesus’ name
Taking away the believer’s shame
On the cross where he bore the shame
What else can be compared with Jesus’ name

So much more power in Jesus’ name
Not minding the guiltless blames
Thrown at Him by the adversaries’ claim
What else can be compared with Jesus’ name
************************

MY GREATEST PAIN

My tummy vibrates, radiating pains
All across the body through the veins
Just in the reminiscence of the rainbow paint
And all I could think of is to have a tail
Which could waggle my body and remove the pain

Or what benefits do I have in all my gains
With the bulk of people, of whom I trained
If my precious body suddenly becomes untrained
Lying down helpless; the world of vain
While the funeral others prepare, not minding the rain

So I discovered it is not by much gain
Nor the smartness of one’s brain
Or the jurisdiction of one’s reign
Could set man free from the hell’s chain
Binding him with sins again and again

Soon I discovered a King, great in His reign
Who had left His own throne with just an aim
To free everyone from the devil’s chain
And carry us all in His salvation train
Till the Kingdom we see, where the saviour reigns

JESUS IS THE KING; THE KING OF KINGS!

PSALM ONE: Planted by the Rivers

With leaves wide and fresh, I am drought free
Bearing beautiful fruits for all to see
By the river side planted, a glorious tree
Just as it is in Psalm one verse three

With the Lord’s blessings I became full
Avoiding the counsels of sinners and scornful
But the law of the Lord is my best tool
Just as it is in Psalm one verse one and two

But the ungodly man flies as chaff
Not having direction nor compass in graph
For their seat was lost with the children of life
Just as it is in Psalm one verse four and five

Unending glory paints the righteous seat
For his end shall be where Jesus sits
While the ungodly mourn in great defeat
Just as it is in Psalm one verse six
