Biography: ...I recall the pernicious vent of inanity, an attorney of songs; a kiss of imaginative empathy that dwells occasionally in artistic isolation!

NEMBE

It's been long I see your face

The warmth of your cozy nights

Of breakless river bed

Streamside exchange

Down the sput of Kolo creek

Love of my ethical being

 

The long stroll 

To King Koko's Square

Mitigated stony roads

Of Nembe Bassambiri

Ogbolomabiri my blood

Where I have pledged my heart

To always return at your river side

 

I miss the hospitality of your clan

The Alagoas and perewinkle 

I long to eat kekefia

With lads from Ama-kalakala

And move my proud chest

Way up Edepie 

 

Funerals on Fridays

Take chuckling kids

Wine gorging men

I usually would stay up

To watch the rolling waist 

Of young riverine girls
