Collins Aiterebhe

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

ELECTION DAY

Until today alone

Power is never in the thumb

Today we reach the carrefour 

Where decisions of our lives

Are made in discreet


We gather in queues 

To redesign destinies

Of us and posterity unborn 

Unyielding in change 

Our very essence in life

Is now a thumb away


Today we gather

Not for piecemeals or nuts

Wisely for the change

Wisely even more

For the attainment

Of hopes and aspirations


On the day Jacob met the angel

He egged on his robe

To acquire the blessings of his life

Eight years is long

Stand affirm soul brother

Stand and vote


Against tribe; against bribe

Against sufferings that abide

Turn this malignant tide

To stop coming and going

Like Ogbanje to our land!
