With grave consequences

Wreaking havoc of unimaginable proportions.

The wild is in a fit of convulsion

And the rainforests are vanishing fast with frightening rapidity

Pushing species of wild flora and fauna to the brink of extinction.

In confusion, some are running round the globe aimlessly

As our earth in permanent chaos is about to burst into flames.

THE POETRY OF JOHN ODEY ADUMA

      (Dedicated to Tomorrow)

 

By JOHN ODEY ADUMA

 

Vuuuuu! Vuuuuu! Vuuuuu!

Vuvuzela, spirit of the next age,

You who awaken our kindred spirit

And unite us in the bond of brotherhood,

Unifier of our diversity,

To you we owe the excitement and elixir of life,

To you we owe our strength and power,

Life wire of our communal brotherhood,

By you we echo the past in the present

And the future in the present

So, would I to the battlefield

Where Israel and Hezbollah

In show of strength are staring at each other

Eyeball to eyeball with each boasting of

Annihilating the other from the surface of the earth:

“…multiply, and replenish the earth….,” Genesis 1:28.

 

Just caught COVID or recovering from one,

Having lung COVID or not,

Still in tears or they are just drying up

After the loss of a relative,

Generally bereaved or not,

Suffering from COVID or other ailments,

Diagnosis postponed or just carried out,

Under the knife or above it,

New birth or death,

Mourning or rejoicing

We ‘ll get there!

DEAR LORD, PLEASE GIVE ME ONE NIGERIA OR I DIE

Fall apart, die apart.

 

Oh Lord God Almighty,

Let this be my one and only cry to thee, even this season:

Give me ONE NIGERIA or I die!

 

 

 

 

E GO BETTER-O!

 

GOOD MORNING FELLOW, NIGERIANS…HAPPY

 

ANNIVERSARY,

 

AND MAY GOD BLESS OUR NIGERIA, IN SPITE OF.

 

NA ME-O, UNU BROTHER, JOHN ODEY ADUMA.

THE PEACEMAKER'S PLEDGE

BY JOHN ODEY ADUMA, PUBLISHER AND BRITISH CHEVENING SCHOLAR, UNITED KINGDOM

Nigeria will not break up...Nigeria will never, ever break up! But Nigeria will prevail!

Fellow Nigerians, hold thou it neither tight nor loosely, but handle thou it with great care.

Be ye therefore, wise as a serpent...

...And peaceful as doves!

 

I am a person of peace

I don't fight, I don't kill,

I can get angry, I can disagree with you,

But it won't go down with the sun

I am a lover of peace, I hate violence.

 

I don't kill because life is precious to God

I am peaceful; I am not violent

This life is given to me as a prize;

So I will do all to preserve it.

 

I won't spill blood,

So don't approach me to kill

Anybody for money

Because I just won't do it for any price!

 

You may not even go elsewhere

Because I'm not sure you will get someone

To kill your political opponent,

Or business partner,

Or whosoever you disagree with.

 

I will not attack anyone violently,

Life is precious to God,

I'll rather donate blood than shed blood.

 

I will not steal, kill, maim and destroy,

I'll rather love

And do all to enhance life on earth

For the upliftment of mankind

And the glory of God.

 

This is my pledge, this is my resolve,

So help me God.

Inside the London Underground tube in the hot Summer of July 2006

 

How come that everyone

Has suddenly turned to a walking volcano

Flaring up at the slightest touch,

Barking at each other on the tube

Like the Alsatian bulldog

And behaving like a cat and dog?

The sky fell on Lebanon

And smashed her to shreds

And so the sky fell;

SERIES: THE POETRY OF JOHN ODEY ADUMA (FROM THE TREE BY THE RIVER)

 

As you run amok like a wounded lion

Bombarding Lebanon with your missiles

And US-made cluster bombs,

The world is asking, and posterity too is asking:

Is this disproportionate offensive

To avenge two of your soldiers

Captured by Hezbollah?
