Poem: Nostalgia

Posted by:

*Nostalgia

 

I feel it slowly

Like the dawn of a new day

The transfer of  batton

From one generation to another.

 

Within the deep recesses of my heart

I feel nostalgic

What happened to us

We only use to play and run

 

The worries though afar off

Are now drawing closer by the day

Some have already arrived

And are seated heavily

On our cringing eyebrows!

 

Look there goes Amaka

Who back in the day walked

As though there were springs in her legs

Now she hurries to buy things-

Diaper and baby milk.

 

What of Chiboy

Oh he is ...

OUR DEMOCRACY

 

Our Democracy is a vindictive lover,

You hail it; they grease your palm

You hate it; they come for you.

Silence is our best friend now.

 

Our Democracy is a sharp axe,

It falls on heads; it falls on sleeves

Oshiomole is gone; the Sarduana is dethroned

Who else is left to get the axe?

 

Our Democracy is in love with Bokoharam,

They set us up and murder us at will

The perpetrators are now repentant good boys.

They are going to London to see the Queen!

 

Our democracy is a ...

Creative Writing Tips

 

The purpose of a dialogue

 

🍎The reason your play or prose is boring is because you think dialogue is used to exchange pleasantries. In real life maybe, but in creative writing, your dialogue should be intentional. Cut out the pleasantries and give your audience some action. The action should tilt towards:

 

a) developing the story

b) developing the character

 

The audience want to know about your characters through their actions and words.

 

🍓 The quality of a good dialogue is ...

Exorbitant Expectations of Marital Rights in Igbo land- Nigeria

On the issue of late marriage and marital rights in some parts of Nigera

Lilian Ohanedozi

Let’s be honest here:

 

One should marry when they are ready for it. Having said that, let me also add that

 

It’s good to marry early and have children you can take care of. There’s no joy in delegating that responsibility to your parents unless they are thrilled to do it. If you are not ready for marriage then hold on.

 

Still we would not fail to address the ...
