Lagos flood issues
'Arroyo: Flash Flood' by John Unterecker
The canyon walls close in again,
slant light a silver glare in brown water.
The water is only knee deep, but when the boy reaches the
   boulders—
purple dark, silvered by the smash of brute water—
water will tear at his chest and arms.
The walls of the canyon are brilliant in late light.
They would have glared red and gold for his drowned camera:
splashed blood to his left, to his right a wall of sun laddered
   with boulders.

Where are the Kings

by Olulu, the King not from Zulu

Where are they?

Let me at them.

I want them, and I want them now,

I pray, “God grant me patience”,

But He should hurry.

A Tribute to Professor Chinua Achebe

It is Morning yet on Creation Day
Our Hopes and Impediments
Have kept us No longer at Ease
At Home and Exile
Scattered are we, like the Anthills of the Savannah.

Abraham by Chris Ezeani

I will tell you
a tale of flesh and
spirit mixed,
angels, mighty feats
and a rhyme
to make it sweet.
I will take you,
east,
through desert roads
to a land now called
Egypt;
in the time of Pharaohs,
when Abraham
his tent pitched.
