The Creek is dirt-- An attitude of un cleanliness--- The Creek is a dead sea--- Neither fish nor humans can live on it-- The Creek is now a caricature of its once bubbling looks-- When the Creek people farm and live on its rich treasures A King Kong once lived there-- He once lived a desolate life in the Creeks-- Then he started beating a drum a war-- He raised a Creek army-- He puts his gun on the food basket-- His gun sheds blood, tears and sorrow-- He kidnapped for a ransom-- He laid his arms on a Silver plate-- He filled his food plate full-- He becomes an overnight money man-- No more overnight bus hike-- He quickly forgets the Creek long suffering-- He forgets the labor of heroes past-- The Creek King Kong builds a Castle in the air-- A prodigal son brings no good-- The Creek is still lifeless and dirty--- ~Murtaza Micky Yusuf~I dedicate this poem to Kenule Ken SaroWiwa~The Late Ogoni1 of blessed memory--

Change, Changi and Shangiliti They are liars Ah! Men are liars The mouth of a liar sheds no blood His mouth tastes so sweet as honey Until he Changed it Until he Changed our minds He shortchanged the people's expectations He suddenly becomes an Identified Flying object(IFO) But no more money to feed the needy He Changed his promise many times Like a chamelion would Change its colors Then like a Leopard he never Changed its spot Our cities in total blackout Water has dried up in our homes Our roads are a paralysis of long queues He rejoices too much because he kills a goaliath He thinks not about the jobless army of youth He thinks not about our girls Is this Change,Changii or Shangiliti ~Murtaza Micky Yusuf~ I dedicate this poem to KONGI~Professor OluWole Akinwande Soyinka

CHIBOK GIRLS-- 500 Days After.......


500 dreadful days gone by* My CHIBOK is still missing* My eyes still stared in disbelief* My mouth is all wide agape* What a pity* What a people* My beautiful full blooded girl-child* Snatched In the dead hour of the Night* As the big noses snore in Abuja* And the Sons of Gun were lying low* If they don't care about Nationhood* Wont they care about Motherhood* If they think CHIBOK girls are Intangible* Think about their right to life and dignity* Michelle Obama feels for my CHIBOK* Malala Yousafzai cries* Mother Theresa turned in her grave* Oby and Hadiza wept for my CHIBOK* 500 days of fears and horror* 0f ceaseless pains and agony* Bring back CHIBOK Girls Now and Alive* -Murtaza Micky Yusuf

Obama-- A prophesy fulfilled


On Tuesday, October 16, 2012, I wrote a feature titled the prophetic President Barack Obama. It was at a time president Obama, was seeking a second term. At a time many people, so many political analysts turned their books inside out and push their pen dry, and then pronounced that President Obama, will not be voted for the second term. America was in a huge debt, economy was neither here nor there and the rate of unemployment was on the increase. Though America has killed Osama bin Laden, the Al-Qaeda were still destructive in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Boko Haram was being festered in Nigeria, and the future of an Obama presidency looked gloomy....... **** To be CONTINUED-------------- ### On September 9, 2015-- You will also read on Amazon.com-- Chief M.K.O.
