An Ode To The Literary Section Guys by Jcob(m): 7:40am On Dec 24, 2009
When I see the way your creative ability is displayed on the section
It makes my brain to be tensed up
A section filled with intelligent writers
Logical and rational in all ways
I took a stroll to have a bite of the creative cake
It's no joke for a lazy bone
Just because you need a good tone
Not the way of an empty cone
I got thrilled when I see threads with fictional prowess of a divine entity
A section to unwind
An abode of Creative Chics
With audacity to rhyme words
The urbanity cannot be compared
Talk of the section that makes you tick
Never a dull moment with peeps in the house
Love fiction or fact
A house full of all
I wanted a taste of the verses
But not by might
It's more of a talent
Sharpened with skills
Show me a man that cannot put words together
And I would show you 10 men that do it better
A home for the men of style and vigour
Doing things in a Swagger way
With you I pitch my tent.

Happy Xmas to the Literary peeps. . . . and feel free to post comments.

@Jcob, brother, your piece is excellent. Don't have enough time now, would have given it a critique cover!

Inaugurating the Scrolls

Upon the vast wings of the West Winds
I send my scrolls across to my brothers
Onshore –poets!
As I stand upon the shoulders of mountains
I see them spring up in laughter
Laughter full of walls
Walls full of hands
Hands that write the thoughts
Of the poet in the minds of them offshore
And the shadows of the sea rise in response
The blue waters gather themselves to feast
And from her far hut, she hastens
To the ground –the sun, and lights it up
I could see smiles in silhouettes of stars
Embracing the feast with open arms like a long lost lover
And from where I stood
I could nod to scrolls planted everywhere
And with her sprite bright smiles, the sky chairs the feast
A great fast, I must tell you!
The generous heart of the West Wind
Has left no thoughts immersed
Even hearts afar off
Limp and give a shout
And now, brothers
Shall we have it again!
