FEATURED: Two Manhyia Palace Royals And Their Impact On Jurisprudence In Ghana...



As Ojukwu Travels

His absent seems
the whole world
is depopulated.

Have you seen that
Dim Chukwuemeka
Odumegwu Ojukwu
has traveled and left us
with memories?

The grouse is whether
his people will stay without him
in this fruitless palace
that has refused
to comprehend the hint
of what he stands for actually denotes.

The burden of his sojourn
is now a guilt among those
who love-less him
when he was present
now mouthing of their
mountainous love for him.

Hope you are hearing them
singing your praise
to appease
their failure in some way?

Your journey is not the last
but the awakening
of your persona
within and beyond
the climate you knew.

Agu mba!
The melody of you still lingers
even when the music seems
to have come to an end.

Your end is endless tales
because your single journey
has become a statistics.

Here the poet sits
with acceptance and overwhelming love
of your tributes to justice and fairplay
sobbing and gnashing the teeth
because there will never be
a Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu
to say goodbye again.
