Maybe...

Woooww! For once, I wish I could be a corrupt politician and rig the entry game on my blog. The ones are I like to put up always have a hard time winning. From the last entry game, I really wished my Interview with corruption would win, but 'Maybe' won by a lead of one vote. If I cheat by counting wrongly, someone can go and count it on the comment section and If I cheat by removing someone's vote, the person would know when he/she sees that his/her comment/vote has been deleted. I think politicians all over the world, especially in Nigeria should adopt this method. Transparency is key.

I would like to say that Interview with Corruption is currently the first entry in the book. So for people that voted this, do not despair about not reading the animation article, it will be coming to your doorstep soon.

Let me warn you before you read, 'Maybe' is not like my usual retrospective poems, it one of the most ordinary poems you might ever come across, so don't expect too much. This is the edited version, so please, you are allowed to criticise and point out errors. Thanks

Here goes it

  4. Like you said it is an ordinary poem and it didn't disappoint in that respect but I can't fault your effort. If I'm allowed to add one more line it would be,
    'Maybe our attitudes would change and we could take action to bring the change we so much wish and desire.'

  5. Yaaayyyy, my vote: "Maybe" won. :-). Yes oo, transparency is key. If only our leaders can adopt that. I loved "Maybe Nigeria will be a top world country in the next ten years. Maybe we will finally have a clean and flawless leadership. A resounding AMEN to that. The ordinariness (if there's a word like that) of the poem is what makes it unique for me.

    Maybe's are like "if's" endless and all emcompassing. There is a saying in Trinidad, "If shit was sugar, farmers would not have planted cane."

    HONOR YOUR VOICE
    Please do me a favor, when you birth a piece of poetry do not weigh it down and deminish it and feather it with conditions, "Let me warn you before you read, 'Maybe' is not like my usual retrospective poems, it one of the most ordinary poems you might ever come across, so don't expect too much." Let the authencity of your voice revebrate through it, its meaning will translate to your readers.

    stay blessed.

  13. The last bit is kinda scary to me, lol
    And the 2nd bit has my fear in it concerning "my children"

  14. Hmmmm! The things we imagine sometimes. This poem hits the nail on the head! You spoke the thoughts of everyone, thoughts some are too scared to even speak out. If I should add my bit, maybe the entire world as we see it is just one funny movie and God holds the remote control and flicks channels at will. lol
