Beneath these lilies

At 1149 hours, the magnificent office block stands grand and dominant in the middle of the compound like the statue of an ancient Greek goddess. Its chic silver reflective glasses flow down the entire complex reflecting off the sun like a fairy god mother.  My office on the sixth floor overlooks the pond below to …

‘Spicey’ – a very short story

We have men and we have heroes, then there is this other one. His name is Spicey. Spicey was a witch-a very bad one. He was a very short man, just like his short story here. He also enjoyed a very short existence because he died; sooner than expected. Not of cancer but by reasons …

My Easter wishes go to this fallen man; Mr. Cockey Gallinaceous

I have always wanted to get over my fears. Some I have, some I am still dealing with. There are particular fears that I am too embarrassed to disclose; not even to the closest of friends. For instance, it has not been made easy for a man to come clean and declare his fear for …

It has been three months since you got to the city and life has been amazing; apart from how people look at you every morning at work. They always look disturbed; you do not know by what. When your memory serves you right, life in the village was not all this interesting; things are way …

To what future do you belong?

It’s the 21st century and I must say, we are young and we are one lot of lucky bastards (and so they tell us) huh! Unlike our ancestors, we live in a technological era which obviously came right after the great industrial revolution (not sure if we had that here) thanks to exploitation of the …

Oh hail H.I.M the tribal king!

The tribal ‘king’ is here, fanatics and sycophants are drunk will illicit brew and celebration. Anticipation, euphoria and political tension fills the air, tribal sentiments are being chanted in uniform rhythm as if by a professional choir in a well orchestrated fashion. I can’t help but question my ability to catch up with my tribe’s …

Face your fears and fight for your dreams!

Man is the master of thought, moulder of character, the maker and shaper of condition, environment and destiny. Most men fail, not due to lack of education or agreeable personal qualities, but by lack of dogged determination and lack of dauntless will. Situations, even bad situations such as bankruptcy, divorce, death and economic recession cannot …
