Some are borne to be great, while
Some are nurtured to be great.
Greatness, an advertiser of human exploit,
Appealing to minds for a name.
Does greatness has two sides like a coin?

An immortality of Osha Molete just struck,
Inspiring eulogy and accolade among some human with tears:
A falling elephant!
A garrison commander!
A great yoruba man and a great leader of men!
He was our father, we have lost a rare gem!
Somebody who installed three Governors at different time
In Oyo State is a giant in politics!...
Does he deserve these?

Surely his absence will be missed owing to
His political comedy and installation.
Unfortunately exposing the weakness in our electoral system.
Perturbing over the audacity of his earlier words:
'Does it mean that i am not entitled to the patronage of the government, even
A cup of water, despite my effort in installing him'
This envinced his political ruggedness

To my mind, he was a great mortal,
Using peoples' weakness to seduce their control.
A go-getter!
And a reaper of human reasoning through his
Philantropic deeds for his egocentric purposes;
The down hearted people who advertised his trademark all for alms.

Pray that his shoes too heavier to wear in their
Sorrier state for subtle solace.

I didn't respond to the first poem because I had hoped someone would have adressed the unfinished nature of your work. I did you a dis-service. Please take this as constructive and from someone who wants you to be great at what you do. You're a good writer put the gramatical errors are so glaring that I can't stay with your work. Now, I am certainly a clumsy typist- when I comment- as all have seen but are kind in not bringing it up - especialy when I am writing/typing my thoughts. But I do look at my serious work over and over and polish it before I let it be seen.( To the point of obsession.) I will still miss things and that is why there are editors and peers. There is a work ethic in all art that makes what we do, as artists, worthwhile. It seems to me that you have a wonderful mind and you write easily but I think you need to go back and look at your work and edit. Unpolished gems don't get attention. Polish up your work so we can be dazzled. We are 'all' here to improve our skills.
Bless you.

Thanks for your advice and concern. This is a sign that you believe in my ability and you want to be instrumental to the progress of my work. There will be an improvement in subsequent publication.
