The NS Roll Call

The NS Roll Call

Every day on this site it’s clear to see

The iconoclastic madness of a Kaycee

Or the uncontrollable randy banter

Of a chick chasing Jaywriter

And like a friend’s ping on a blackberry

You get a warm comment from a Gooseberry

Somewhere around the site’s corner

You’ll find a love-sick Seun Odukoya

Stuck like a leech to some Eletrika

Both Inseparable like skin and eczema

There’s a sweet smart one called Sybyllwhyte

Or is it Bubbllinna, names a bit tight to get right

And then there’s the terrifying Raymond

The site’s resident  horror James bond

Not to forget the sassy and serious enoquin

With ideas that itch like the infamous chloroquine

The intellectual bravura of a Tola Odejayi

Soo generous with points, I tell you walahi!

And behind the scenes there’s a Myne Whitman

Setting the stage for the writer in every layman

Let’s not forget Da Writing Engineer

The critic smoothly dissecting stories everywhere

Check out the simplicity of Tolu Oke

All I can say, the dude is A-okay!

The smile for a good read’s from Lawal Opeyemi

It’s a misnomer to see him as a literary enemy

Relaxed and upcoming gentle teewah

The more she writes, the more we see her

Like something refreshing, there’s a Sambright

Lighting up your efforts when its dark as night

 

So far so good, I’ve emptied my retinue

Do I end this brief epistle or do I continue?

  1. It’s very obvious you have preferences for certain people here which I don’t really care about; what I find a bit ‘unsettling’ is – of everything you could use to describe me…it has to be LOVESICK.

    I am a lot of things. Definitely NOT that.

    Interesting.

    I am not chick chasing but I love how it sounded so I’ll just pretend that’s me.

    I always love stuff like this. Makes me feel mushy on the inside.

    Well done man. In 2010, I always felt you were married to 2cute. Isn’t it funny?

    1. @Jaywriter …For real? Me & 2cute? lol….

      Thanks man…I like your response to this. After all this poem is based on our online personas which may be different from who we actually are. Besides its for fun, lets liven NS up a bit. I wish people would not take it too seriously or personally.

  12. Refreshingly different from the norm, I’d say. The title is apt too… You seem confident giving real-life individuals descriptions that they may not agree with you on. Am sure there’s a name for that, too. Nicely done.

    1. Trust me bro. E no easy like day oh!

    to share many a whisper or banter…

  25. Hey Afro, I totally loved this. I laffed so hard because you seem\ to really understand these people.
    Our online personas can be very different from the offline one, so I say I agree. Though, the ‘eczema’ thingy didn’t come off nice.
    Well done with this one.
    To continue or not depends on whether you still got material and you want to.

    1. Thanks Abby….I’ll take note of that!

  26. This was very interesting to read Truly I loved it.

    1. @chimzorom Thanks…I guess it helped you know who’s who on NS..

  27. The descriptions of the people are spot on, well done.

  28. Awesome, my brother. You got every one-stop personality and penned it down eloquently. You are a poet!

  29. waiting for the next one.
