Please, Tell Me Lord…

Please, Tell Me Lord…

Please, tell me Lord!
Tell me why people are too choosy.

They have forgotten
That McDonald is McDonald
And can never be Mr. Biggs

So they love good things
And wiseness
And want me to be wise
Like wisemen:
Walt Whitman,
Robert Browning
And John Bunyan

Because of that
They hate me
They hate to see my poetry
Comparing me each time_
My rhymes and rhythms_
With that of Frost,
Edgar Allan Poe,
And Jimmy Santiago

Some even say
They will love me
If I mimic Remi Raji,
John Pepper Clarke
Or Grace Akello of Uganda

God Forbid!
I will rather quit poetry
Than to mimic and disapoint
Sunshine and Bubbllinna from naijastories,
Ambrose Anthony from facebook,
Jennifer Kwagiri from twitter,
Karena Marier from Madrid
Plus other people who love me.
