It is important to note that Originality and copyright would be taken with importance. If at any point in time, your poem is found to be someone else's, you would be totally disqualified without any recognition of poems you must entered earlier.

For all members far away from Nigeria, there would be a substitute for the prizes.

Scury, I'll get something for you no matter what. But, write first, then dream of winning before dreaming of collecting.

Don't worry, win and it's yours. Mukina however may not be in the country then. So, I may be compelled to deny you of that as I don't want to encourage cheating. lol!

LOST WORLD!



and so it was in a time long gone
when men and women of brown skin, toiled
stretching their taut backs to enrich the dark soil
with harvest of crops and an abundance of oil

when young children sat at the feet of the old
imbibing words of wisdom, as their stories unfold
carefully raised up in a proud and hardworking mould
always with smiles on their lips and a heart never cold

alas darkness came in the guise of the light
blackmen forced to believe they're inferior to white
who raped our land and enslaved our might
cos cunning and guile.... we knew not how to fight

generations have passed, but the struggle lives on
in this mordern world, we are the last seed of zion
we must seize our destiny...and our pride restore!
make an everlasting tribute to our dead, lost world!




ok, dis one's on some conscious tip! :)

I won for October, so, I loaded the credit, and now that no one is but Magneto has posted for November, he might end up being the sole winner.

Anyone good enough to challenge him.

Where's this Penthome guy self?

Mekoyo, don't tell me you've not finished filling your pen with ink.
