Is it too cumbersome to ask for more than crumbs?…

Mba! No! I have ambivalent feelings towards politicians and politics and refuse to be caught up in all the ambiguous promises that they make with excessive aplomb while in pursuance of their ambitions.SoCS badge 2015

Most times, I feel as though they simply sit in their big leather chairs, ensconced in their chambers where they think up how to ambush citizens with their assemblage of bombastic weapons of word contest, without concrete thoughts on how to achieve these promises and we are left bamboozled into an almost bemused or benumbed state that you begin to see grown men act like idiots.

The answers I would really like is a combination of disambiguated responses that will curb the constant combative state of today’s World that leaves us dumbfounded.

Is that such a cumbersome request? Are others not tired of the crumbs we get handed after they’ve assumed office and everything continues to remain in shambles? I am.

The prompt ‘mb’ that Linda chose to give us this weekend put me in an initial state of imbalance, but it gave me an opportunity to talk about some silent thoughts that have been going through my mind of late. I hope I did justice to her prompt 🙂

My Country of birth is in an economic and political quagmire at present and I recall all the sugar-coated promises made by the present government as they sought to unseat the incumbent President.

Not a single promise has been delivered to the citizenry and as a matter of fact, the State of the Nation is such to give someone sleepless nights and the senseless killings only got worse.

Quick glossary:

Mba – means ‘no’ in Igbo which is my native language.


 Below is my first just published Poetry Book “Out of the silent breath” which is available on Amazon and Smashwords.

When you buy my book, you support me in an invaluable manner.

She is amazing at describing love and life in her poems. She creates such beautiful images with her words. Truly, she is a talented writer and I’m so excited to have her poetry book and to continue reading through it.

  1. Excellent post. I think that most thoughtful citizens are sick of being treated as incidentals in a game from which we feel excluded. I will say this in defense of President Obama. Congress is the true seat of power in the United States. I don’t understand why people don’t understand that if they send a Democrat to the White House they must give him a democratic congress. For eight years the people have sent Obama a Congress that is so racist that it opposes his policies for no other reason than that he’s black. I can’t hold Obama responsible for this. If we send a progressive president a regressive Congress we will get regressive legislation.

    Thank you for a thoughtful post…

  2. You did the prompt justice indeed. Every country is in peril, unfortunately. When we seek answers from men and women who only seek power instead of God’s will for his people, we will never see the changes we so desperately need.

    • Ha, ha! Websters’ dictionary. I guess I am just upset with the politics going around that my heated part spoke. I am sorry for the late response, I have no idea how I missed this comment. Thank you Oneta
