Two Poems By Joshua James Onuh
Poetry is not always about the aesthetics of concrete poems and the symphony of rhymed verses. Sometimes, it is didactic. Other times, it documents the Afro-wits and wisdom passed down by our ancestors. This is what Joshua James Onuh does with his poetry. These two poems are simple and beautiful.
