The Song That Sings Me: A Poem By Kwaghkule Aondonengen Jacob
Before the sky will be bereaved
Of the lately smiles of the sun
Some lovely lyrics will stune
Deeply down my eardrum &
Plant some particles of euphoria
Roaming the valleys of my soul.
And when next I am dead
Sing no song of sorrowful verses
To mourn a living-dead like me
For even the Nightingales sing
Only of those who sleep & sigh.
Truly, when next I wake / if I can
May those broken pieces
Of a stenchy song be melted
Like a deliciously cooked iron
Into the hands of a blacksmith
For I feared much its melancholy.

"Along Came Love" by Zubair Hassan Baba, is what we might refer to as brilliant historical fiction. You may smile or sigh but surely, you will fall deeply in love with Zubair's storytelling style at the end of it all.

"...I am the voice of reason,
That dance not to the deceitful tone
Of political eloquence and propaganda
I am the voice above religious hypocrisy and sycophancy
Truth is my warrant and change is my cause..."
