Dear woman, notice you the dinosaur?
Like fire-belching dragon he is no more.
And curiosity buffs still hunt their bones
That had hid in deep earth and beneath stones.
After them still live their he-dinosaurs,
Whose scarred footprints scourge your weaker landscape
With rape and beatings that beset our shores,
And they will nature’s next selection scrape.
But he-dinosaurs are yet on the run,
Nor must we wait till nature’s course is done,
But hoist the law where’re their cleaved hooves tread,
Till their bones lay as their ancestors’ laid.
Stand proud, oh woman, like the queen you are.
Now, may we your un-bonded talents share?

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Review Request (Direction): 
What did you think of my title?
How was my language use?
What did you think of the rhythm or pattern or pacing?
How does this theme appeal to you?
How was the beginning/ending of the poem?
Is the internal logic consistent?

As I am from the UK and one of the older school
my knowledge of the way you speak and write becomes a little different from say the Nigerian way.
But as poets go it is a good piece.
Can I ask you to go through our poets and if you can seek out more from your country..
Then ask them to form an African group where your poetry can be appreciated more.
The time Zone for Nigeria is near the same as the UK
so we could also join in with many things to broaden the knowledge of other peoples ways.
Start a blog where all your poets can sign in,
There are so many of your people that need to be heard in the poetry and writing circles,
Yours Ian T ( Yenti or Sparrow)
