“GET UP”

  1. ♦Girl, Gear Up, Get Up and Go!
    This is, indeed, a time of terrible pain and anguish for all worldwide. The Corona Virus, alias COVID 19, King Kong of King Kongs, Universal COLONIAL Virus and the most brutal, vicious and mean Colonizer in all human history, has declared total war on all mankind. It has, just about five months of howling and bullying its way into town, spread an unprecedented dragon dragnet of deaths, fears, tears, gloom, hunger, anger, frustration, anxiety, confusion, paralysis and open-ended stagnation everywhere.
  2. It is apperent that in perilous times such as this, the female segment of humanity is very often hardest hit. We implore all females, our mothers, our wives, sisters, our friends in all levels of life and above all, our female pupils/students in all school levels , not to be dicouraged. Let them hold on to their God-given visions, dreams and to their unyielding trust in God. Let them emulate the all-time great females. Indeed, we are all born to stand, And you will surely stand.
  3. Once again, kindly be encouraged and inspired by this poem, Girl, Gear Up, Get Up and Go!, also culled from my upcoming poetry volume, We Are Not Defeate Girl, Gear Up, Get Up and Go!
  4. Girl, sit up and look up.
    Don’t stoop or sulk or sop
    Stand erect, ne’er hook up
    Take the jug, fill your cup!
    Girl, gear up, get up and go
  5. You are made to be up
    Girl, you can be the hub
    Demons may try to rob
    But with Him none can stop
    Girl, gear up, get up and go!
    Sanballats* may try to disrupt
    Vermins may try to corrupt
    The world may try to rope
    Fear insists there’s no hope
    Girl, gear up, get up and go!
  6. Girl, entreat none for chance
    There’s room, for all ready to dance
    Prance and prate not range to range
    Success ne’er Loafer and Timid embrace
    Girl, gear up, get up and go!
  7. Girl, shun the shyster
    Fear neither stormy weather
    Nor the wolf’s roaring laughter
    Fear naught, be a true hunter
    Girl, gear up, get up and go!
  8. Girl, be charmed with ardent hunger
    For your heart’s utmost desire
    Perspire like the Messiah**
    Born in lowly loathsome manger
    Girl, gear up, get up and go!
  9. Girl, let none waylay and rob
    Your match and march to the top
    Think Mary mum of the Saviour***
    And Mary, the daughter of Slessor****
    Girl, gear up, get up and go!
  10. Girl, entreat none for chance
    Stand up, take the floor and dance
    Like Esther who feared not to perish
    Plunge for what you relish and cherish!
    Girl, gear up, get up and go!
  11. Girl, entreat none for chance
    Stand up, seize the floor and dance
    Take the rod of pearly Ruth****
    ‘T will bloom your cherished fruit!
    Girl, gear up, get up and go!
