A life of strange ironies

Burial happening at one side of a compound

Marriage at the other end of the same compound

Men wept for five minutes and crossed over to laugh and feast for five minutes .

A sober drunkard

Is a drunkard robbed of his bottles

If he doesn’t find his way to the winery

He will still be drunk in his imaginations.

Remove nudity from the face of the earth

Install morality in its place

A voyeur will still be a sinner

He peeps in his mind and dreams.

Men do not steal because they lack

Neither is a harlot made because there is lust

Is a snake evil because it was tutored

Wasn’t he is born a snake so all he knows to be, is being a snake?

The odd in men’s life is in the deep of what they give ear to

The character they exhibit is in what they told themselves

When evil has vomited its deviltries into a vessel

A change is only possible through an unusual miracle of the Leopard swapping spots for lines with the Zebra.

Take the mud from the pig

Just makes the pig a clean pig.

Asking the fish about what happened in the forest

Is as foolish as asking the wall gecko about what happened in the deep sea.

Yes Daddy, you are right. No matter how a man pretends, one day the real being in him will show.

    He may pretend, but no man can hide from his shadow.

You can not hide your inner self for long. With time, the real person or thing will show.
