Mayuku Omeresanine


Undulating green hills surround this town;
Frightful to natives in the past and even now.
The hills slopping gently up and down in a continuous stretch;
isolating it from neighbouring towns.
The original people of the land with footstep pattern galloping in adjustment to
the hills.

The earth made of rough red stone harsh to foot-wears and leg alike.
This is Nsukka with its cold wind;
The trees atop the mountain of a darker shade of green than the mountain.
The cry of the vegetation fauna active and loud.

Mayuku Omeresanine is 25 years old and has just graduated from the University of Nigeria where he studied Economics. He lives with his Mom and siblings in Warri, Nigeria. He likes reading novels and history books. When he is free he watches Football matches.
