THE POOR IS RICH, AND THE RICH IS POOR

Allow me to sound like King Solomon for a little while. There is a pattern which I have seen under the sun; at least in my neighborhood, and it never ceases to amaze and baffle me simultaneously. My neighborhood is a blend of the rich and the poor, and their pattern of living is very ironical, in comparison to what is expected considering their financial position. The poor, and there are quite a number of them, seem to be the ones enjoying life and living “lavishly”. They blast their music loudly from their stereos, entertaining the whole street, and they […]

AGE IS NOTHING BUT A NUMBER?

You most likely might have heard the phrase at least once in the course of living out your daily life ‘age is nothing but a number’ and perhaps might have even begun to see some element of sense in the statement too. People argue that the statement holds truth, and for some certain situations, that statement would be considered good news. People choose to believe there is an element of reason in this statement, but then if you’re talking of reasoning, let’s do some of that. In recent times, the phrase has been adopted by a lot of parties, and […]

LAWFULLY WEDDED WIFE(short story)

The day she met him was like every other frustrating Monday, and she was already having a bad day by the time it was getting to twelve in the afternoon.  The passengers that boarded the flight that she was a hostess on seemed to have all woken up on the bad side of their bed and then sworn to vent it all on her. After all, that’s what she was being paid for; to entertain their rubbish and smile like the safety of the flight depended on it. By one pm she had been in two flights to Lagos from […]

THE INTERVIEW WITH ADAM AND EVE

I am interviewing Adam…and Eve. Yes, you read right, and no you’re not wrong; I really mean the first man and his wife; the man and woman who introduced the concept of wearing clothes to conceal ‘nakedness’, the man who named all the animals, the woman who was formed from the rib of a sleeping man, the man who was formed out of dust, or better still, the man and woman who ate the damned fruit and drove humanity out of bliss and into suffering. Isn’t it blue how all you ever hear of Adam is how he ate a […]

WHAT OTHER SIGNS ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?

Yesterday, sometime during the middle of the night, I had finished reading some new articles and write-ups as is my habit, and then I proceeded to log on Truth Zombie’s social media accounts to interact with the online community and the growing fan base as I usually do every night. In the midst of these interactions, one of the things I do is to reach out to more people with the hope of getting to make them regular Truth Zombie readers, and my intentions on this particular night wasn’t so much different. Honestly, I am a bit reluctant to tell […]

SURROUND YOURSELF WITH DIFFERENT VERSIONS OF YOU

While what you’re about to read has probably been preached over a million times, and you’ve probably heard it more than once in your lifetime, I’m still going to write on it; hopefully in a different kind of way that would pass the message across as new. Many people want to be exceptional, do great things, become legends and heroes, but oftentimes they make the same mistake of surrounding themselves with the wrong people. They get attached to persons who only want to be normal (in the wrong sense of normalcy). They make friends with people who just want to […]

A DROP OF RAIN AND BAD NEWS(short story)

As I lay still under the comfort of the darkness, reminding myself to blink occasionally, I wondered which one was having more effect on me; the loud noises that came from the frenzy splattering of the rain on my rooftop, or the replay of the voice of my best friend in my head, telling me that he just discovered that the two people he called parents for the last nineteen years of his life, weren’t his real parents. You see, this is why I don’t like rain in any sense of it. It seems to intensify my emotions and leave […]
