PROF TAM DAVID WEST: Adieu to a People’s Professor – A Poem

 

 

Professor Tam David-West

 

By Yahaya Balogun | balooy2k@gmail.com | Arizona, USA

Our humble Virologist
And quintessential Prof. T.D. West,
A beautiful writer and essayist
Is now our gentle sleeping giant!

 

 

He spoke truth to power.
A truthsayer to the evil man at Minna!
He was rewarded with a framed
Gold Wristwatch of evil genius!
He triumphed over naija maradona.
He was our muse, a role model.

Prof gave us the wider
The worldview of the world.
The mind of our man was rich
With erudition.
But our earthly mediator gave
Us the space in it to love one another!

We shall outlive the callousness
Of death!
To live in the beautiful memory
Of our earthly public serviceman,
And a man of peace is not to expire!
The lives you beautifully touched
Are currently heartbroken!
Your beautiful voice of reason
Echoes in our collective minds.

Wow! A beautiful flower has withered!
Death! We owe you debt, but
We owe ourselves moral credit!
Adieu! Prof. TDW to all peaceful
Students at citadels of learning!
We will sorely miss your peaceful
Professorial mien!
