BECOME AN INTUILLECTUAL – A POEM BY PROF BEN EZEOHAGWU

BECOME AN INTUILLECTUAL

become

an intuillectual,

is no gainsaying,

but a wise advice,

such a mind,

a priceless treasure,

inspiring, transforming

dreams into realities,

no longer remain

an intellectual,

a mind,

Soundingly tinct brass,

stunted, without warmth,

lifeless, archaic.

 

become

an intuillectual,

is no gainsaying,

but a wise advice,

such a mind,

a living legend,

lawful, fulfilling

purpose of life,

no longer remain

an intellectual,

a mind,

purposelessly wasted breed,

wasteful, without direction,

valueless, depraved.

 

become

an intuillectual,

is no gainsaying,

but a wise advice,

such a mind,

a genuine seeker,

courageous, open-minded,

for the truth,

no longer remain

an intellectual,

a mind,

narrow-mindedly opinionated aberrant,

caustic, without reasoning,

neurotic, dense.

 

become

an intuillectual,

is no gainsaying,

but a wise advice,

such a mind,

a responsible leader,

awakening, developing

gifts of being,

no longer remain

an intellectual,

a mind,

insensibly dreamless shadow,

corrupt, without productivity,

faceless, decaying.

 

become

an intuillectual,

is no gainsaying,

but a wise advice,

such a mind,

an outstanding inventor

resolving, providing

solutions to challenges,

no longer remain

an intellectual,

a mind,

fancifully masked caricature,

pompous, without feelings,

garrulous, empty.

 

become

an intuillectual,

is no gainsaying,

but a wise advice,

such a mind,

an inestimable jewel,

guiding, uplifting

society for values,

no longer remain

an intellectual,

a mind,

brilliantly supposed façade,

materialistic, without sensibility,

greedy, unconcerned.

 

become

an intuillectual,

is no gainsaying,

but a wise advice,

such a mind,

a wise influence,

living, fulfilling

life of upbuilding,

no longer remain

an intellectual,

a mind,

disguisedly outdated trash,

indolent, without innovation,

scheming, frivolous.
