[World Longest Poem] Dr Fixit (Stanza 2948 – 2950) By Godwin Inyang



For a being who caused havoc
For others and when chased by
The law to be reformed, he
Decides to take his life;
He alone stands guilty of
Fomenting unrest and being called
To order – his blood is
On his head if he harms
Himself with gun or knife.
Well, the troops wait for the fire
To quench for them to bring
Any of Mendit One’s
Remains for forensic test
To see if the genotype matches
What’s stored in our genes bank
And that’d put every new-breed
Soldier ant’s mind at rest.



DR FIXIT by Godwin Inyang is pushing ODYSSEY by Homer out of the current record as the third (3rd) World’s Longest Poem


Not long, the woman removes
The big pot she boils water
To make garri, pulls the wood out
And sprinkles cold water
To snuff the fire and save
Her wood. Quickly the chasing team
Nose around to pick and forward
To the forensic quarter
Any remains of Mendit One –
One troop on top of a plank
Sights something like a fang.
He moves closer, examines it
And announces his find
And the team ends
The chase without loss or pang.



BEING A NETIZEN: THE CHALLENGES AND THE GAINS (A special interview with Mr Godwin Inyang, the man with the longest poem in Africa)


Mendit One’s fang is
Marched back to base with
Our troops passing on the way
Some rebels limping home.
On arrival, the remains are
Taken to the medics who
Confirm the genes match
Mendit One’s – the camp
Takes a celebratory tone
Realizing the big threat
Is over for no enmity
Is as great as from one
Who knows you in and out;
It’s profound enmity when
An insider is the one
Lighting the way for others
To reach you from without.
