TASUESS AHEAD school anthem

January 18, 2009 at 8:59 pm (Uncategorized)

This anthem was written while I was vice principal of Tai Solarin University of Education Secondary School, Ijebu Ode, Ogun State, Nigeria. It was adopted as the school song and  remains.


All of nature rise to hear

The song of TASUESS’ young

We take our place in honour’s roll

And stand our feet in virtue’s fold

Our mission we loud declare

To drink in knowledge and to serve

TASUESS will move ahead

To the waterfall of knowledge

To the green fields of wisdom

Where they that hunger and thirst

Will be satisfied with knowledge

And shed light in every darkness

The vision of our founders

Throb in our hearts daily

They spur us to greater heights

Till we reach knowledge’s peak

Never once looking back nay

Till we find, till we conquer

Nostalgia’s Got Me

Do you ever feel it?
Do you ever wish those days would come back
All the haunting emotions they bring
Thinking of people who have moved on
Thinking of so many things that could have been
Love and success reduce the pains – temporarily
Because some day everyone takes his dose.
Sometimes it looks like the past was wasted
The man is lonely now that once frittered hearts
and left everyone in adoring wonder
All the glories walk with those that knew them
There he lies, wasted and no bard to tell
To think that once, those moments meant everything
Now no one wants it; blast from the past
Even today’s idiots think they have a better deal
even when what they have is empty nothing.
Then we wonder was it all worth it.
Ever so often, it seems like the best is done
and what is gone is more than the future can give
Well, after all, the past has no anxiety
Why can’t we just bask there
or perhaps allow time to swing …random
past future present future past present past past
Oh! My mind is going again…………

The arrow points forward

But the past’s got me

The best of me and us remain there.
