This piece introduces the album. It sums up all the rest of the pieces in the album as it takes its spin on puns and metaphors. It lays the emphasis, this album is a spoken poetry. A well crafted piece, bridge between a classical poetry and spoken poetry.
THAT SCHOOLING SYSTEM
This piece emphasises on the facts below!
The gong that education being the key is true yet the relevance of it encouraging white coloured jobs to the neglecting of other jobs is cancerous.
Almost every artist is marginalised in the educational sector and one’s creative qualities also undermined. Better still, smeared with the saying; “you will yield nothing from this craft”.
Yet, the persona stands tall in overcoming the rigorous schooling system and its mockery towards the talent-circle!
SARKCESS WILL MANIFEST
This piece elevates the fact that positive ambitions backed with passion and dedication will surely succeed!
There is no perfect timing! So, cease the time and make a dynasty out of it!
If you are able to overcome the shackles of the society, God will bless your work to succeed! So, stay positive and work with all your zeal and strengthen!
This piece embeds the synthesis, one’s dedication to succeed should be the backing voice that shuts any other comment! The personae elevates the ideology, going forward is tougher but the right focus will sail you through!
Allusions and Classic puns; Conceit metaphors and other stylistic techniques elevate the notion, “your case will surely close!”
WORK OF ART
This is the Fifth piece of the album! This features four artist. This piece emphasises on the definition one gives to his or her artistry.
“How you see yourself, is how you are labelled and how you brand yourself determines the number of fingers that are pointed at you.”
The personas elevates their own view on how his or her artistry can be identified!
This piece is spiced with quality!
PRINCE OF POETRY
This is the sixth piece, the centre and the pivoting piece of the album that all other thematic concerns do revolve. The personae glorifies his benefactor for mandating him with such talent. It elevates the fact that in all one’s doings or talentship, know that God should be the source!
The personae acknowledges God to be the pioneer of his artistry; his going forward and the successes to come will be by His own accord!
UNDER MY UMBRELLA
The seventh piece of the album. This raises the notion that all other artistry or art is under one umbrella. This is woven by series of thought provoking premises emphasised with God being the owner of this umbrella. A metaphysical play of wits and wonderful use of literary techniques should be what you ought to expect.
Through an entertaining use of words, this elaborates and seeks to arouse the need for one to aim in making a positive permanent mark in the world’s mind.
As only greater works fit for remembrance, the personae urges that in whatever we are doing, we should study to bring out the best, so that we can be always remembered. “Study shew thy self approved”
You can only be immortalised if you leave a greater legacy worthy of celebration.
This is the 9th poem of the album and it gongs for all poets to come together as one fraternity. The need for togetherness and oneness as POETS is a paramount objective of this piece. The personae edges, not to just come together but to literally revive the literary quality of poetry! He, the personae emphasises the fact that though this call is neither through the play of mystic drums, wailing pianos and phone calls but through mental awareness. We can must wake up!
The 10th poem and ends of thematic concerns of the album, Sailing Ship. This piece emphasises on communism in any organisation, the best way to succeed. This subject matter is expounded through the Allegory of The Lone Captain. A technical use of literary techniques and classical use of pun is used. It consists of symphonic and rhythmic words. Sailing a lone shows strength but sailing together with the right people is less choking and less time consuming.
A PUN STAR
This piece is the synthesis, the practical piece to the thesis or the subject matter of the album. The personae punny uses extended metaphor or the conceit metaphor to relate himself to poetry. Carefully and literally crafted, the personae uses the dominant device, pun. This piece seeks to create the awareness, pun has a great literary quality! In a nutshell, whatever you enjoy doing, do it well!
