A METEOR DOES NOT LAST.
PIUS ADESANMI, 1972 – 2019.
He meteorically rose to fame,
Through his deep, thoughtful and
Satirical writings about Nigeria, and
Indeed, the entire world at large.
A great loss for the literary arts,
The art of satire, criticism, and philosophy.
He came like a meteor, illuminated
The landscape and disappeared as a meteor!
Those who caught his light would,
Indeed be illuminated forever.
Those who did not, will continue,
To wallow in darkness and ignorance.
Pius, you are gone but not gone.
Your works will continue to inspire,
The present and future generations.
Adieu, our literary champion.
