WAR OF FAME
I fought a war of fame
Enroute to beat my shame
I might as well have lost
But triumph in spite of its cost
 
The battle field was staged with red
But not a blood was shed.
Weapons were not of swords
But brilliance in choice of words.

My critics were sitted in the hall
They all came to see me fall.
Their fierce face I behold with fear
Their boo makes my heart to tear.

With courage I stood uprightly
And the judges acclaimed me rightly
My foes bow their head in shame
But I have won a war for my fame.

Poet: Imoh R. Edem 
Aka; immortal
