DEATH LURKS

Death !!!

They say it is inevitable

Death is truly unquestionable


Why do people die?

Why do people survive?

No! why do people survive so they can die?


Questions

No answers


I used to think that death was curse

I came to realize that death is a blessing

But now i have learned that death is both


I heard the cries of the bereaved

Like the trumpet of an elephant, as i perceived


I saw the earth that was dug

Heaped upon a child that was once

A dreamer of hope

A servant of wealth


I saw tears from spirits that rise

I saw fright in pretense of a smile


Why do men walketh upon the earth with sheer arrogance?

A metaphor indeed to a laughable but innocent ignorance


Death is coming our way

The good news is that we do not know when.

THERE WAS A COUNTRY

There was a country
It is not far from how it was near
It has a name conceived from cowardice and fear
It is a place where anger is sowed
It is a place where reaped harvests are stowed
There was a country indeed
Leaders are shameless to stupor
Followers are left in admiration of The Tudors
The street are littered in Guns
Painted by sorrowful kids who mourn
There was a country
A country garnished in impending anarchy
A country smeared with filthy oligarchy
A country after my heart
A country that awaits my wrath
A country who preach religion more than the almighty
A country who treats humanity heartlessly
There wasn't any county
It was just a failed Lugard's hypocrisy
I picked my pen from the basket of tears
