Read Micheal’s poem after the cut and enjoy!


Don’t be cunny,

Be straightforward.

We know your plans,

We know what you mean.

Masters of euphemism

You veil your evils with good

White socks for black legs

We are not fools

After all the deceit on the mountain,

You came down to the valley,

To tell us the veiled truth;

To tell us the lie.

Masters of euphemism

We know your speech

We know eliminate means execute

We know mask means massacre


Well done, ironic patriarchs of peace

Keep the fake flag flying

More strength, more power.

-Micheal Inioluwa Oladele
