OCCUPANTS ON EARTH

Confusion wouldn’t be your portion.

Mystery of the future blinds humanity,

King owner of the throne

Who abuses it

Not minding tomorrow,

His hype name is

‘Enjoyment, that’s life’.

Mother insulting her offspring

She’s also malnourished,

Tomorrow comes in hast,

Child doesn’t make headway.

Mystery of the future blinds humanity

My friend.

Sense of reasoning is deliberately

Not proportional

Thank God of mankind.

If a bell can keep vigil for

God

Its good for us to think, let’s think,

Proud lady

Elderly man

M.K Ojojo

T.junction is a meeting point

For witches

Dangling beads from the waist

Of a beauty queen,

Broom, air plane for a kid.

The way I think

Woman is GOD.

-Habib Akewusola
