By Taofiqat Ayomide Nasir


Majesty abreast honesty

To only let life lives;

But he thinks honesty is poor

In his realm pillared of conceit


Politics had screwed his wit

And so lies his policy embrace

He roams in the pendulum of deception

Layers on Layers bridging corruption


But sun, cease not harvest light

Nor betrays gleam in contrived darkness

As his clock now ticks backward

To fetch his promises from forgone past


Truth is a loyal drunkard

That combats cowardice to pieces court

Her stinging fingers tickle reasoning

To comb-out responsibility


So let him riot in the pool of contrite

A living witness in justice league

If he thinks power is built of tower

And not truth, honesty and ego.
