THEIR LIVES By Saka Sodiq

Written by Bada Yusuf Amoo

Relish on all those sweet eons,
You`d prefer *Garcinia kola to their sweet life though
for as kola ease the throats, they strangle it,

freedom and laze  were their days` orders,
nay, their nights’!
as darkness is their fave to swarm.

In armed group and drugs they`re strong,
ignorance mixed with devilish passion,
forgiveness a sin, and kindness a sign of weak.
Peace irritates them, like it does Thor, the god of war.
They demoralize the dignified ones
and traumatized the morale.

But when the world they threatened reciprocated,
and Karma penetrated leads to their hard hearts,
and eyes closed to see the beauty they`re leaving behind:
ambitions bashed and they died regretting,
leaving friends lamenting and parents mourning.
And if **“Death and love are the two wings that
bear the good man to heaven”,
a wing alone they have now_death.
Such is the life of those who but do not know,
such is the life of the Cultists.

*bitter kola
