DEFINITION OF MAN By Olawuni Odunayo Ebenezer

Written by Editor

Man is an instrument of destruction
Who lacklustre what are precious
Man who retard progress
In a deceitful ways

Man that struggle for his own benefit without consideration
Man! Making things precarious to his fellows
Man with a tremendous look
But full of evil mind
Man who recompense evil with evil

Man who return good for evil
Man who intoxicate for madness
Walking in naked, appreciating modern values
Neglecting the culture and heritage
For his minds devise violence

A man is like a serpent
And stings like a viper
Imprudent man who always sees evil as good
In darkness they are for evil deed
But during daylight, they sympathize

Hmm! Man the ever being I ever scare of;
What else should I describe man with?
Even wild animals are more friendly than man, let alone the domestic;

Even the Creator saw the wickedness of man;
And that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually…..
Then He was grieved in His heart for creating man in His own image
What is a man?
A man is a dangerous animal
“Man a ferocious animal ever…”
