THE HEART OF MEN By Jagunlabi Kodeman

Written by Editor

The heart of men
A confluence of envy
Rivulets of evil
A ceaselessly flowing darkness.

The heart of men
A tree of ambition
An ocean of disappointment
And a flower of fury

The heart of men
A sea of deceit
A galaxy of greed
And a hill of trials.

The heart of men
A hut of conspiracy
A stream of hypocrisy
And an arena of hatred.

As dark as the interior of a tunnel
Even the illumination of the hinky dinky
Could not create a pathway
Into the heart of men.
