TOO MANY NOTORIOUS IDIOTS By Adjekpagbon Blessed Mudiaga

Written by Editor

Why are you naturally blessed but suffering?
Is it because you don’t keep to time and promises?
That you are so proud of as your lifestyle?
Majority of you are poor because of arrogant idiocy,
Greed, envy, selfishness and witchcraft.
Could this be why foreigners tricked your ancestors and partitioned you some centuries ago?
To make matters worse, you fly banana leaves
As your technological knowledge
That leads you to nowhere but destruction.
Voodooism is what you are known for
While clutching Jesus and Muhammad’s books
As your guiding light and principles!
Oh, so sad, you think you are smart and wise
But your prayerful pretense is globally known.
You devour good and great destinies among yourselves
While praying as heavenly saints…
But who is fooling who, oh barbarians?
Keep deceiving yourselves with white principles
Of light while secretly destroying your own progress!
Foolish mammals of the dark continent
With great natural resources controlled by demons in power.
When will you stop fooling yourselves
And embrace the true love and live
Of the foreign saviours you fight over their religions?
