THE D-I-A-R-Y OF THE POOR (Poem) by Badiru Kehinde
No one knows!
The unfairness of it...
A beggar came into a restaurant
And de-MAN-ded for food
He paid, but with the proceeds from the day's begging,
Under the bridge, his 3 wives laid
Hoping 'Pa' brings something home.
Few minutes ago, the bridge was cleared
terrored by the sound of the blaring siren
Because the minister of works
Is on a trip...
A trip to money sharing
Without realizing poverty sharing went down beneath
We hide our heads,
Still they seek to hurt it.
Alao was crushed by a truck
He was about to sell his last bottle water,
Ekenechukwu went to school,
But was sent out for tuition fees,
Musa's right hand was cut!
'm-a-s-a' & tuoshinkafa he stole last night...
Who cares abi?
If You cried! Save your tears
Of the spoilers of our land
NB: Don't be suprised, I decided to make viewing of this work acessible to all readers & critics, the next may not....
