The Rebirth 2

Love no longer radiate like the raven,
Injustice now risen to high heaven,
Bloated egos rules the high and lowly,
Unfitted and stained sleeves show off proudly.

The okra plant has outgrown it planter!

Children eating with elders; with hands uncleaned,
In the presence of elders; palm nuts burned,
Toads strolling at noon without being pursue,
Abominations appraised as virtue.

Oh okra plant has outgrown it planter!

Stars and ravens who displayed great radiance
Shall sit in place of man; with elegance
The almighty who gave man dominance
Can also make stone and grasses advance.

So okra plant can't outgrow it planter.
