Another poem for late Chief Gani Fawehinmi

Mystical Activism
(Dedicated to late Chief Gani Fawehinmi)
From the womb of blinding-darkness
Sun spring always to smile at dawn
So, wear no garment of hopelessness
For freedom and success may soon be born

Though corruption and nepotism are kings today,
When Nemesis comes with his band to play
Demons die at the altar of truth
Where sycophants can play no flute...

On the Archipelago of heaven's mystical motion
I am gathering etheric arsenals of revolution
To fire and wake you from slumber of cold
That your hearts should be stones of shining gold...

Arise! Arise, all you with spirits low!
I am not dead but active in the flow
Sending inspirations to make you grow,
Oh! Come see how I flow in the glow!
