A piece in response to the show of shame (in-fighting) by some Nigerian House of Representatives members

Heavenly Legislative Rascals
Is hell really empty
And all the devils come dining in this territory?

There is a time in life
When things need to be crafted void of strife

Hear this, O you saints manufacturing laws!
Only a ‘nightless’ heart can see without flaws

The mammon you fight for shall come and go
One day like a flash like your clay and soul

Wherefore, what for, O blind travelers!
Is the greed that turns you everyday wrestlers?

One dawn of the highest Oracle’s favour
Is worth more than a century of labour.
