Poetry from Rasheed Olayemi

A Nation With Crippling Economy

How can it grow?

A nation where truth suffers

Social justice buried

Injustice prevails

Fragrance of truth, very difficult to smell

Concoction of corruption, cooked and shared, to kill proper conduct

Many among the led cheat

In their spheres of influence 

But always blame their leaders, for their woes

Really, vast majority contribute

To the economic mess

Including a worker, who pilfers at their workplace 

Tell a nation with crippling economy

To revamp its value system

Winds of change blow

Only through the positive moves of upright citizens
