Angels Of Destruction – OLUMEGBON M. ADENIKE

The angels of destruction

Are those who hold powerful positions

But never forget to use it against the people,

Who after looting the country’s wealth abroad

Go on vacation with girls old enough to be their daughters. 

The angels of destruction

Are those who take advantage of the country’s economic depression

And in the name of unemployment

Sleep around lazily all day

And at night come out in their numbers

To waylay those coming from their place of work

And take forcefully their daily earnings.

The angel of destruction

Are those religious leaders

Who chose to only preach to the people

What they feel they should know

And not what the scripture actually preaches.

The angels of destruction

Are those people who out of frustration

And in the name of vengeance

Destroy the country’s only own source of income

Not considering what the future holds.

The angels of destruction

 Are you and I

Who are always quick to judge others

And have justification for our own mistakes ,

Who are always quick to pass judgement to small time thieves

And leave our ‘sit-tight’ patriots to God.
