In All These, Where Are The Holy Men? Where Are They?

By Rufus Kayode Oteniya
Listen to article

Where are they?

Where are their voices?

Where is our Samuel to call Saul to order?

Where is our Nathan to speak truth to David?

Where is our Elijah to articulate God's mind to Ahab and Jezebel?

Where are they?

Deafening is their silence!

Where are they?

Bright is their invisibility!

Where are they?

Our men are slaughtered; they are unperturbed

Our women are butchered; they are unmoved

Our children are held in captivity; they are tranquil

Where are they?

Do they care about the flock?

Do they care about us?

Do they care about our welfare?

Do they care about our wellbeing?

Do they care about our children?

Do they care only about our soul?

Do they really care?

Do they care only about our offerings?

Do they care only about our tithes?

Do they care only about our seeds?

Does God speak to them?

Do they hear from the Throne?

Can they speak for God?

Are they men of God?

Are they gods of men?

Are they just larger than life?

Yes! Larger than life, they are

They scramble to be friends of Government

They scurry to be close to Authority

They pride in dining at the king's table

They gloat in knowing the queen

They are too close for comfort

Too compromising

Too patronising

Too jeopardising

They abandon the sheep to their fates

With men they fortify

To us they say 'it is well'

Is it well?

Where are they?

Where is our Martin Luther King Jnr?

Where is our Desmond Tutu?

Where is our Jesse Jackson

Akinola is not young anymore

Okogie has tried his bit

Gbonigi is retired

Onaiyekan and Kukah are weary and discouraged

Bakare is the only voice in the Wilderness

Where are the big ones?

Where are they?
