Inhumane Lagos

Egbeda welcomes me with a local ambience,
with human beings behaving wild, not human.

No one greets the usual goodmorning, both
small and big. Is this the attribute of Satan?

People are just crafty here. Not wise. Neighbours have lost humanity for ego.

Twaddle takes the center stage, as they make
goodness to stop with themselves.

Don't tell me that little crassness doesn't
make one a heartless fellow.

This uncaring behaviour shows a heart
that is wicked, using GOD to justify the unjustifiable.

Lobotomized! They give their today to reclusiveness, very crude

not a gift anyone can offer. When will they
turn this inhumanity to ashes?

Very funny how man has sold humanity
for capitalism. This is not going

to give up soon. This book they are writing
doesn't interest me. This is not the mirror

I can offer to anyone. Just melancholy faces
everywhere. Undesirable.

Let mankind not come down to this.
