Executhieves, Sinators and Authorithieves

The executive Minister

Directing loyal workforce to administer

Aiding and abetting to acquire

Illicit wealth to which they retire

Stockpiling more for the nuclear unborn

While the living die of deprivation

As they executively loot the common wealth

With a sense of entitlement

The judge that cannot be judged

While society relies on thy purge

Justice is served to those who worship at thy lodge

Our respected village chief

Just gave a high ranking village tittle 

To that well known international thief

After a share not so little

The distinguished  senator

The symbol of authority a mace

But by conduct a disgrace

Condemning citizens to a rat race 

The reverend pastor

Holds on to his cross

The congregants follow without force

Because of the Imam

Many faithful are calm

offerings, tithes and zakats paid to a purse

Under a moral compass that is a farce

Behold  dear citizens

The executhieves, sinators and  Authorithieves

Love held in hands,
Opens eyes to  hope in the skies;
Now I see light.

The moon witness' us,
At the blouse of tensed sunset,
Love, the name we bare.

And crazy they went
Vows and promises they put on head
14/2 marks their death

Dear Valentine

Val' as you are,

Gently receding
Beneath the horizon 
Fom whence she did rise

In the hallow of your beauty my heart dwelled, I sight the beams, i smell the charms of your overwhelming perfume, the power of my enduring heart fails me; then I plight to love you forever!

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
