Stupid era

Many times I wonder

As the rhythm of my heart goes

Ding dong, ding dong 

I ponder

Have we all gone nuts?

Are we now robots?

Devoid of emotions

Nor human feelings

As we act stupidly

With our smart phones

When lives beg for help!

Why not a life saver 

Than paparazzi

Acting so lousy

With smart phones

Stupid era

I ponder

Many, oh many

To the morgue

'Cause we fail to act

In the scene

We act foolishly with our phones

Allowing lives evaporate

All because

We want views, 

We want comments

We want likes

Era of social media

Stupid era!

The baby in a carton crying

Yet we're videoing

Oh accident victims struggling

Yet we're snapping

Is our phone a curse,

Rather than a blessing?

I ponder

What a stupid era!

Drop of tears

As I scribble a tribute

With my quill 

Deep in the ink of pain

Drop of tears roll down

My cheek decorated in sadness

My paper is soaked with tears

Tears deep down my soul

As I see your picture formed from the teary liquid

Oh Onyinyechi-the gift of God

A beautiful gift roughly handled

By Doctors and Nurses

Who prefer Telemundo

Over their dying patient

Oh what a mess!

What did your Hippocratic stuff say?

Can a saner medic tell me?

Efforts to save you, fruitless

Oxygen they gave you, meaningless

Three years gone

Yet memory like three days

A life without your vibes,new phase

Oh that fateful day, I remember

Yes 5th of September

We cried

As you died

Thought of you coming up again

As we grappled with the pain

Oh Onyinyechi rest

I say rest
