The Good Versus the Bad!

Abu-Ubaida Sani 1993 (Bauchi)



A question to humanity,
The good now seems calamity,
Fraud is proud of acceptability,
The beautiful problem! The situation suffers of laxity.

We have the others had,
Their thoughts remain so sad,
Anyway, we make our minds glad,
Ops! Only all is recorded on the perfect pad.

Our superiority, they say is rational advantage,
But in self destruction, we are of highest percentage,
Emphatic irony, it often makes me in rage,
Shamefully! Rationality is younger than age.
