Corrupt Governments



Rich and pompous, Idiotic to the core
Educated illiterates all alike
Avarice and greed their main goal
Claim to leadership as kingship throne
Hook or by crook they rule with iron
Coup d'état, guns to rape
Rigged elections, falsified result
Sorrows, tears and blood
They share to their inhabitants
Swiss accounts dots their lineage
Their satanic seat left to rot
Ancestral gods watch in disdain
While people die in hunger and pain
Who will save the plight of them all
Prophets of old, revolutionist not found
Gone are the days, when we fight and win
Fear grips all, to shame and lack
That's what African governments have become
Military and Civilians alike

Roland 'KingShip' Ediare

I'm a man sold-out to The God of JesusChrist...I preach Him in & out of Season...-I I love life, laughter and being myself...I'm "BRASH"; usually not a 'respecter of persons'...I practically speak things as they are with a pragmatic intent. ...And I'm usually Very PASSIONATE about whatever I speak or do...lol ...Regarding my poetry: I usually put on a character and a subject that I'm passionate about...It brings me close to deliver my passion as the real characters would feel...As close as I can get if the 'subject' was me....someday 'Beyond the Sky' will be my reach. "Deo Volente!...Please Enjoy my poems, most of them are quite deep; so when you read try to get outside 'The Box'; because ...I write from outside the box...And Remain Blessed. Then before you rate Google the meaning of unknown word, you do not know it all...How do you fault what you do not understand...the burden of understanding is never on the giver of information, but on the recipient...Anyway thanks. more…
