Creator, a poem by Professor Ikechukwu Benjamin Ezeohagwu

Professor Ikechukwu Benjamin Ezeohagwu

has no need,
to worry
about human greed,
Creator hewn His Laws,
into creation,
to heed or weed whatever.

has no reed,
to worry
about seed,
Creator hewn His Laws,
into creation,
to weed whatever unlawful.

has no deed,
to worry
about His Laws,
so hewn into creation,
so Immutable,
and Incorruptible.

Men are so obliged
freely to learn,
and live those Laws,
in their sense
as fulfilling,
so avoid annihilation.

Law of Sowing and reaping,
Law of Spiritual gravity,
and Law of attraction
of homogenous species,
live by them, to avoid chaos.

Helter-skelter the world is,
by men, due to failure,
those Laws to obey.
