Simple Lifestyle, a poem by Professor Ikechukwu Benjamin Ezeohagwu

29

Simple lifestyle,
anchored in lawfulness
of life, all we need.

Why all the greed
of suffocating smokes
by Nigerian leaders?

Why Nigerian leaders
crash cash of dashes?

Why Nigerian leaders
pang gang of tangs?

Why Nigerian leaders
dote vote of motes?

Why Nigerian leaders
cruise douse of bruises?

Productive, unassuming,
self-conscious, self-effacing,
are beauties for all human.

Simple lifestyle,
anchored in lawfulness
of life, all we need.
