LIGHT FOR THE THRONES – By John Babalola Joseph


Dark thrones doom the nation

In her streets flow tears of the oppressed

Injustice and wickedness consume the nation

Cause to bleed therein the few righteous

Then voices of pain amidst the creation

Then cries of the impoverished

Alas the murdering gloom in my nation

Alas the violence of the ruling thrust

Why do thrones protect robbers of our fortune?

Though the thrones, in robbery flourish


Bring here the Light that kills this darkness

That justice and equity may shine on us.

But My Light is the Light that bears the sword

That shall slay the wicked in the land.

@John Joseph’s Kingdom Poetry.
