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.
