Vices to be Wiped out

You will be beset by ire
when you rent your mind to greed.
Pride will push you into mire
so to wise counsels pay heed.

Cremate your envy on pyre
and be honest in your deeds.
You will be beset by ire
when you rent your mind to greed.

Nothing will make you to tire
if you're off from lustful weed.
Do humans more advice need?
You will be beset by ire
when you rent your mind to greed.

Nigeria: The slumber

Nigeria, a people that suffer
A people that strive, a people that hunger
A people in a dark, deep and dangerous slumber
A people whose greed, ignorance and corruption linger
Whose deep wound heals on one side
but bleeds on the other
A people dragged into the mud
by those that arise from the mud
A people of democracy
A democracy of mediocrity
A democracy of evil greed
A democracy of rotten seed
A people of careless leadership
A people of spineless followership
Nigeria,
A plastic face
A prideless deep
A shameless she
Of salvage leaders
Nigeria, my country
Drowning in the pool of its blood
Spilled by its children
Nigeria, my country,
Moving in a circle
A cycle of religion
A cycle of tribe
A cycle of corruption
A cycle of destruction
Nigeria, my people
A people that suffer
A people that thirst
A people that hunger
A people in a deep, dark and dangerous slumber
A people whose light grows dimmer
Whose hope grows slimmer
Till eyes rise from the slumber
And greed appreciates hunger
And true voices shout like thunder
And willed feet stump and say no longer! !
Nigeria,
A people that suffer
A people that hunger
A people in a dark, deep and dangerous slumber….

Greed be the Ruler?

Do we really want our greed to be the ruler of our life
when all we get for our effort is agony and strife?
We keep chasing after dollars each and every day
but if it's really worth the time is very hard to say.

The need for ever bigger things has taken a firm hold
but treasures in our heart are worth far more than gold
instead we stress and run around like rats within a cage
we work ourselves into the ground and end up in a rage.

We live with tunnel vision having just one goal in mind
to use our hard earned dollars and buy all we can find.
With a big promotion and more money greed will grow
we want more material wealth that we can put on show.

This is the world we live in if we shut our spirit out
we'll never cherish what we have of that there is no doubt
but if we put aside our greed to see how we are blessed
we'll recognise that we have always had the very best.

Concepts 17

As a waft of grass not perturbed by high velocity of the winds
As a river joining the sea not bothered by the depths of the ocean
As a true warrior not afraid of the might of enemy’s army
A humble soul will never be disturbed by the vagaries of daily life

Despite soaked in milk for weeks coal never turns white
stretched for months tail of dog can never be straightened
fed with honey never can be sweetened the voice of crow
by imparting morals and values minds of crooks never be corrected

Accumulated wealth cease to exist
If shared with those who are in need
Even if shared among all those on earth
Knowledge accumulated shines on further

Anger and greed annihilates harmony and peace
Uncontrolled anger seals the wisdom and sows hatred
Unchecked greed unleashes anarchy and creates unrest
Sway not with anger even under provocation
Grow not the greed even under temptation

Soaring prices and snoring rulers tearing our confidence
Inflation and deflation are coined by comfortable and
Unleashed on common man according to their whims
Unruffled always are the rich as power lives with money
