The Power Holders - Poem by ali chukwuemeka

Spending a night in darkness
Is never a man's wish,
But a compelled plot amongst options,
Presented in our leader's corruption dish.

All light bulbs refuse to glow.
In the absence of electricity,
Darkness seems to be in a row,
Having his grip on one's soul with great tenacity.

The power holding company of nigeria,
Has proven to be what their name suggests they were,
Denying nigerians a craving sate of euphoria,
Which we all long in our souls to see.

Technology has indeed provided us an alternative,
Emancipating us from the grip of the power holders,
But poverty, the most dreaded disease,
Has retained the masses in the captivity of the power holders.

We all long for freedom
From the grip of the power holders.
We all long for freedom
From the shackles of the power holders.
We all long for freedom
From the uncomfortable invasion of darkness.
