Wastage - Poem by Babatunde Aremu

Wastage! That's what the world is
Inside the divine garden
We wasted divine fellowship
Yet, we refused to learn our lessons
We went ahead to waste prophets
Not satistied with our past misdeeds
Our culture of wastage continue unabated
We always go to wars wasting each others
All in the name of modernity
We waste our green luxuriant trees
Now we cry woes for climate change
We created these woes
Just to gratify our urge
Our cherished virtues were trampled upon
Now terrors, kidnap, anarchy, lack
Sleep with us daily
Oh! What a waste
