Lambon Salifu Muhammeed (08/01/1995 / Nalerigu)
They that murder, rebuke the devil
They that rob or plunder, rebuke the devil
They that rape, rebuke the devil
They that fornicate, rebuke the devil
They that exploit, rebuke the devil
They that work prostitution, rebuke the devil
They that lie and gossip, rebuke the devil
Oh when will yourself you blame for your own wrongs?
Not the swarm of blames you give the devil baptise your evils with the liquid of virtue
Remember when the devil makes you practice vice, his work is done
but is your work done when you do not virtue?
So equal yourself you scold for not dwelling in virtue
And tell me if when come the doomsday, the devil you will scold to escape the swallow of hell.
