Am Tired - Poem by alexander opicho

Of average conventional thinking Guided by envy,
Jealousy, bigotry, prejudice and cheap competition
Shallow outlook and selfish appetite
Keen nose of cheap money without depth of character
The conscience and conscient both odoriferous
In bad and obnoxious obnoxity
Cult of betrayal rive to the brim
Almost to spill as sadism swallows live masochism
Cosmetic capitalism paving way to lumpen sham
Am tired, am tired and am tired!
No passion for knowledge money a universal linkage
If no pay then no effort whatsoever
Asking the blind to give a bribe
The orphans to give bribe
The lame to give bribe
Widows to give a bribe
Imbecile and idiots to give a bribe
Am tired, am tired and am tired!

You bunch of mediocrous mediocrities don’t
Carelessly mediocritize un-mediocrous world
You know your lameness and you don’t accept
By refusing you put your name in everything with a fallacy
Am tired of megalomaniacs that fail
To see their own mistakes
But keen on the precipice of
The hardworking conscientiousness
Am tired, am tired and am tired!
