If Men Are Like God - Poem by Idris Abayomi Alade
If men are like God
They will create their world
And rule it the way they like
And no one to check them.
They will give life at will
And take it without prior notice
They will take praise from their handiworks
And live only by it.
They will be the alpha and omega
Omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent.
They will appear white
Even if they are black.
But men are never God
So sad to help themselves
The soil too hard to till
They only look up to the hill where help comes
Not manner whose cook is unknown
But lubricant to lubricate their cogs
In the field they found themselves.
If men are God
They will live like their maker
Whose image they were created.
