Laws Made In My Country - Poem by john chizoba vincent


Laws made in my country are
For the poor, made to punish
Them by the Rich in the society.
Orders given in my country are
To put the poor and the needy in pains.
The constitution makes them loose
Their sense of belongs and in confusion
They dance along the road for the
Rich to see their nakedness and laugh.
Who makes the laws and who execute it?
'You must pay your tax ' this is only for the poor.
When a the Rich steal millions, it is normal,
Then, the law courts stop functioning but
When the poor steal 'Maggi' in the market,
They are stone to death in the crowded street.
The black oil is only for the RICH,
Who is fooling who in this country?
When would our democracy speak for the poor?
