Like The Fire! - Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

Illegal lust,
Kindle in the thickets of the forest!
As it devours the briers and the thorns.

Illegal lust,
Wickedness burns like the fire!
And, with folly.

And, woe to those who decree unrighteous decrees! !
To those who write the grievousness they have prescribed.

Illegal lust,
To deprive the needy from judgment;
And, to take away the right from the poor!
Putting us into trouble on this earth.
