Lions Of The Darkness - Poem by Ibrahim Oba

They...dark men
Working in the great power of night
They never walk by the light
Men who make darkness their joy
Woe to them
By the night they feel the happiest

As a versifier I must say the truth
The lions of the night
When the night comes, they come out of their den
With sounding teeth
And mighty claws
Rearranging the house of man
Lions of the night
Putting panic to the heart of man
Collecting taxes which they never deserve

On a faithful day the lions will be prey
By the almighty moulder
Or by men in khaki
Lions of the night...
