Mr. Master - Poem by olawale famodun

Hello, Mr. Master
I want you to know
What you feel you know, but you
Never could admit until this moment:
You see me as your slave
With whom you do
All that you will;
But I only want you to understand
That what makes you
Act this way is fear-
Your fear of me is your master
And I keep wandering
Who is the slave and who’s the master? Or
Who’s the greater master or who is the greater slave?
Mr. Master, now, do you understand?
Don’t tell me
That you want to remain
A naughty fool.
Your fear of me is like a living dead
It haunts your soul
To be planning destruction for me,
But Mr. Master, this your fear of me
Did lead to your self-destruction,
Because you couldn’t live but to die
In the hands of your fear of me.
But I only want you to understand
Who is the slave and who’s the master? Or
Who’s the greater master or who is the greater slave?
