Mr President

Poem by Lovina Sylvia Chidi

There are mountains of dreams
Encompassed with tears extreme
And I fear with thoughts hard to bear
One cannot create luck out of thin air

Good Morning Mr President
Greetings from a local resident
Long before I make this statement
Many have left with sounder judgement

Like the poem of a divine poet blowing up in smoke
I heard you make your wonderful speeches
All promises were absorbed with two ears soaked
But I know 'English' confuses when it preaches

Drunk with ears, unable to comprehend
Are the problems of society that easy to mend?
Can you really make the world a better place
with peace, trust and prosperity amongst races?
