No Vacancy - Poem by Babatunde Aremu

This throne is mine
There's no vacancy
Lion has no rivalry
In the jungle community
My competitors are time wasters
This sceptre of authority is mine
No one can wrestle it from me
There's just no vacancy

Be warned!
No electorate can remove me
I own the necessary machineries
Incumbency favours me
State's funds are in my custody
I am doling out quid
To bribe kings, princes, chiefs,
Imams, pastors and herbalists

Even militants and hoodlums
Are being mobilized
To demonstrate in my support
They can vandalise and maim
Just to silence my opponents
Soldiers are battle ready
The police are well- oiled
To defend this throne for me

So, you see!
There's no vacancy
