Oily Men's Song - Poem by Sayeed Abubakar
We want to oil the heads of oily men only.
No oil we have for those having no oil at all.
The owners and traders of oil
are our relatives and friends only;
we want to declare it again and again.
But those who are poor and beggars,
who are going to embrace death
are none to us
and they have no value on earth.
