The Excellent Robber - Poem by Babatunde Aremu
This is the story of his excellency
Who is richer than the land
Who have treasures than the nation.
He is the numero uno in the creeks
He is quintessence of flamboyancy.
Surrounding himself with nobles
Who delights in raping the land,
His excellency radiates outward candour
Sanctimoniously preaching moral rectitude,
He detests the pickpockets and
Punishes the babies that lick the soup
But feasts with the looters
Who aided him in banking his loots.
Surreptitiously, he rapes the people
Comatosing the communitity into penury
Metamorphosing people to become beggars.
His excellency rapes.
His excllency deprives.
His excllency steals.
His excellency is a greed.
His excellency is a gangster
Who shoots his people.
His excellency kills
To satisfy his quests
His excellency is an excellent robber.
