The Learnt Of The World - Poem by EZEKIEL HARUNA DANBAKI

The learnt of the world,
Groomed in forms and visages of power
They, obsequious to the summons of duty
Have been deluded and are robbed of their wits
The learnt of the world-
To whom influence have entrusted the courtesy of the world
stare in conscious trance
As morality - with timorous trills and dire wail - seeps into the maws of history
The learnt of the world,
Brimful of wisdom, resumed their hallowed chambers
And for the repeated time, torture logic and common sense in subtle constitutions
(Oh! This saucy wrong)

Once upon a decent moment
They turned the law of logic upside down
And a filthy discourse ensued
'Now and legally too' they said 'a man can wed with a man, and a wife can marry a wife'
And 'that is human right! '
Scepticism is established
Faith in humanity is sullied
When human rights overwhelm human values
The other man makes merry, and the sane man is no victor
The learnt men are downright silly
And the devil; foul devil - the grandsire of it all.
