''What A Man'' - Poem by Anthony Seyi Abiodun

For you for me He came
While we carried on us the blame
He said the blame He came to take
How would He our propitiation make
He suffered scorn mingled with humiliation
For the intent of reconciliation
On Him the crown of thorn tied
He bled and bled and bled and died
And rose the third day to glory
Inviting His acolyte to tell the story
Is his death nothing to you?
Will your affection to this world glue?
Its gaity and pleasure seek?
And at last in HELL sink?
