Poem: SELFISH GRAVE YARD

Poem: SELFISH GRAVE YARD

Oh graveyard why are thou selfish?

Thou have got more professors than oxford

More kings than Israel and Egypt

Princes, duchess, countess thou have many

Thy infants are greater than sand

Thou left only a few wise men on earth

Even the ocean is envious of thy wealth

Musicians, actors, comedians thou have stolen

Sound doctors, teachers, leaders none did thou let go

More friends thou swallowed than enemies

Thou prefer philanthropists to greedy politicians

Beneath thee are great ideas, talents and goodwill’s

Thou took Romeo so love followed

Mandela you ceased, truth and justice vanished

Yet thou long for more

Nobody escapes thy fury except Enoch

I know thou search for my soul, God has hid it

But what else do thou need? More than a nation thou got

Why are thou so selfish, graveyard?
