The open secret


In God's creation, God created man with different features
According to Shakespeare, there is no art to find the mind's construction in the face
This could be said about the crop of leadership we have
and the kind of appointments they make.
In the word of God, do not rejoice at the death of a sinner
but on his death, all the nations rejoiced
Rumours of his death kept flying in the social media
but our government of lies kept the open secret to themselves until they found a substitute.
When the bubble burst,
they found a suitable substitute for the job
Some rejoiced
but evidence of more weeping started trooping in accusation upon accusation about this choice
They called him the devil's incarnate.
Looking at the completion we saw black charcoal
Deep down, those that knew this angel reported,
Lucifer has come on a mission
It has become an open secret for all to see.
Condemned on arrival, behold the finger that bit the one that fed him
There is fire on the mountain
Nigerians run, run, run
A man that could kill the future of others for his own to grow.
Our case is dead on arrival
The masses have bitten more than they can chew
A devouring fire is about to consume many
He has come to do the will of the one that gave him power.
We are on a lookout whether he has changed or he will be true to type
The media men who condemned him years back are now to sit at the table with him
What kind of leadership are we going to get?
The future will tell.
