CRUDE OIL APPEAL

Crude Oil Appeal

www.facebook.com/WRRPoetry [Crude Oil Appeal]

Hey! My dearest
Do not come any closer
For this sweet smell
You perceive of is of
Death and not life!

Hey! Brother stay far
Far away from me
And do not try to dip
Your hands into the oily
Content that you behold
For it only spells doom!

Why are you so adamant?
Despite all that I have said
Ask, Jesse and he will speak
Of bitter tales of woes
And of carnage that has
Remained unforgotten!

What you’ll get is sweet pleasure
That will leave you sorry
Your families whimpering, gnashing
Teeth as long as they live
The survivor is rewarded with trauma
That will remain all his life!

Stay clear of me
And let me be, for this
Lustrous oleaginous surface
From which you whiff wealth
Dazzling your very eyes
Only breathes Death!

(Dedicated to the victims of the recent fire incident at Lapai in Niger State)
