BEATITUDE(a poem by Sunsampaul Egwu)
And tell those who are weak and heavy laden to chill and relax,
Tell them to be strong like Paul and Silas;
For their tears will be wiped out.
Blessed are those who've waited long for change
For they shall be transformed,
Blessed are those whose universities are vast cities of atrocities
For they shall be protected.
Blessed are those who fought for us In the war front
For they shall be victorious,
Blessed are those in the slum, whose neighbours are now rats and mosquitoes
For they shall be filled with good health.
Blessed are those politricians, who claimed to be saint
For they shall have their gain as pain,
Blessed are those aborted babies, who could've become a better future leaders
For they shall be given the grace to live again.
Blessed are those men of the underworld
For they shall drink their own blood,
Blessed are you Oh! Nigerians with hope of a better tomorrow
For your cups will overflow with milk and honey.
