Election poem by Kehinde Taiwo

Published

on

Election, the selection and never a manipulation,

With no bribe to vibe up the future by tribe

Tomorrow secured by now, wise up and rise up

With your votes, your future procured

Yesterday, mistakes in the past

Cast in the days of old sins

Made to last no more by the future

Like a mast, a signal found with new opportunities

A sight with a collective might

We pride our unity in diversity against a poverty-stricken future

Plague’ with vagueness

A sold conscience, the election slavery tool

Election, free and fair we pray

A do but never a die affair, they say

Strain violence with peace to play

Neither bloodshed nor death, the way

The future wade yesterday, buried in the loss of the past

Pleasure’ birthed with gain

Loss’ made pain

Not in vain but treasure to the wise

Like the rays of the sunlight

With peace, its beauty radiates light

The future stays bright

Peaceful election is no choice but a voice to stay right

Written and composed by Kehinde Taiwo
