[Bunch of Lines] POWER By Adinoyi Julius

[Bunch of Lines. Not Poetry]
POWER
By
Adinoyi Julius
Kogi, Nigeria

I am he who makes fewer men show,
he who makes some men see others as low.
I walk with pride eating deep but slow,
I corrupt absolutely.
If uncontrolled I would melt one’s conscience like snow.

Power makes a man bow to his heels.

Though it tastes nice if you bend
its will.
You would ride steadily on its back
if you know how to wheel the cart. Many women will crawl beneath your
foot mat,
if you wield it’s staff.
Power controls it all, even money does its bidding.
Power destroys it all…
especially when one cannot control its bringing.
