TO COURT THAT CALLS by Muhammad Auwal Ibrahim


Call not, when you doubt
Judge not, in the night
When darkness comes and covers
Hurry not, in judgement

To the tellers of story ,
Tell not, when you aren’t asked,
Come to court if you are called,
And tell the truth of you
Tell not, false news even if your life is threaten
Fear your tongue,
It may leads you to sorrows
Either today or tomorrow

Let the judge see with their law lens,
Ask court criminals,
Contact colleagues,
And visit big books. if he fails,
And refuses to free from the court cage
And then refuses to hear the voices of victims

Obey him as a loyal citizen,
Even if he favours not you,
But heart won’t forget
Mouth will tell as long as it could
Time will surely tell
Long, lived
