MONEY by OLOLADE ABIOLA BAKARE

Money here.
Money there.
Everywhere.
Anywhere.
Whatever you want, you get.
But where is the Money to spend?
You are useful but,
Children and Family
matter.
Health and education
matter.
Food and transport.
Night and day.
Church and Mosque.
In the Lord’s name.
You’re needed everywhere.
Life is tough without you.
Nothing comes easy without
you.
Oh Money!
Where art thou?
You are as hard;
As a nut to crack.
Without you,
Our problems are like my mother’s paying
beads.
Will you desert the commoners like that?
They search.
They count.
They wait.
They cry.
Yet theirs is a life of beaded needs.

To all money-proprietors…
