A man of guile

Brag not O thou saint of no worth.
Has thou forgotten thou at like vapour-
a temporary smoke that lasts not?
have you forgotten thy lowliest past, Wherefore?

Mortal breath! without a breath of his own
suffocating the little one – Nigeria
by polluting “air of life” with “smoke unknown.”
May deliverance be unto this little one – Nigeria!

whose fate – in thy trickery – lies not:
for immortality  on earth lies not!
