Angelic' verses

I wonder! So much diatribe!
Over an issue that has no tribe.
There must a way out of this jinx,
If we agree to eliminate the sphinx -Egotism
dressed in intellectual mink.

Me, I think we can build an empire
Without stoking any ire,
Only if we can inspire Everyone to aspire,
Climbing higher, And not tire,
As they perspire
On their way through the brier Or the mire
Because it's bad for them to expire
 Before they can kindle the fire,
Which God is able to respire
Into them, making them fit for hire
Even as they trudge through the pier Of their life

S.B. Bassey
