“The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.” ― Robert A. Heinlein

“There is a difference between needy and helpless. While doling out free benefits to the needy is condemnable, the helpless must be assisted to get their lives back on track. No one should be living in fear or under oppressive conditions.” ― Sumit Agarwal, The Four Patriots

our governance is in ruins

our politics is minus people

others play people centred politics

ours is politics sans people.

who needs people anyway

are they not a problem

you are worried for us?

don’t be for God’s sake

we are a work in progress.


our political leaders are

‘polluticians’ and ‘politrickcians’

scavengers they are

who do not worry about us

they ‘ll rather eat all

our belongings

don’t worry about us

‘we dey kampe’

we are work in progress.



our party leaders double

as assassins

don’t fret please

we are a work in progress.

we will get it right one day

don’t you know?

we are work in progress.
