Away From Scam

When agidigbo drum is beaten
Wiseman dances with care
Knowledgeable man interpretes carefully
He who does not want to witness evil
Daily runs away from trouble
I have learnt to skip like calf
I have decided to run like antelope
I will scamper as a mouse
Fly away from the snare of tricksters
Who sends mail to my box claiming to be super rich
Attributing great wealth to his generation
Seeking for the fort to download
The long forgotten wealth
He changes tricks daily
He wears different gowns hourly
I have learnt to be careful
I have learnt to shine my eyes
My eyelids are widely opened
I have invited contentment
To guide me to discern
Whenever scam beats its drum
To enable me scamper like a mouse
From the snares of these scams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
