THE LEAGUES OF FOOLS

-BY: T.Olumide

The leagues of fools are
The imbeciles of the newest century
Who bray of their misconducts
And not ashamed of their bloopers.

The leagues of fools are
The busybodies
Who engage in petty larceny
As their only source of livelihood.

The leagues of fools are
The unfortunate beings
Who steal the sweats’ product of innocent beings
Leaving them in grief.

The leagues of fools are
The louts of the society
Who blossom through loots
And encourage pandemonium.

The leagues of fools are
The supposed saviours of the people
Who enslave their people
By personalizing the common cake.

The leagues of fools are
The corrupt grandee
Who never protect people’s interest
But uphold their selfish interest.

The leagues of fools are
The corrupt public officers
Who take bribe and pervert justice
To enrich their own pocket.

The leagues of fools are
The trained judges
Who are supposed to be fountain of justice
But sell the justice for cash.

The leagues of fools are
The braggadocios
Who boast of their wealth
But never help the less privileged.

The leagues of fools are
The hypocritical clerics
Who do not do what they preach,
Beings with dying conscience.

The leagues of fools are
The laureates of failure
Who find no time to study hard
But play and enjoy every minute.

The leagues of fools are
The architects of misfortune
Who provide ready-made answers
For “the laureates of failure” in their various halls.

The leagues of fools are
The fools at forty
Who run after damsels
Worth to be their daughter for sexual gains.

The leagues of fools are
The damsels in distress
Who spread their legs
For the “fools at forty”

The leagues of fools are
The born-lechers
Who rape innocent beings
And leave them in the pool of their tears.

The leagues of fools are
The callous parents
Who produce children out of fun
And leave them uncared for.

The leagues of fools are
The homeless
Who are hopeless
And ascertain that they cannot make it in life.

The leagues of fools are
The tyrants
Who silent public opinion through coercion
For selfish reasons.

The leagues of fools are
The idiots
Who know the truth but will never say
Because of the received brown envelope.

The leagues of fools
Are the stiff-necked people
Who see this literary work as pejorative
And will never change.
