The Mad World

By John Jimoh

Elegant in form and creation

Yet repugnant in its delight

Needed more in concepts

It knows nothing about

Yet so full of arrogance

Indeed! Arrogance in ignorance

Quirk enrages, the world is mad!

 

Oddity gushes out its progeny

Not a gene of rectitude in sight

Rather a voyage in caustic walkway

Indeed, the world is mad!

 

Constituents of its layers, ominous!

The man in the face-lift, ominous!

The powers in hegemony, ominous!

No sublime contraption of defiance

Indeed, the world is mad!

 

The good is flushed down the conduit

Songs of hate and hostility

sounding rhythmic disorder

fading away the memory of modesty

If ever would be, the world is mad!
