Mediocrity rivals Corruption

Titanic battle unfold as foreseen and planned 
Almost the egg and the chick story ever told 
A complex battle and partnership that desecrates 
While they flex for supremacy of a land barren

Tomorrow’s temples lie in reckless shambles   
Good has never been discredited to high degree
Excellence lost her place in today’s agenda  
The dogs have conquered the temple with wild snarls   
They gnaw away at the fabrics of the core of life
In a land where Idiocy is the credential that qualifies 
Upturned values changing the scope of life 

In corruption we allowed mediocrity and wallowed
In fervent prayers for idiocy to change form in time
A nation overwhelmed by real capacity in real tatters 
Leaders of the lot confused in their ignorance and shame 
Nation under siege on two fronts by identical monsters 
Corruption has begot his biggest rival mediocrity  
Leadership scripts oozing Mpu na iti (impunity)
