leeches in power

                             LEECHES IN POWER

As old as the sand on the earth
So do I in power.
All colours leech on power
The dark loves me more.
Either you want me or not I will never flow in your direction
Those that want me to flow; frozen  in their graves.
I decide when to flow; no fellow dares me. 
Longing  in corridor of power is life fulfilled 
Nation with natural minerals, there you find me. 
staying power is an honour worth dying for   

Only those that follow  me enjoy my current and waves
Yes, I made them rich and  proud.
The fools thought all rivers are equal but some rivers rule  others
I am the sea,  the seat of powers. 
 I may be slim in size when I roar, ship capsizes. Yes, lives are wasted.
Flowing round the world  I am fulfilled
Who can challenge me? Those in power I select them.
I fed them  with  fishes;  support  them with strength 
 If I flow out my seat of power, my leeching hand still control power.
Go and tell the poor in the streets that rivers are not equal;
In power we are not equal.
There is no nation without me
Those in me enslaved others, rein their land
Though, you may not like my ruling
Yet I rule you happily and comfortably.  
The waves of poverty, crises and war of minorities 
 Never flow me out of power seat.
You fear no man but think about salt you leech;
As mighty as the leech, dares not eat  salt
Oh!  what  vanity  life you who stayed on power lived?
Leech are in all nation seat of power.

Emmanuel Brown .A.
