Mandate

Written by: Fisayo Aderounmu

Guide and guard that mandate 
Using all gadgets like a racquet 
within the bracket. 
Against all bandits and pirates. 
Tho' it's after the similitude 
of the mantle on Elisha from Elijah 
which made the former to sell all his cattle. 
Unknown to him, it was a miracle 
Luv, retire from that racket 
All because you aspire to acquire a rocket. 
It may end like a cricket 
or lack a backdate to lactate a rebate. 
It's beyond a debate amongst your classmate, 
roommate or age mate. 
It's carrying an expiry date not minding your data base. 
Man-date says you are a man with dates.
