Cessation the love
Household has been scattered
When love lost

Humming in the community
Malicious gossip in the society
Disorder in the society
Degrading the society
Society has been scattered
When love lost

Humming in the state
Malevolent rumour in the state
As the day chameleon to night
Insomnia in state
Peace elude state
State has been scattered
When love lost

Mystery to nation
When    love    lost

Oh! It is a dream
Why do we stop loving
While love exist
Love is above all existent

When love lost the world burned, when love lost suffering was the cost...I admire the intelligent elevation from the micro example to the macro, from family to the national level Afolabi. "Insomnia in state, State is not at peace..." I interpret this expression as state paranoia eliminating rights and privacy, super surveillance. Love and lunacy, a strange balance...J.A.B.
