THE HOLY GRAIL

"Let there be light", and lighted was the globe
That was when no-one was needed to pray-
and pay for the things, even a dry wood
Nowadays everything is about business
People can do anything for money and power
But by mercy everyone can lift the Holy Grail

Life is a race where being chased is Holy Grail
People's footprints are everywhere trotting the globe
Folks and fellows search for wealth and power
Pastors urge them to give tithes as they pray
Extolling God for success in business
While other folks extol their sculptured wood

People hope to make their names in Holly wood
That is a dream that they chase like Holy Grail
All know Hollywood to be real business
The mecca of filming in the whole globe
But others guard themselves not to fall prey-
Of temptations of glitter and power

People know not the origin of power
It is not from bowing before any wood
Nor it comes by listening to those who prey-
On those who crave for perks packed in Holy Grail
It comes by finding yourself in the globe
And position yourself for real business

To do good with numbers means good business
The gain of which is to reach star power-
And the right to light up the entire globe,
Master the art of idols in Bolly wood,
Reveal the golden line to the Holy Grail
And then press forward hustling as you pray

Every circumstance require everyone to pray
Before harvesting good gain in business
Take not your eyes away from the Holy Grail-
If you want contentment beyond power
watch what naira guys do from Nolly wood
Trusting their craft as they tro the globe

Those who conquer the globe are those who pray-
Not before wood or money in business-
But seek God's power to gain the Holy Grail
