The Price

No more words
Can be spoken.
Power changed hands
When Mammon
Moved from one to another
And virtue’s roaring
Was silenced
While greed quietly
Prevailed as conscience
Was put to sleep.
Tears arrive late
As the long arms of
Of Wickedness
Wreak untold havoc.
The lambs can now be slain
In quietness:
The price has been paid

My name is Oluwatoyin J. Taiwo – a Christian, an Engineer, and a Writer. I enjoy reading, travelling and watching football + lawn tennis. I love working with young people, especially teenagers. I believe that people are shaped by the words they hear or read, and our most important decisions are those we make in the first three decades of life.
