CEASE TO EASE (by Aderogba Adekunle)

In the #PulseStudentPoetry Prize an 8-line poem could win you a Laptop...

Unrighteousness presides over the nation

Like water would, for an ocean

Shall we dwell on the power of rice?

Even on our rights, up, we can't rise

If through this path still we thread

Peace would be axed till it's dead

Our songs then only would be pieces of peace

And the nation, all cease to ease
