Warning to Rich Oppressors

Warning to Rich Oppressors

By Chigozie Emmanuel Okonkwo

Now listen, you rich people,
Weep and wail because of the misery
   That is coming upon you
  Your wealth has rotted, and
 Moths have eaten your clothes
 Your gold and silver are corroded,
 Their corrosion will testify against you
    And eat your flesh like fire
 You have hoarded Wealth in the last days.
Look! The cries of the harvesters have reached
      The ears of the Lord almighty
You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence
 You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter
  You have condemned and murdered innocent men,
    Who were not opposing you.
