THE OTHER LIST

 Oh! Sir, do well to include my name,
for I have been told of your influence,
of how you helped Wisdom Otu and
Nseobong Edem
For I have been searching in vain,
and I am tired of living in pretense.
Let as they paste the list, my name I see.

Oh! Sir, do well to include my name,
for I have been informed of your powers,
of how you included Blossom Peter and
DeeMaria Asuquo
I can't continue anymore in shame,
do unto me as you did to the other brothers,
for like them, I want to display a dance.

Oh! Sir, do well to include my name,
for I have been briefed of your magnanimity,
of how you favored Certified Spiffy Saviour Smart and Mary Willie
For I also wish to live in fame,
like many others in my community,
so my situation can so change.

Oh! Our godfather(s)
I asked not as a man with no God,
nor as one with no credentials,
for I am told same was done to our fathers
how they got jobs with little or no efforts,
with no feasible potentials.

Oh! My heavenly father,
pardon if I now trust in men,
or on them anchored my hope.
You used them to bless the other brothers,
Let then my case be same,
for I have indeed managed to cope.
