Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
Entrepreneurial skills are good; when gains trickle to all.

Vote for Low Lying Fruits

by Lloyd T. Okoko

Golden hued hugs
Encase entrepreneurial skills souring skyward
Amidst intracellular war.

Thumbs thrilled up
Going glee for fetched funds
Scarce trickling down.

Thumbs tilled down
Gritting grief for farfetched fruits
Never lying low.

Mother of anomie!
High hanging fruits farmed far
From aching throats.

Mother of peace!
Low lying fruits fetched free
By all mankind.

Let's make peace!
Make men proven partakers pride
Thrilling with fruits.

Globalisation for the wellbeing of all mankind is what we should cherish. Entrepreneurial spirit is good, but using it for self gain alone is evil and seldom breeds peace. War becomes the ultimate resolution for all to eat. War cries in the middle east; war cries in Nigeria and now between Russia and Ukraine. God Help Us!
