CHILDREN,WHAT DO THEY KNOW?…BY INI ENOIDEM, JSS1 STUDENT

 


Children,
What do they know?

Tell them you’re angry
They would say they are hungry,

You’re fed up with life
They would say life is well-fed,

Say poverty is knocking at the door
They would say it is their own puberty.

Tell them there is no food in the bowl
They would you buy football,

You’re down in health
They say, you’re up in health,

You have sleepless nights
Toiling and tilling till the sun sets

Or sometimes soothing their diseases
Still on the morrow

You counsel their complaints
And worry about their needs

Of course they know
That their Guiding Angels

Fill the bowls
Grow the corns

Bring the wealth
Heal the diseases

But Papa and Mama
Do not know.
