Murphy and Lawrence. You and I (poetry) by ‘Lanre Bucknor (@lordrooz)

What’s in this life?
A life of strife
A life of thrive
A life trapped in the wilderness of crime

What’s in this life?
A life of greed
Full of lost creeds
A life we yearn more than live to be free

What’s in this life?
A life of insincere hajj
Of unreal mirage
A life full of null but a writer’s dirge

What’s in this life?
A life of toil
And hatred in gold foil
Where humanity kills, for nothing but oil

What’s in this life?
Where scores have goals
And all have foes
Marc, vivien and i have foe

What’s in this life?
Where we grow to age
And all live to die
Like Lawrence, Murphy, Like you and I

What’s in this life?
Question so simple
Yet, a question so hard
A question answered, not by these few lines

    Life’s amazing yet compelling puzzles, where plazas are dreams buoyed by sticks of dissent, a film of blatant realities!

    Well done bro!
