A Slave of Society       Written March 3rd 2012 by Jokpeme Joseph Omode
A slave of society he has become;
He was free from the individual master
But now a slave of society.
He had neither money, property, nor friends.
He was free from the old plantation,
He had nothing,
But the dusty road under his feet.
He was free from the old quarter
That once gave him shelter,
But a slave to the rains of summer
And the frosts of winter.
He was turned loose, naked, hungry,
And destitute to the open sky.
