The Menace - Reginald Asangba Taluah

She lurks like the darkness
And wrecks like a hurricane
She creeps like a night mare
And breeds like a cancer

She is the robber of today
Who steals the souls of men
A trepidation in the hearts of men
That strikes down helpless victims

Man breeds her
She wraps man
Pins him in grief
And leaves him hopeless

She engulfs where mischief is most
Chooses where morality is no more
With no regards for race or age
Mendicant and affluent she takes alike

The black cohort; the worst afflicted
Ruined to depression and delusion
To recklessness; they perish
Uneducated and unresourced
