WHAT IS POLITICS? – BY ONOCHIENGWU OBUNA

Barrister Obuna

            POEM

Politics is the science of statecraft.

Politics is in oligarchy, in aristocracy

Politics is in democracy, in meritocracy

Politics is in theocracy, in totalitarianism

Politics is in monarchy, in elite despotism

Politics is the science of all Leadership

Not devoid of all forms of dictatorship 

Not devoid of all forms of showmanship,

Politics is the goodness in real statesmanship

Not devoid of forms of crookedness in witchcraft.

Politics is an art of wisdom

It’s for wo(men) with divine wisdom

It’s for wo(men) with great mission

It’s for wo(men) of true great vision,

It flows from head of a great fe(male) gender

It flows through hands of the Servant Leader

Politics is played from the left or right wing

Politics is for the Philosopher-Queen/King.

Politics is the art of governing of men

Politics is who gets what, how, when

Politics is authoritative allocation of values

Politics is full of surprises from the blues

Politics is the art of the possible

Politics is an art of the Honorable

Politics is an art of the horrible

Politics is an art of the terrible.

Politics is an art of weaponization of economy

By national, international merchants of hegemony

Through slavery, colonization, apartheid, subjugation

Which springs up people’s right to self determination

Spirally leading to global meltdown and stagnation

As in WWII, Nigerian-Biafran, Ukraine-Russian war

When hunger turned legitimate instrument of war,

Politics can bend state, national, international law. 

Politics flows through the barrel of the gun

When elections were neither lost nor won

During the era of the old modern time juntas

Who were like ancient mindless head hunters

Noted for barbarism, incompetence, gross misrule

Yet they call others the zombies and bloody fool

Politics is a good scientific field of study,

Politics is sometimes violent, very very bloody.

Politics flows though the fountain pen

Flows through my fiery mystic fighting pen

A fighting pen that shapes public opinion

A pen that calls for socio-economic re-union

A pen that calls for fairness and equality

A pen that calls for justice and equity

A pen which is mightier than the sword

Willing tool in the hands of the wordsmith

Politics flows from power, golden pen’s word

Politics is a priceless gift from Almighty God.
