*Where Is your Sting?*

 
By  Adegoroye Olakunle F. (Maflex)
 
* Where, O death is your victory?*
* Where, O death is your sting?*
Becoming agent of darkness to take all to *grave*
_Bringing about abasement of the proud_
_Swift the thought of the poor; weeping aloud_
_To forget about the glorious future; 6 feet for enshroud_
_our salvation has come_
*Where, O death is your victory?*
*Where O death is your sting?*
_Casting and craving for gnash_
_To the lying body abash_
_leaving tears in eyes of many_
_hollow in the mind forever like “Allegheny”_
_glory ! you are trampled on the floor_
_you’ve got no ador_
_tell me.._
*Where, O death is your victory?*
*Where, O death is your sting?*
