When Push Comes To Shove


When oceans are  ragging beyond their banks
And  hungry Lions are roaming the street and untamed
When the heaven give no rain or dew
And the fields are no longer green but brown
When the blossoming flowers wither in unison
And the fig trees decide hi to yield no more
I shall Arise, shine for my light is here!

When terrorism is as familiar as the sunshine
And  violence gather itself like a pregnant cloud
When Safety is like pieces of ice in the desert
And secured abode is like Koh-I-Noor diamond
When tension descends  like morning dew
And  the rage of the poor is suddenly activated
His Secret place shall be my permanent abode

When dwindling economy is suffocating nations
And a barrel of crude is competing with a bag of sachet water(in price)
When dollars is running at the speed of light
And Naira is badly injured and totally motionless
Even the genteel men are convulsing in agony
And the moguls are falling into the pit of shame and debt
I shall rejoice cos the abundance of the seas are mine (Isaiah 60:8)

When our leaders are completely confused and clueless
And our lawmakers are swimming in the pool of ignorance
When our kings  are new weaned infants
Even our churches are sick and yearning for healing
When our preachers are cowards and chronic solipcists
And the children are rebellious and unruly
For the nation and kingdom that will not serve me shall perish

When the future seems to be in the past
And the great dreams are turning nightmare
when picturesque visions are  fading and blur
And Change metamorphosed into short-changed
When expectations are like candle in the furnace
And all hope seems to be dashed
Like Abraham I will hope against hope cos CHRIST is my hope

When hit songs are mere noise and agitated jabberwocky
And  Pariah are treated as aristocratic celebrities
When teetotallers are seen as weaklings
And bibbers are being perceived as the real men
When Morality is hoar and indency is trending
Even our virgins are even ashamed of their virtues
The word of the Lord shall remain my standard
