Where are the Kings

by Olulu, the King not from Zulu


Where are they?

Let me at them.

I want them, and I want them now,

I pray, “God grant me patience”,

But He should hurry.

Where are they?

At least if Mohammed doesn't go to the mountain,

Then the mountain should come to Mohammed.

And even if the Red Sea had not parted,

Moses and the Israelites will have swum across.

Where are they?

Where are the Kings?

I want to stand before them,

If not then they should stand before me, abi?

For the Good Book says,

“Seeth a man who excels in his work, he will stand before Kings;

And not before unknown men”. (Proverbs 22:29).

I don come O!

Where are the Kings?
