The Oracle Eventually Broken


I like adding life to lifeless lives that is why I cannot do without creative writing, because it is a way of touching some hopeless lives

1. When oracle is speaking

Everywhere becomes silent, when

His pauses would make

A Drop of pin

Heard loud and clear

2. After oracle finishes speaking

No one talks again

Not even a question

Could be raised that

Is the end of the meeting

3. Everyone rises to go

To their respective places

Whether you are contented

Or nay with his sayings

Or decisions matter not to him

4. He was the most

Dreaded person in the

Land because he wields

Much power among people

And many of the outsiders know him

5. He was nick-named

Oracle because when the

Founding fathers of the

Land were departing, they

Gave him keys to them

6. So that when encountered

Any hiccups as per

Running the land he

Should use the key

To unlock the door to ‘em

7. On seeing movements at

Door, the unseen doors

They promised to arise

And offer him solution

To whatever it is that’s the problem

8. Founding fathers were four

For they were said

To be of other

Color thence called albinos

By many old people in the land

9. They were assumed to

Have disappeared for their

Bodies wert neither seen

Nor could their tombs

Be pointed to by anyone

10. They wield so much

Power during their days

By which they protect

Land from enemies and

Established land in the area.

11. Not as if they

All departed once but

One after another in

Mysterious circumstances did they

Left this world of turmoil

12. Each of them has

Different power which they

Combine for effective use

And while leaving they

Have called him to a side


13. The last one was

Assumed to have handed

Over all the four

Keys to him and

Instructed him of its usage

14. A key would not

Operate without the other

Three, that was the

Circulated theorem and having

Known that, none raise tongue against him

15. None talked against his

Leadership style though at

The initial he started

Well, for he started

On a compassionate level

16. As the founding fathers

Were compassionate so was

He on the grounds

Building on the ideals

Of those ancient warriors

17. But when his first

Child who was a

Female grew he erred

In judgement and exalted

His daughter above all

18. When his daughter did

Something despicable and wrong

He would hide under

A person to cover her

Misdeeds up punishing those without people

19. People started to groan

Under his leadership style

But since none has

The four keys nothing

Could be done to usurp him

20. Their continued groaning were

Soon heard by the

Superior One, who overruled

The usage of keys

Putting miry clay before his paths

21. He walked into the

Miry clay and plunged

Into the deepest realm

The usage of keys

Couldn’t save him except people

22. Those he has wronged

Looked and laughed him

To scorn, that Superior

One knows the best

Way of handling terrible people

23. He was reduced to

Nothing before them yet

The land continued to

Exist, by the time

He would leave the position

24. Things have changed, when

He speaks, people talk

Countered him. He felt

The humiliation was much

And he thinks death preferred

25. One day he was

Found in his room

Lying lifeless on the

Ground as he has

Gone to the world beyond.

26. The acclaimed Oracle was

Finally broken, his children

Were not to be

Referenced again in the

Land for they ‘ve had enough.

You will be healed soon. I am sure. Time is a great healer, people say and I have experienced it.

Olusegen I will read them. I do not work. My problem is concentration. I won't read unless I can fully concentrate. I just got my computer working March of this year 2020. It was down since May of 2019. I understand the frustration you feel. I have a problem concentrating caused by the stress of being hacked. I am not fully healed yet.

OLUSEGUN (author) from NIGERIA on March 16, 2020:

Okay, Okay. I will Thanks for that.

Business would not allow you to read much a day. As for me, it is electricity and data in Nigeria that prevent me from reading more and more and writing more and more here...

Diane Denison from Cincinnati Ohio on March 16, 2020:

I want to read them all. But it takes a long time to read . I read a few a day. Keep on writing.

OLUSEGUN (author) from NIGERIA on March 11, 2020:

I appreciate you reading through, and I am delighted that you like it.
