For years we’ve been as one
As five and six through thick and thin
My real brother from a different mother
Right until he sought another
A quest to be influential and powerful
Everyone wants this he argued
Doesn’t matter how you get it
The end justifies the means
True he got all he wanted:
Immunity to oppression
Shapely girls in all magnificence
Carousing cum jollity at the crest
This is the life!
I envied him at some points
But the voice of Ma echoed in my ear
Remember the son of whom you are
Six goes home today
En route to another place solo
The sky weeping its heart out
I’m doing the same myself
A boom from a barrel took the head off
Inter-fraternity clash victim they tagged
Eventuality was instant
The means ran over the end

What is the point in a brotherhood that wounds and gives pseudo-status? What is immunity to oppression if you can’t sleep with both eyes well closed?
Imagine the grieve, devastation and disappointment loved ones would go through; the deterioration of character, and the deleterious impacts on a potential great life.
Would you rather jeopardize the future to service the present? Tomorrow starts from today.
SAY NO TO CULTISM!!!
Live a good life. You deserve it.
