Is not
 Poverty alleviation
            Community well being
            Strategic provision of
Food
            Clothing
            Shelter        
            Medi-care for the poor and underprivileged
         In our society,
         Mobile clinics
         Collaborations with commissions, agencies
         and institutions to alleviate poverty
         rather,
         the language of poverty
         hides in painful utterance
         of
         flood victims
         casualties of militia insurgence
         Mothers in painful childbirth in trado-medical homes
the jobless man in Amukoko, Ajegunle, Agege, Ijora ‘badia,
          Jakande Estates, Ijeshatedo, Iwaya, Ilaje, Bariga, Makoko…
         the woman who breastfeeds
         her husband and adult children
         the family whose girl-child
         needs kidney transplant
         the neighbor whose daughter
         trades sex for food
         the young unemployed graduate
         whose parents are tired
         of allocating unending monthly transport fares
         the unborn child
         whose bearer has no pre-natal care
         and the newly born child
         whose mother says a tearful prayer;

         “My child, my God will provide….
         And protect you….
These indeed
         are some of the strongholds
         of the language of poverty.

Poverty is no man's friend, poverty is bastard, poverty is hated, poverty something no one wish to experience. I personally I hate poverty.
I reject poverty in Jesus name!
