Money, Sex & Power – Poem by Selasie Bulmuo

There’s a new language

So cool so trendy

If you can’t speak it

You must as well be an alien

‘Cos you my friend will seem so strange


The world has evolved

Technology is king

Fast is now

Slow is so old

Unless you can translate your speech

Into our 3 worded lingua

Don’t bother talking

Until you can speak money, sex and power.


Haven’t you heard?

That money talks

If you haven’t got some

You have no credentials

You might as well leave for space, alien

The world is not interested

But don’t  bore us with talk

Show us some action


How many followers have you got?

If none, you’ve no pulling power

No one to control no strings to pull?

Come on sir, don’t be a joker

We ain’t listening to someone like you

If it doesn’t look good, we don’t want in


It’s all about the body

Can you make me feel good?

No time to reminiscence

About the glorious hey days

There’s no logic in your wisdom


If you are selling the three kings

We are definitely buying

All your goods must bear their logo

Don’t waste our time if you ain’t got them

I mean, money, sex, and power


Fast action, that’s what we want

All packaged very nicely

At least in one of these three

Come on you, we want some

Money, Sex and Power

 Are you hooked yet? Careful….

    1. It’s seems to always come down to the issue of control, doesn’t it? Ultimately, I think that is what the human is looking for. being able to control our own lives and circumstances at the very least.
