skeleton of the giant

Last Updated on April 15, 2024 by Joshua Isibor


Bony, skinny, he lies flat

Tiny, sunny, his life’s mat

Snoring, suffering, smiling

The skeleton of a giant.

Headless, lifeless, moody

Paintless, pathless, muddy

A giant in shame

A skeleton in pain,

No flesh, no blood.


They call you a thief

You steal in broad daylight.

They call you a liar

You pray in lies,

They call you A fool,

You cheat yourself

They call you lunatic,

You defecate on your body,

Headless Goliath;

Powerless and weightless


Religion has stolen your brain

Politics has cut off your head,

Tribalism has stunted you.

Hate has doubled your foolishness,

The skeleton of a giant

Smiling without a head,

Breathing without flesh

Dead and gone.

Bombs are your sufferings

Skulls are your gifts

Deaths are your achievements,

Mass graves, sing for you

Bigotry rises your sun,

Headless Goliath big for nothing.


Selfishness is your crown

Greed is your palace

Nepotism is your anthem

Division is your pursuit

Kill, pursue, overtake

Nothing more you chant


Blood drown angels

Losses screw saints

Tears ignite doom

Headless Goliath, whitened sepulcher.


Heartless, mean, and gloomy

Dark, wicked, and disastrous

Cancerous, ailments, harshness,

Coarse, fierce, furious

Moaning and grumbling giant

Devilish, barbaric, phosphoric

Wretched giant, rich yet poor


You count deaths

You spy peace

You bomb harmony

And scatter melody,

Headless giant, beast of a nation


Monsters in suits

Aliens in robes

Demons in leadership

Skeletons,walking the dead.


Spirits of war

Souls of destruction

Bodies of tsunamis

Coats of earthquake

Hands of coronavirus

A headless Goliath

Trekking to hell with nations

Whispers of demolition

Conspiracy of silence

A full dose of ungodliness

The skeleton of a giant


They call you monkey and you live in the trees

They call you chimpanzee

And your heart is darker than your skin,

They call you ghost

And you scare children,

Headless Goliath, scary beast.


They call you animal

And you live in cave

They call you slave

And you vow not to grow,

Headless monster.


Ashes make your day

Dust make your night

Graves wake your dawn,

Shameless Goliath.


Oil boils you

Crude crucify you

Dishonesty feed you

District entangle you

Integrity hates you passionately.


Love is roasted

Lust is titled

Your future has shattered already

Headless Goliath, spineless

Weak, baseless.


A robot, remotely controlled

Within and without

Fools, dying for fools

Fanatics defending Lucifer

Extremists; annihilating.


Headless Goliath, hungry and poor

Thirsty, starving, dying

Dead,in short

Lifeless giant

Statue, corrupt,corrupted, corruption.


Thieves, robbers, money doublers

Scavengers, looters, killers

Murderers, chokers, stranglers, strangers

Unjust, unfaithful, ungodly

Woes betide you all.


You plant terror by day

You harvest money daily

You sow horror by night

You reap wealth daily

You dig graves upon graves

Yet you dazzle in gold daily

Woe upon you all.


You make nations your games

Chess, scrabble, draft, ludo

You win, win, and win

You bet and bet and bet

Still, you keep winning,

Headless Goliaths, woe unto you.


You sold your head

You lost your spine

You mortgaged your heart

And rented your soul

Your spirit in wanderlust,

Shameless Goliath, old furniture.


All these deaths shall hunt you

All these souls shall haunt you

All these spirits shall taunt you,

No peace for the wicked

Not even in the graveyard,

Wither thou goest.
