Just like prison congestion,
You must login to vote
Our courts are lumbered up with pressure
By different litigants with divergent decision.
The increasing court cases is another legal wahala
Triggered off by some litigants with wahala.
Should lawyers complain?
I guess that should be their wahala.
Court seems to be second home to lawyers;
Lawyers who want to cure litigants' wahala,
Wahala not meant for all lawyers with
Wahala bullet proof.
Agreed, law does not synonymous to court so
Society should also respect lawyers who don't
Go to court to solve their webs of wahala.
My brain understands, many things fuelled this wahala,
Which has turned to be litigants' headache,
Needs to go through clients' interviews.
To some, to ensure compliance with agreement Signed by other party.
To some to fight for their fundamental rights under our constitution.
To some out of ego...
To some, to claim inheritance entitled to
Or believed to be entitled to.
To some to ensure offenders don't go unpublished.
To some to divorce that spouse on legal grounds,
Founded on Section 15 of the Matrimonial Causes Act.
To some for infringement on their intellectual Property guaranteed by Copyright Law and
Webs of wahala justifiable by our laws.
Hope this wahala will cough out naira?
Legal poem is my type of poem made known in The Nation Newspaper in 2008 during interview on my poetry works in Nigeria.
Wahala means problem in yoruba language, a tribe in Nigeria.
