Birthday Poem for An ICON, Alh. Lukman Olayiwola Mustapha

By Sheu Suleiman Kayode

Shall we celebrate a man of honor?
Who to the world is a treasure
Treasure no scale can measure
He is LOM, world’s mentor.

Kwarans are blessed with gold
In LOM, for nothing will it be sold
A jewel to the globe, you ain’t be told
A Messiah to the world, behold

To us, you’re a precious gift
One who helps us get fit
A preacher of equity who hates cheat
LOM is a hero no man can beat

Are you worried of what LOM means?
An acronym of someone’s name it is
The name of the man of bliss
A man who promotes none but peace

He’s Lukman Olayiwola Mustopha
To many he’s an amazing father
who for free make available his feather
To fly into the sky high and higher

To his team, rebirth, he’s the Captain
A movement birthed not for self gain
But for Kwara to enjoy cool rain
Rain that makes their crops eternally reign

It’s world Lukman Olayiwola Mustopha day
I pray you God’s pleasure everyday
You will never go astray
Success in your endeavors, I pray.

I pray you longevity of life
Forever you’ll have good course to laugh
Not for anything would you shed tears
We’ll forever remain your love carrier
