Nigerian Writer and political economist Professor Michael Ogueke has wished his reader a pleasant start to the week. He composed a poem for his readers on his social media profile, which went as follows:

Lord, I hope this day is good
I’m feelin’ empty and misunderstood
I should be thankful, Lord, I know I should
But Lord I hope this day is good
Lord, have you forgotten me
I’ve been prayin’ to you faithfully
I’m not sayin’ I’m a righteous man
But Lord I hope you understand
I don’t need fortune and I don’t need fame
Send down the thunder, Lord. Send down the rain
But when you’re plannin’ just how it will be
Plan a good day for me
Lord, I hope this day is good
I’m feelin’ empty and misunderstood
I should be thankful, Lord. I know I should
But Lord, I hope this day is good
You’ve been the King since the dawn of time
All that I’m askin’ is a little less crime
It might be hard for the devil to do
But it would be easy for you
Lord, I hope this day is good
I’m feelin’ empty and misunderstood
I should be thankful, Lord. I know I should
But Lord I hope this day is good
