As Naira Marley continues to push the envelope

He leaves observers more worried about consequences.
For they can see clearly
How his ways are making more to wander
Making them soften their bulwarks and breakers
Like ship obeying wind and tide
Like prey sitting still for the predator

Setting fire to his fantasies
Giving expression to them
Like Samson tying the tails
Of foxes
Letting them loose
To hasten destruction

Despite the pushback
Reveling in the wish persists
Riding excuses and unreason
Fastening these on
Impressionable minds
As conviction

Whereas from the most vivid memory
Comes the reminder that
Persuading with pleasure
And elevating pleasure
As the only purpose
Points in only one direction-destruction
