Save Me; Nigeria

Save Me; Nigeria

 

Have you ever tasted pains

Nor swallowed suffering like pills

On an empty plate?

If you haven’t: thank God for your position…

 

Laziness not the chief hitch of my people

Civil-rights dished out our meals in a broken pot

Our leaders and dogs are not peerless

Equality, ask not why but why not.

 

Their only truth is good mourning

However, check your watch.

Our oil-well Judas thirty pieces of silver

Pocketing poverty, ask not why but why not.

 

Brothers, sisters and parents

Mar and scar my able-flesh

This nation is a no Hamlet

Save me… Aso Rock

 

Biggest amongst the west

Yet,

Our leaders prowl misjudging

The prowlers as innocent

 

The prince of Hamlet

Now goes outside his assignment

Save me;

Mother democracy is dead.
