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
Our leaders prowl misjudging
The prowlers as innocent
The prince of Hamlet
Now goes outside his assignment
Mother democracy is dead.
