Nigeria: Nepotism

We are not yet a centuary old
Though we are Africa’s flagship

Our flagpole is a broken horn
Dirty degrading, raged and torn.

Its fabric is a rag of a torn hope
Lost in a trench of a challenger deep.

Have in mind, challenges are but;
A good propeller to heights and great.

Great is a Nation, that stand tall
Against tribalism and apocalyptic fall.

We don’t need calls to fall the trees
Of nepotism, rooted in our homes.

Nepotism is a man of few capacities
Positioned in by his blood relatives,

Relatively dimming the opportunities
Of the very most qualified abilities.

Mostly, nepotism is a hug and shake
That will hardly give but often take.
