The Igbo tribe is a bight
Larger than the wildest bay
The Hausa tribe is a bight
Wilder than the largest gulf,
The Yoruba’s are also a bight
Deeper than the deepest depth.
There are other tribes in dark
Clamoring for a torch of light.
Why engage in a bloody fight
When it is not solely right.
We are of several statutory parts
Dried and hot, warming paths,
Of the coastline and River lives;
But the militants are talking knives.
Oil boom has its twist and turns
Diversity slams a bight of elbows
Economically, broken are our jaws
Inciting war of uncommon laws.
I understand you are bothered
About broken promises altered
Hey come sit around the fire
Let’s make of sticks a broom desire.
Note, for this coast to be stronger
Dialogue is all we need, my brother.
