The masses are also the problem

It is no news that the pigs are fat
As a result of the embezzlements
Taking politics as a personal farm
Eating from the labors of the ants…

I haven’t crossed the shores for sure
But I will place a bet, that wouldn’t fret
Or retract, having seen Eagles crawl
Passing piggery genes unto eaglets.

Accustomed to suffering and smiling
Whereas they hold the key to end the pains
Instead, they chose, fixing and buying
Assets for pigs to whom bills and taxes are paid.

    If the number of poor people in a nation outnumbers the rich people in same nation, that Nation is said to be poor. And if the situation is opposite, the Nation is said to be rich.

    One great issue with Nigeria and other African countries is the lack of commitment to tackle poverty instead they celebrate poverty.

    The Politicians and other folks resemble for the crisis in these regions are fewer than the masses suffering from their wrong actions, failure and loot. If only the masses could stand up tall…. Nigeria and other African countries would be great.
