Nigeria: Thirsty dicey

There was once a girl in paradise
Her future was bright, she ought to rise
Not until a bunch of ruthless swine
Overpowered her, and left her to die…

From withered flowers, gold turned to stone
Heritage of her unborn were sold
The falling raindrops had to do divert
And she metamorphosed into a desert

She had a shallow oasis left
In her lineage until her rebirth
But the swines placed their bail into it
Fetching every drop until there is nothing left

With the rising dehydrated tongues
Insurgencies escalated in turns
Now, her once beautiful paradise
Is on a radial for bombs rolling like dice.
