The Obi effect

A single mouth is hard to find
Amongst a people of tribalistic minds...
The slightest wind is never wedged
We rather our townsmen unqualified
Than an outsider most qualified;
Religion and politics gets it amplified...

Outside the window, we most times bind
But politics scares and makes us blind
Because we left the race for crooks to ride
And they chose to be so uncivilized...
Suffering has befallen the land
Yet our leaders embezzle and fold their hands...

Out of the blues, came a chance to rebuild
The unfaltering never disappeared
"Nigerian youth's choice" he was named
Although sensationalized,
The movement was an organic trend
A new Nigeria should not be hampered...

"The Obidients", as they were called,
Were wiser and ready to cut off weeds...
Voluntarily, they played their strings and beads
And were ready to uproot any evil seed
Labour Party the underdog, was the Shepherd
That will cleanse our dear land...

The wave was a type, rare to find
Echoing; "no more room for half bake breads"...
But after all was hopefully said,
For selfish gain some aided and abetted
In vote rigging for the rotten eggs
Win or lose, the grumbling voices were heard
And I hope we get it right, moving forward.
