Nigeria: We are not leopards

Hey! we are not leopards
That can not change their spots
School teaches us to compete
But right now, drop the books

The largest black nation
Should be doing better
Drop the competitions
We learnt on chalk and board

It has so misled us
Hence our Nation crumbles
Let us adopt teamwork
For our Nation to grow.

Hey! we are not leopards
That can not change their spots
Our poor mentality
Need a speedy u-turn.

The largest black nation
Should be doing better
Stop the awful mortgage
Of our children’s future.

We are not immortals
Night and dawn affect not
Let us make a good use
Of our enormous wealth.

Hey! we are not leopards
That can not change their spots
Enough of reoccurring
Painful drawbacks we get.

The largest black nation
Should be doing better,
Not locked and caged inside
Our own stupidity.

For just like charity
That does begin at home;
Our Nation’s growth
Depends so much on us.

Research Gaps

I have seen many books lie
In the shelf, stack up high
Without usage or consultation;
A useless dump of graduation
And for promotion, just publish
Or be left to rot and perish.

There are lots of researchers
But challenges prefer preachers
To build up faith, forsaking land;
When we have hammers in our hand
Before we kick-buckets and resign
To rebuild earth with great design.

Reinventing wheels is silly
Solution will come in a jiffy
If the fences of universities
Are taken away, and if lecturers
And researchers, aim for advancements
With an open door to their students.

I speak of the youth and mentors
Because while these growing tutors
Have picked up, mentoring careers
It is these students who will,
To the advancement columns fill
Growth and development, high as hill.
