Poem: Nigeria! Yes Nigeria


naija

Nigeria

Nigeria! Yes Nigeria

My motherland

A land of diverse laughter

Different tribes, different languages

And great delicacies

Nigeria! Yes Nigeria

My motherland

Built to scatter

Built with confused souls

Going on a merry go round leadership

Dissecting and forgetting

The true warriors to save thy neck

Nigeria, my motherland

Filled with the world’ best talent

Cursed before they ever sparkle

To almost or never conquer

Nigeria, my motherland

Burying talents with envious hearts

And injustice

Nigeria! Most religious, most diabolic

Nigeria, ask only for mercy in prayers

And not for division
