The lockdown hunger is a guillotine Executioner The hangman of the poor is the opportunistic robber; nefarious officials stealing higher than 419ers Only good at making laws foisted round our jugulars
Why no drums in Nigeria beating the revolutionary alarm Drums to inspire valour in the youths despite of any harm Most we all surrender and be dump like this forever? To the shades of religion, we always seek for cover
The disease of myopia amongst us is in gigantic scale Not even an atom of our education could keep us safe Able-bodied men become broken limbs and powdered bone Most ladies is Nigeria think alike like some Barbie clone
We continue to follow blinding light down a crooked path The clamour of mammoth poverty will be the aftermath We are not just cowards only to a virus caught by shaking hands For there is no inscription on the epitaph of a common man
After Corona, crime will makeup her face like a naughty street girl Attracting young bloods, where countless gangs will gel I see springs of ambition flooded through the gutters Normal ways of living certainly will begin to stutter
A fresh master plan reverberates in their secret places And is felt across the globe, testing all races The pyramid has no place for the ecological balance of the poor The tales of Revelation makes me ponder more
The exploits of technology brings forth a Savage culture The media is the make-up artist of the face of a Vulture To the claws of bio-terrorism, Africa we fall prey Covid-19 is the confusion and world power are ready to play
Rivers of Tears will be shed and all religion will loudly pray While our politician’s loot will end-up in a foriengn shopping spray Like the avowal of failure, we say everything is to blame Good economy comes with a cost. Are we ready to play it’s game?
So like a trabadour, let my poem traverse the nation Changing our mindset to start the revolt conversation The Mutants of corruption have made Nigeria the home to stay Join the uncanny X-Men to fight and save the day.
