NigeriaA
Nation of rags and richesB
An individual's wealth is greaterC
And far above the common wealthD
-
Land flowing with milk and honeyE
Where the people are pauperizedF
And feed from dust bins NigeriaA
Now the global poverty headquartersG
-
The rich grow richerC
Cornering and convertingH
National resources to personal wealthD
Stashing billions of dollarsG
-
In accursed foreign accountsI
At the citizens detrimentF
Who groan under the weight of abject povertyF
Created by so called leadersG
-
Fit to lead only animals butF
Who pitch us one against the otherC
To kill one another like vile animalsJ
To promote their selfish and wicked agendaA
-
Of holding power fore'erC
The youth are cajoled into submissionK
With the ignoble title of leaders of tomorrowL
Yet that tomorrow never comesM
-
The crooked elders the centre stageN
Like collosus have taken dominanceO
No hope for the massesB
Are yet to realizeP
-
The real enemyF
Are those who claim to leadF
Whose only motivationK
Are greed and avariceQ
