|A Poem For Nigeria by ebamma(m): 12:42pm On Jul 04, 2012|
u were once a fertile and naturally blessed land inhabited by black people,who lived in peace with each other and worshipped the gods of their forefathers.One day the british came and destroyed your fertile lands,stole your resources and took your people as slaves.The brought a foreign ruler to colonize u,one of them his name was Lord lugard,and Lugard without caring about the will of your people joined your northern and southern people together,one day Lugard's wife decide to give u the name Nigeria.Oil was discovered on your lands,but the oil only make the rich richer and the poor poorer,your heroes like awolowo,azikiwe,abiola,fela,bola ige are dying or already dead while your villains like obasanjo,ibb,t y danjuma, are still alive and holding u hostage.The brought in a dying yaradua to rule your people and made a fisherman's son president after his death,the steal billions from you that could have been used to take care of the less-privileged,Every day i always cry when i think of the beauty you were before the whitemen then the soldiers and after obasanjo and co.came and destroyed you.for my love for you i cry for my beloved country.
