Indeed A Giant [poem] by AbdulFattah(m): 8:44am On Jan 06, 2013
INDEED A GIANT
...
GROWING UP AND MATURE
I HAVE COME TO BE PROUD OF MY
MOTHERLAND
FOR HER MANY FEATS AND ACHIEVEMENTS
INFACT, SHE HAS EARNED THE ALIAS
GIANT OF AFRICA!
MY DEAR MOTHERLAND, I’LL ALWAYS BE
PROUD OF YOU
FOR YOU ARE INDEED A GIANT OF AFRICA
...
MY MOTHERLAND
PROMINENT FOR POVERTY AND
INFAMOUS FOR CORRUPTION
WHERE POLITICS IS A FULL-TIME
OCCUPATION
WHERE IT IS THE EASIEST CHANNEL TO
PROFUSION
I WILL ALWAYS BE PROUD OF MY
MOTHERLAND
FOR SHE IS INDEED A GIANT
...
MY MOTHERLAND
WHERE MATERIALISM IS THE ORDER OF
THE DAY
WHERE MONEY CAN TAKE YOU ALL THE
WAY
WHERE THE PEOPLE FIGHT EVERYDAY
I WILL ALWAYS BE PROUD OF YOU
FOR YOU ARE INDEED A GIANT
...
MY MOTHERLAND
WHERE THE PRESIDENT THINKS HIS
POWER ABSOLUTE
WHERE LEADERS RECEIVE ALLOWANCES
FOR ALL THEY DO
WHERE LAW-MAKERS CLAMOUR FOR
SALARY BOOST
I WILL ALWAYS BE PROUD OF YOU
FOR YOU ARE INDEED A GIANT
...
MY MOTHERLAND
WHERE JUSTICE USES SPECTACLES
AND THE COURT BEFRIENDS THE WELL-TO-
DO
WHERE VIOLENCE IS THE LAST HOPE OF
THE DESTITUTE
I WILL ALWAYS BE PROUD YOU
FOR YOU ARE INDEED A GIANT
...
MY MOTHERLAND
WHERE REFINERIES ARE NOT WORKING
WHERE, BY THE DAY, FUEL PRICE IS RISING
WHERE FILLING STATIONS ARE
EVERYWHERE BUT FUEL IS SCANTY
I WILL ALWAYS BE PROUD YOU
FOR YOU ARE INDEED A GIANT
...
MY MOTHERLAND
WHERE THE AVERAGE POLICEMAN HAS A
POT-BELLY
AND THE ONLY LANGUAGE HE
UNDERSTANDS IS MONEY
WHERE SECURITY IS JUST FOR THE
WEALTHY
I WILL ALWAYS BE PROUD OF YOU
FOR YOU ARE INDEED A GIANT
...
MY MOTHERLAND
WHERE THE ROADS ARE BATTLEFIELDS
PLIED MOSTLY BY JALOPIES
WHERE ALL CARS ARE FROM OVERSEAS
I WILL ALWAYS BE PROUD OF YOU
FOR YOU ARE TRULY A GIANT
...
MY MOTHERLAND
WHERE EVERY COMMODITY IS IMPORTED
WHERE EVERY BIG COMPANY IS IMPORTED
AND WHERE ALL EXPERTS ARE NOT
EXEMPTED
I WILL ALWAYS BE PROUD OF YOU
FOR YOU ARE INDEED A GIANT
...
O MY MOTHERLAND!
I KNOW NOT HOW ELSE TO EULOGISE YOU
I KNOW NOT WHAT ELSE TO SAY ABOUT
YOU
VERILY, NO LAND CAN OUTDO YOU
I WILL FOREVER BE PROUD OF YOU
FOR YOU ARE INDEED A GIANT!
