Poem: Which Way Nigeria? by lordthunderbolt(m): 7:55pm On Jun 03, 2015
Deep under the surface

Lies a strange calm at the terrace

Blood boil burn in those darkened furnace

Strange spirits strain strange shortage

Over the calm

Lies maximum disturbances on the palm

Who knows my qualms?

Who feels the spam

Who knows the scam?

 

Outward I boil and shine

The eagles gather in the shrine

While they ''pour'' sacred wine

'Our' foetuses starve while they dine

When I raised my voice in shame

Educated illiterates trade blame

'Our' heritage became lame

Barren poachers know the game

On the surface everything seems calm

 

On our sandals

Remains great scandals

Intellectual vandals

Makes even the learneth to ponder

On the surface strange works of wonders

Blinds even the canon fodders

While our country men bend to conquer

Many things fidget asunder
