|Now We Are Free. by joseph1832(m): 10:07pm On Aug 17, 2015|
Darkness looms and despair creeps,
The heaps of skin alike,
Bound for ships ashore,
A sail away we sail.
Chains abound we cry,
For our tears and scream are loud;
For wretchedness and hopelessness
We see, and we wept for our darkness has begun.
At last we are free
Or so we thought,
Suppression and repression he brings,
Exploitation and stagnation he seeks,
Whips and lashes he used,
guns and cannons he use,
Sorrow, tears and blood he sanctioned,
On any who defies his creed and law.
Now we are free
For free we are,
In righteous rancor we applause,
Only for him to laugh and merry,
For he knows we are still blurry.
He blurs us not with guns and cannons,
But with ideas and economies of scale,
He scales and manipulates what he most,
For the era of whips, guns and cannons is gone,
Now, the era of science and technology,
Thus, the era of neo-colonialism begins.

I've given up hope. Nairaland panders to anti-intellectual stuff
|Re: Now We Are Free. by joseph1832(m): 6:33am On Aug 18, 2015|
AllNaijaBlogger:Nairaland doesn't pander to anti-intellectual stuff. Nairaland is driven by traffic and poems doesn't move traffic. Have you ever seen any poem that made FP move up to 5-6000 page views?
So Nairaland is not anti intellectual, Nigerians are! Or most Nigerians are. For me, I really don't care about FP, I stopped bothering about it a long time ago.
