Even In The Era Of Change by Olamilite: 4:38pm On Dec 23, 2017
A billion US dollar to fight Boko Haram
The technically defeated sect as claimed
Free flowing honey for battle ready ants
Even in the era of “change”

A fugitive was brought back to service
Via back door by members of the saint team
The wanted made to enjoy security cover
Even in the era of “change”

Court orders were bluntly disobeyed
By the same called to protect the law
The temple and officers therein were defiled
Even in the era of “change”

The national budget is synonymous to padding
Late presentation and passage turned norm
Poor implementation characterized the said acts
Even in the era of “change”

Roads are decorated with potholes of various sizes
Electricity became scarce while people pay more
The few privileged waste money on medical tourism
Even in the era of “change”

The fight against the monster corruption is one sided
Suspects were condemned without valid court order
While members of the ruling club are treated as saints
Even in the era of “change”

School were closed for months owing to strike
Infrastructural deterioration, left unattended to
The looting clique intimidates the common man
Even in the era of “change”

As the sovereign state's economy bit harder
Local industries are folding up in their hundreds
Millions are underemployed or unemployed
Even in the era of “change”
