The New Government by LifeofEl(m): 1:33pm On Nov 23, 2018
The New Government
With the hopes of the young
Ideals of the old, not a chance for the young
They keep up the poker face for who though?
The literates of an illiterate system
A system that kills dreams

The New Government
Please tell us a story of four years wanting another
A story that never gets old
Or a story of pointing fingers

The New Government
The puppets of a puppeteer
Strings pulled from ghost accounts
Ghost accounts that grow fat daily
A watcher laments

The New Government
Where information is never true
Workforce making prejudice decisions
A government of the people for the pipu by the people
Deaf ears are a thing in a new government
Will the green get greener, or the white whiter
I ponder on this?

The New Government with promises of old
A promise on the tale
Tale of the unsung heroes
The heroes of valour
The pacesetters of the old

The New Government
Tell us how the naira grows lesser by the day
A naira who was a king, the king to all
The naira of an old dream
A government that gives a thousand for a million

The New Government
Should I continue to wait for what you promised?
Should the labour of the heroes past go in vain?
Ponder on this I shall
Till I see unity and peace you preach
And wait for godot
