Best Poem of Chris Jibero

Amiss

Amiss, amiss, amiss!
Something is amiss with my country
Spiritually and physically rich
But apparently presented as poor
Billions of our money given wings
Like hawks that disappear
When chicks are forcefully taken
Trillions stashed down the drains
To fertilize parched lands
Where hussies and gigolos live
The cause being greed
Nursed and nurtured by the elite
A few insatiable pigs
That profess religion
But know not God

Mothers compete to outdo fathers
I weep, I weep, I weep uncontrollably
For there is no one to console me
And my heart ...

Read the full of Amiss

Spoilers

Our hurriedly erected edifice
Brimming with treasure
Neatly laid by benevolent spirits
Is brazenly despoiled
And the spoils recklessly spoilt
By a consuming cult
Of competitors sporting agbada
And khaki
Who bring us lurid laurels

[Hata Bildir]
