Corruption


Our resources they siphone
to corruption, we are prone
Running our government like lotto
embezzlement no doubt by then is pronto

From constructively criticizing them, the feeble shy away
Taking the bull by the horn, the courageous said no way

Watching people
counting peebles
i tend to loose hope
feeling like i can't cope

At a time i asked
is it in our nature
to forever be under pressure?

To our problems we need to pay attention
for once in a lifetime it is our nation

The high and mighty has to cease oppression
before advising the terrorists to cease operation

With your selfless coperation
we can make Nigeria a greater nation

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
