State of the Nation.

I don't know who we got to this point as a country - Nigeria
The government is contented just to see everyone living according to their criteria
I don't even know how to describe the state of Nigeria
It's mostly calamity with so many people living in mass hysteria
What's with African countries or this is with countries that ends with "ria" like Liberia?
They said we are developing but what's the difference between us and Syria?
Everyone is blinded by mad loyalty to tribalistic politicians, it's in every area
They speak in language alien to us as though they are from Bulgaria
They are not speaking the language we understand intentionally to confuse us as the Targarians
People who were elected into offices to serve us giving us terms and conditions like Siberia
They have taken away the sweetness, eaten too deep like bacteria
They give citizens crumbs but you see these shameless leaders walk into the best cafeteria
I've imagined having super powers so I can waste them publicly like the Assyrian
I can't say what the problem is but sometimes it looked like we have been cursed
Cursed to always have the worst of options in leadership
A lot of people would sell off their future for just a few Naira notes
Money that is not enough to feed for the week yet they slave for 4-8 years
We elect the same greedy politicians every 4 years, recycle them and still cry foul
When we have those selling their future for just a fraction, even their soul
We don't even understand our rights enough to fight for it
And when we do, we quickly sell it back to the highest bidder
How are we expected to even make the country bigger?
People living as it comes with no end goal in mind
I still haven't seen any politician that is truly kind
We empowered them by slaving for them and it's disheartening


Thank you for your time.

My pen doesn't bleed, it speaks, with speed and ease.

Still me,

My tongue is like the pen of a ready writer.
