Yours and mine


In Nigeria
Wealth and weeping
Want and reaping
Tinted pleasure
Sinful leanings
Checkpoint robberies
Daylight rigging

Restive south’ners
Propaganda
OPEC quotas
Poisoned waters
Flawed unseatings
Reasoned verdicts
Sword unsheathings

Aso rumbles
Party stalwarts
Secret meetings
Whiteman sightings
Mass kidnappings
Cash transactions
Drastic actions

Unemployment
Yahoo option
Double standards
Fight corruption
Keke NAPEP
Pipe explosions
Crawling traffic
Surging oceans

One Nigeria
No Bakassi
Census figures
Looted billions
Crashing airplanes
Sans blackboxes
PHCN
Blacked out cities

Bloated contracts
Shrunken children
Increased tariffs
Labour congress
This our country
Work in progress…
