NIGERIA WE WAIL THEE


By Akin Ojumu

Nigeria, we wail thee,
Our own poor native land,
Though life and liberty may linger,
In bigotry we stand,
Nigerians all, and proud to starve,
Our grieving Motherland.

Our flag shall be shambolic,
That lies and injustice reign,
In chains or shackle dishonour’d,
And this we count as pain,
To hand on to our children
A banner with much stain.

The men that rule over us,
Are worst and not best of us,
With cruelty and barbarity,
Our lives are unbearable hell,
They wreck our wealth and ruin our health,
And helplessly we watch.

We now have as our ruler,
A man with unknown past,
He was female in college,
And his certificate was forged,
Yet with all his thugs and area boys,
No one dare question him.

Our ruler is a drug dealer,
In Chicago long time ago,
He forfeited his crime proceeds,
To the government of America,
This criminal is the ruler,
Of a people without shame.

O God of all creation,
Grant this our one request,
Help us to build a nation,
Where no man is oppressed,
And so with peace and plenty,
Nigeria may be blessed.
