O Nigeria A promising child in the day of yore Palm oil,cocoa,cotton and groundnut pyramid a live-wire of extant The booming flourish in the household of your three son Who betrayed your prospect that envy your peers A ghost of self you have become The death of boom of day of yore Awful land woe A specter that hound for life again
-Who milked you dried Devoured your oyster flesh and left empty shell Who drove you blind and hurled you into darkness Who amputate your feet and stagnate your pace Who shrink your flesh and made you frail Who starved your bloods and angered their spirit Who made your loins half-lettered to despise goodness of letter Who plant seed of discord to put your children asunder
-Let this query be a beaming torch light to unravel the truth Am pregnant with hope in prospect i stand Tomorrow shall beget good days to come All hands be on deck to usher in pleasant tomorrow!
