LET'S NOT CLAMOUR IN REGRETS WHEN WE COULD BE JUBILANT OF WHAT IS AND ONCE WAS

NIGERIA @60 POEM BY BARRISTER ONOME I. A.

Arise ohh compatriots

For Nigeria calls in pain

She is saddened for years lost

But believes it was never in vain

Tears replace laughter

While the rich prey on the poor

The glory of her youth is soon forgotten

As its tales have turned a satire

 

Let's not clamour in regrets

When we could be jubilant of what is and once was

A pride land of richness that transcends mere wealth

A home of greatness infused beings

Who are actively ready to portray intellect and humor

We stand firm, gallant and proud

Showcasing diversity in cultures

 

Yet now the giant is small

Creeping like a toddler on its knees

Becoming that which it fought hard not to be

A dependent state

Nigeria is a decade past it's golden jubilee

The hour has come for change to emanate

Let's shadow our vices with inbuilt strengths
