See Poverty

From the West to the East
Up the North, down the South.
Kobo and Naira rob Nigerians" thought.
Their presence of mind is taking to rest
And thus seizes the most eloquent among them.

Kobo and Naira snatch Nigerians" thought 
These hazard modify their thinking faculty
To only their ways.
For their ways is where they cast rest.

Poverty-sick must seek
A comfortable rest of mind
Through any available means.
Little wonders how it will be a shameful agreement
To the desperate course that occasions its way.
