WHY WE NO LONGER BLUSH

                              WHY  WE  NO  LONGER  BLUSH.
Greed  just  caused  a  barricade
Named  road  block,
My  rusted  tooth  brush  is  been
Pasted  with  mud,
Blood  is  the  chalk  on  my
Children’s  black  board,
Darkness  has  made  my  vision
Blind  with  sawdust,
The  society  is  presently  corruption
Drunk,
My  skin  is  now  thicker  than
The  elephants  tusk.
Prosperity  is  an  abstract  tense
To  my  leaders  ears,  
Her  desk  is  the  nest  for  corrupt
Birds.
These  foundation  needs  urgent
Salvation,
Political  elite  believe  in  dehydration
Clothed  with  frustration.
Dehumanization  is  the  logo  for
Each  progressive  union,
How  is  it  done  in  Pluto?
That  astronauts  dream  to  travel
Like  she  harvests  gold.
Niger  is  my  home
The  future  looks  like  a  shredding
Rope,
Major  infants  are  infected  with
Running  nose.
Wealth  is  a  test  not  show  of
Strength
Even  the  beggar  can  become  
My  president
If  he  dreams  well
And  furnish  his  sense,
Be  prepared  to  help
Distribute  smiles  without  
Collecting  rents.
                                                                                                                       HABIB  AKEWUSOLA.
