BROTHER


Mother! Mother!! Mother!!!

Mighty you are with others,

Your son is in another man

Slavery.

 

Your beauty as wide as 23, 074.425 s.qkm

You lie between Latitude 4.29 north and

5.49 north equator

And in this mountains comes

Him that enslave your son

 

Exploiting, ranging and making

Empty in the sun.

Brother (Bakassi) your brother

And sisters, cry, fight, fast for your

Freedom from Friends

 

Labor hard us eighteen but your

Slavery made us seventeen,

Mother was not bless with children

The family tight is high

 

Your sacks are in a located Sister.

Mother your son is not like a

Doctor that goes out, not

Coming home.

Mother, mother bring brother

 

Back so he can pay our fees.

The son of cross River and Calabar River

Grand-son of the Atlantic

Come back brother, come back.
