The Rugged Nation

In her womb they all strongly contend,
For that which she would jealously defend.

Totally in their thought have they torn her apart,
But only to mistake her for one that is not smart.

For her in haste have they laid an ambush,
That she might die in their destructive bush.

Daily they seek to murder her precious progress,
And always planning her fall in their 'glorious' congress.

Her peace they almost murdered like a criminal,
And her very life ill-treated as though abnormal.

Ho! How NIGERIA in her unity has remained unbroken,
Even in the face of the attacks suffered she in the open.
