Nigeria

I wonder what a 
country
Will be so blessed
With rich wildlife, 
vegetation and 
poultry
Yet it remains so 
stressed!

Naija!
My country so rich 
yet so poor
Sitting nicely on the 
banks of the Benue 
and Niger!
Fastly crawling onto 
development yet so 
sure!

Full of so much 
beauty
Yet surrounded by 
thorns.
What a sight of pity
Left by her colonial 
master's scorns!

You will recover I 
pray
From these 
distractors who lead 
you astray!

    Until when shall we here of bad things happening around us? Africans destroy their own wealth because of greediness. Good stuff

    Your words relate to Africa in general, so I pray too for your country and mine. Hopefully we will all recover soon:) This is an eloquent write, thanks for sharing:)
