Nigeria

Written by: Adesina Idris Dolapo

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!
