Force Majeure Denunciation

We the People, We were never consulted, invited or agreed to the the 1999 constitution never resolved to live together as drafted by the Military lies in the document, Invisible, indissoluble or the sovereignty claimed were rhetoric of falsehood, some crooked criminals who should be made to face Justice, crafted a document appended their signatures, under a dictatorial agenda, silencing us with the guns imposed opinion fitting their agenda and called it constitution We the People Is a lie, How come my father was not there ? My mother, my brothers, sisters were never there even my own opinion is not represented, Yet they say we the People, t am not signatory to their lies I was never part of their agenda that is why I do not accept their oppression We the People where old men who should be great grand fathers are seeking position of power, where Politicians are busy stealing where Police men abuse my rights or stand on the way to collect bribes where dullards in the senate decide my fate, and they are too big to know my state We the people Is a Fraud, I was never part of it I never signed my state or destiny to a sect Now I see why I cannot achieve my dream why I cannot fulfill destiny I am locked up in a cell The criminals are fattened they call them Politician They fly abroad from medical care Leaving no health facility for me they bask in gaudy wealth No hope for my future Yet they lied on me that i signed my destiny away by a constitution Citizens denunciation of Nigerian 1999 constitution
