Incompetence in Aso Rock
incompetence seats imperviously in the rock,
watching his last drama in senility;
surrounded by old scoundrels as himself.
Same tyrant of yesteryear who through the powder invaded sanity,
stalling dreams by their guns.
incompetence foist on us by gangsters,
That robbed the destinies of thousand years
protected by criminals, feeding from proceed of fraud
joying in the decay called a country.
That British amalgam of 1914,
Incompetence desperate for power after several disgrace,
whines in tears like a baby at the third attempt.
soliciting empathy by emotions, clueless yet desperate, threatening
“The dog and the baboon would be soaked in blood”
and indeed, his dogs are killing the rest of us.
incompetence sleeps in the rock,
unaffected by the groaning of a people nestled in penury.
incompetence made the rock a domestic arena,
harbors kinsmen as attack dogs,
By nepotism stalls the progress of a Nation,
deluded and assuming that leadership is a cozy comfort away from sufferers.
incompetence is here to rule, Not a Leader, we have no leader yet.
Hides in ambuscade as his clowns misuse words like “The Presidency”
incompetence enmeshed the already besmirched reputation
as gutter tongues ranked us collectively as “hole”
incompetence robs a thousand destinies,
sixty years after the dark days, we grope in darkness
"waiting for “godot”
promising a false future that never comes,
two times incompetence, twice fooled.
Incompetence in Africa's largest hub.
Incompetence makes a weakling of our strength
