Indices Of A Loon

GOODLUCK Gutless muffled monarch wooed millions to the poll, Oozing pathetic speech of poverty (I once had no shoes) On congruent grounds we let him, though we hated his coterie. Disappointed, we wail, waiting substitute to end the reign of quack Lacklustre, insipid and a pervading naivety. Unvaried captain rocks this boat, gagged by plunderers. Circles of death, twinge, miseries the reign of a drab creek king Kleptocracy adorning imposition, EBELE Embezzlers on rampage, holes bequeathed for pillaging. Bandits as conniving ministers besmirched obtuse scamp Egregious craven shrieked at the sound of war “I am not a lion”. Laggard lumper loon left fanatical murderers at our doorsteps Encumbrances from delinquent clan divide the love for mother land DAME Damp squib's duchess & indecent tongue, devoid of restraint Audacious domestic appendage ferrying funds Merriment and intrigue feigned as obligations, Edgy. encumbrance though ceaselessness forms their amity. PATIENCE Punk pretending and purloining to private vaults. Adventurous nerve for futile globe -trot. Twitchy at state's affairs though never elected. Intoxicated by serendipity, shaming all with activity. Euphemistic drama, Scrappy curiosity with comedy. National dilemma by decorated buffoons. Crude verbiages to amuse eggheads “my Fellow widows” Encomium of approval turned sour “Power” the pipe for thieves. JONATHAN Jokers jostled in enthusiasm to rule, (politicking ) Onslaught from 'Boko-Haram' drove sleep from wearied countrymen Numbed as "hoipolloi echoed NO to mistimed removal, Alas, the fraud, rapscallion looting Criminals Lords over us Tyranny cloaked garbs, creek professor without a thesis. Higgledy-piggledy a travesty called democracy. Amidst the rubble of a crumbling amalgam, Nigerian Lords watched the drama secured, while we die helpless
