On the run

Nigerians are on the run Refugees in search of Asylum No more sweetness in their fatherland Their dreams have crumbled The giant of Africa is in shambles With hope of her youth buried under the rubbles of Man made insurgency Banditry and insane killings Evil holds sway everywhere While goodness scamper to safety Succor for the needy Has been looted by the greedy Kidnapping has been legalized As perpetrators haggle ransom With constituted authorities Like in the open market While security forces stand aloof Awaiting their share of the pie Armaggeddon is surely here
