The giant of Africa

Torrents of thoughts torment me Floodgate of distractions rack my soul Avalanche of delusions Decapitate my mental faculty As I muse over the degeneration That has dogged my beloved country She manifests every aspect Of a failed state The giant of Africa has lost control Of her Territory to terrorists Bandits have re-colonized my fatherland Kidnappers strike terror into the hearts Of weary and hapless Nigerians While her economy continues to Stumble and wobble with ignominy In the hands of oil thieves The ancient perpetrators of rape Against our father land Are shamelessly like vultures Gathering and flying over The carcass of the comatose nation To gang-rape her to death Arise fellow Nigerians and stand firm Let us take our country back From chaos to path of sanity

I can't begin to imagine the grief and anger you must feel at the rapacity that has wounded your country. You have told it well. Oh, that there were ears as capable of listening! More than that, capable of doing! Elizabeth

Thank you so much Elizabeth McCann for your morale- boosting and encouraging comment on my poem. It feels good to know that someone, somewhere, shares and feels what my compatriots go through on a daily basis. Help is on the way as divine intervention is about to change the political narrative in my country come 2023. Remain blessed and have a wonderful day!
