When the president provoke the youth

when the President provoke the youth
my president said the youths
are lazy 
my president said we the youth 
just sit around waiting for 
of wish I never had not even 
for once 
my president said we are 
not educated
I wonder whose fault 
was that 
this man has provoked
the country 
our President has 
abused our dignity 
what a man 

when the president provoke the youth
am 35 years of age 
I struggled I work hard 
I remember sleeping 
just 4hours per day 
for a long years 
just to make sure that 
my needs are at my feet 
with out the help of my 
with out the care of 
my state we the 
youth of Nigeria 
have been surviving
we are not use to benefit
we don't know what it means 
I have traveled around the 
world all by my effort
is a shame that an old 
man like my president 
can lie publicly to the world 
what a shame

when the president provoke the youth
is too bad in Nigeria 
since the occupation of 
my president 
we have never enjoyed 
any form of progress
we have been in Cry's 
nothing is working
despite the huge resources
we are still starving
while our president 
keep touring around 
the world 
I wonder if he see other
countries development
cos if he is deaf 
he is not blind as of now
yet he is blind deaf 
ignorant of our needs 
and finally the blame 
is ours 
what a shame

when the president provoke the youth
some one tell this tall slim man 
not to touch the lions tail
how could he weak the sleeping lions
with such a lie
how could he shake the strength
of his country to nothing 
how could he devalue his people
in front of the whole world
I wish he could have said the truth
cos if not he has lied 
lied against his people
lied against the very people 
who put him to power 
lied against the entire country 
lied against my future
some one please tell the 
president to retire 
is obvious he is warn out 
what a shame
