As I gripped my pen to write
Tears trickled down my cheeks in delight
There is a man with a conscience
As systematic as science
His voice rang clearly as the sound of a gong
And his lyrics as soft as love song
The strive began twelve-years ago
Along an irresistible tempest blow
Stumbled but never fell flat
To the scary screeching of the bat
Crawling through the long and dark tunnel
And hope was his only gel
When tears rolled down his steep face
It flowed to God's corridor and begot grace
Suddenly light glistened at the tunnel end
And happiness thickened and refused to bend
Contorted twists hurriedly ran
And gentle breeze was felt from the fan
I saw the dove coo and the falcons chant
Even naked democracy wore a green pant
Then minds ran faster than Hussein Bolt
Without intimidation of the thunderbolt
Vibration of victory felt in the earth crust
Without a sinister of any outburst
This is no less an important water shed
So no more tears to shed
There is a great lesson to be learnt here
Ears open and hear me everywhere
Never toy with the immutable and supreme being
That's what I told adherents of dry gin

This poem is dedicated to General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd.) Who won the Nigerian presidential election few days ago.This poem shows his strive,victory,relief, and lessons.
