SUMMARY OF THE PROBLEMS IN NIGERIA AND THE RESILIENCE OF CITIZENS (GREEN AND WHITE THOUGHTS )
When mother AFRICA lamented through the mind of Nigeria on
how bad things had gone in this country.
Light breath, that which synthesizes our thoughts here,
I thought about, again and again and again till watery still,
Thereby, permitting my thoughts to flow omnidirectionally, with this,
My never thought crawled into my brain, but was confused amidst
My whale of thought. Penultimatly, those thoughts
Rose as a lengthy loop to the top of my thought chain.
Neatly dressed in our coat of arm is breathtaking sorrow,
Ridding that know stallion in the coat of harm are scrawny ideas – seamy I must confess.
Whinnying woes, red and black, gaiting plagues, red and black, and drowning
Lives in the ocean of azure calamity.
Our neighbouring sons of father kofi, back to inhale the white vapours of Lake Volta.
Please mother Ghana, forgive us for 1983’s “Ghana must go”.
Even though I was an aspiring foetus then.
Sinuous pates, spreading poverty like dusts in the wilderness of cyclones.
Sadly, some of these riders live in brains akin to that of a kind misanthropist.
This giant in the moon, now a worm in the blinds of abyss,
Or just a paper tiger.
The flock of our foremothers, having shepherds with
Rods of pretty green vipers, tendering them to
The land of lions, brucellosis and dingoes.
Leading some to Hades and others for gibbet show
Tormenting “villains” with horrors
Of brimstone for breathing as inhabitants,
But never to die even in the valley of Hinnom.
