Yet Another Nigerian Rant

Put a paper in the ballot box, I cast my vote

‘Our politicians are maggots’ was what I wrote

The people hustle for their daily bread

We all watched when the north bled

Biafra is something you probably don’t know

From boys to soldiers was the way to go

I’m tired of all the ‘zoning’ and the nonsense

Sometimes it feels like it’s just few that are conscious

I’m of an undying consensus

We probably didn’t count 30% in the last census

Oil is money, money brings power, and power brings fame

So you hear less of the achievement and more of the name

The problem is part politics but mostly ignorance
