A nation without a leader,
Is a nation who has a monster like you as one.
You are like a monument that represent our regrets and pains.
A statue that makes us wish you could stay a little bit more on earth.
Trump thinks you are heartless, Kanu claimed you are lifeless
I used to think only the living can be heartless but you showed up(I was wrong).
The only thing that is present is your constant absence.
Absent yet with the capacity to kill (like the devil).
Yes, we can’t deny the echoes of your deafening silence.
What a deadly ancient silence, oozing from the darkest part of hell!
Yeah, you are a deadly and restless ghost.
Constantly looking for the harmless youths to devour.
Your claws are drenched with the best of our bloods.
You look like death, you smell like death but they branded you as a precious Angel.
They are right… A tall calm angel of death!
A blood-sucking heartless monster .
Sadly, you only drink the blood of your brightest youths.
Maybe the price we pay for allowing a deadly wolf lead the harmless sheep(I am pretending as if our votes count).
We expected fatherhood from a beast who sees us as just preys. Our bad!
We asked for bread but you gave us stones
And instead of fish, you brought us Scorpions
We wanted to hear from you as a father
You sent us bullets and teargas through your delivery slaves…Terrorist in military uniforms
You upgraded robbers and called them SARS
You even instructed them to kill only youth with bright futures
You brought terrorist from sambisa forest and licensed them to kill peaceful protesters
You dished out more dreadful venom and you called it a speech
You have sold our future to distant strangers
You are ruining our present as you did to our parent’s esteem.
You temporarily wear your human face when push comes to shove .
You run to us when you need our support and votes (our votes don’t still count maybe you do it for the gram.lol).
You sing, dance and speak as humans do.
You learnt the act of being temporarily human so well(I wish you learn leadership with such passion).
You speak of us only as numerical values .
You mocked us at will and still call us lazy in the potential nation of our refuge.
Mr Integrity that spares the life of the snake that swallowed 36 million and killed the harmless youths instead .
You paid $600000 for a logo of an airline that never left the ground
Shame on you old viper of Sahel!
We are not just Nigerian youths, we are survivors.
Our garments are drenched with the tears our eyes can no longer carry.
You have taken away all we had but you can’t take away our voices.
We are the scorching sun we can’t easily be put off.
We live where your deadly bullets can’t reach.
We will attack from a location where your soldier can’t near.
We won’t stop screaming via these wilting fingers. (Yes, we won’t )
Like a legion, we don’t give up, we don’t sleep and our phones don’t go off.
These monsters you made only feed on their creators
You will pay for every single soul even before you rot in hell.
… Mic dropped .
Dedicate To My friend Alex Tolani .M and everyone who put their lives on the line during the ongoing #EndSARS protest. You are all my heroes and your labours shall not be in vein.
