Mother Nigeria Weeps - Poem by micheal john

O! Who is this? !
Who is this creature,
peeping through my joy,
interrupting my happiness?
Who is this creature, crawling my surrounding?

What is this that feeds upon the flesh of my children,
And drink from the blood of my offsprings? !

Who is this that's darkening my image,
Treading upon my dignity? !
How have my innocent children wrong you?

Upon whose invitation do you resident my camp? !
Who invited you to swim in the blood of children? !

Course be to you this day,
For you're but unwanted guest!
Enough to your damage.
Leave me and my children alone!
