Nigeria's Call Obey - Poem by micheal udenyi

From within she called out my name
the more she screamed, it seemed she sunk
no one, not even me to pull her up
she called on, but I was too deaf t o hear

In pain and agony she called on, one hand up
wishing her voice any one could hear
but Oh! the weeping, the wailing, the the drowning groans
the tears that gushed frely, with no soul to comfort

she winced for the pain of a malfunctioning heart that seldom beats
help! help! ! help meeeeeeeee! ! ! ! the voice, the bleeding heart
amidst the fractious fracas I felt perturbed
a nation so rich could also cry?

Nigeria, my nation, my hope, my home
dost thou need cry thus, ere I here?
here am I, Nigeria's call to obey
to fight to the finish the war of our fathers

Cry no more, for he that thou callest have heard
I am on my heels your errand to run
for ther's yet a breed of honest blood alive
willing to conquer our battles for us
