Nineteen Sunday Trophy - Poem by Patricia Osamor

19 years ago we held it in our hands so handy

19 years after it so eluded the country

19th February on a Church day

A man with the glorious name Sunday

Who knows how to score goals on Worship day

19 superlative number written on his Jersey

Scored the goal to give us the elusive 19 years old trophy

Great game, Great team, Great spirit and great Country.





Some say to show our appreciation let give them N19billion

Some suggest sending 19 Senators to present the money with bullion

Some say it will cost over 19 million to get the molar to the baron(s)





Whatever we suggest or desire to give to the herons

Make the number 19 significant in the heroic commemorations

Presentations would be noteworthy on a Sunday

19 years after we flourish in a joy, Nigerian so worthy


Poet's Notes about The Poem

For nineteen years the CAF Nations cup eluded my country Nigeria, on the last Sunday the National football team won the cup for the third time after nineteen years.
