Trouble Within - Poem by Edmond Nsheuko

Greed and selfishness,
Trademark of a nation
Misery and hopelessness,
burden of its people

Yesterday oppressed,
Today’s oppressors

Who shall we blame,
If no our own self?
Who shall we blame,
If not our own people?

Paradigm of failure,
Archetype of frustration
Cited as example
Of everything gone wrong

No value,
No respect

Who shall we blame,
If not our own self?
Who shall we blame,
If not our own people?
