Lies and damned roaches;
Imo State got infested.
How did we get here?
That's the view of St Mary's Tower,
From my house,
At number 1 Abel Agiriga Street, Okigwe;
A tower erected by the late Most Reverend Doctor Anthony Ilonu;
Once upon a time in a certain land so distant, and yet so near; a certain group of mighty men banded together and came to the people, and swore a certain type of oath to them.
They swore to them: "We will keep digging for oil. We will keep digging until we find oil."
Remember that subliminal picture:
Officer Derek Chauvin
Kneeling on poor George Floyd's neck,
Strangulating the life out of him?
When I emerge from the darkness of night,
And sing to life:
'Welcome, little Miss Sunshine'.
