Gov In Ment (Government) - Poem by Gbolagade Taiwo

Before the advent of your false truth
We could manage our lives
We could live like one body
One tray is our plate of food
We share everything we have with no regret
You came to our land
You asked for our hand
For you to rule over us
We trusted you with our lives
We gave you all we have
You promised to serve us
We turn out to be your slaves
You promised to protect us
We turn out to be your watchdog
We look after you and your family
You put us in room that has no reflection of light
When we refuse to do what you want
The lords are becoming the serf
Our pockets are beginning to cry
While we see you flying in the sky
We are arranging our bamboo tree to make a house
Now we regret trusting you with our lives
A time will come
When tears will be no where to be found in your eyes
Blood will vacate itself from your veins
We will pour down on you as it rains.
