I Have A New President - Poem by Tony Adah

I have a new president
For the next four years
He's an emperor tall as the sky
With the mien of a jester
And the heart of a lion
In all, the change agenda is taller
Than the president.
He often wears smiles on his lips
But seldom in his heart.
He promised change
And everything to make every citizen good
Change, change, change
Yet the tall mound of amala
And miles of drawing ewedo
Are far away from the citizens' dinner table
He promised
Work or no work
There'll be pay cheques for everyone
One thing taking his attention
Is the dark hills built by' kwaroption'
And his bulldozers work dawn to dusk
In the reverse of the curfew he enacted
In his first coming.
Pull the dark hills down
Level them
Especially if the opponents built them
The dark hills are so tall
It will take four years to demolish
And if this will be his only duty
Then I have a new president.
