London 2012 - Poem by Naseeru Taneemu Annuree

I thought for my country I am going to write an epic
To welcome our heroes back from olympic
Now that the social dinner is over
The heroes brought back home no leftover
We send there to rise our fine flag of honours
But, for seconds, minutes and hours
For days, nights and more than two weeks
We can't even smell what we seeks
Inspite of flood of cash meant for their tickets
They ended there as mere crickets
Chirping loudly before the champions
Who bites them more painfully than scorpions
This forced us in a state of pure hysteria
Ashamed of our being from Nigeria
On inferile field we placed on so much our hope
And swinged our athletes on an old rope
And they successfully won all our consternations
As they were forced to salute the flags of other nations
Even the Jamaican proved themselves in the games
On a lightning speed they ran and catched their golden fames
The Americans stood first on the golden bench
Sending our basketball men to an early blench
Okagbare, the only lady millions placed on so much their burdens
Failed woefully to pick even one golden fruit for them from the gardens
They sent here there to fight for them unprepared
Ignorantly, they thought she is going to be spared
But, she is knocked deeply down to the final lost
The Team GB worked tirelessly to get the third post
Even the chinese men were not asbconded
As they brilliantly placed themselves seconded
There we fruitlessly spent our hard earned money
And we only got bitterness in place of honey
So, I am here passionately to praise our government
For shamelessly appointing the disappointment........
