Nigeria - Poem by Idris Abayomi Alade

A nation that satisfies all criteria
Blessed with beautiful land area
Rich in minerals
With peaceful and famous rivers
Population so great
With people so cultural
Her language as countless as the stars.

A country that I know
Before host of others enter my head
Like a loving mother
Nigeria taught me all that I know
Her morals are ageless
Her schools are the best
Her land so fertile to support all ideas
My good head can conceive.

I love Nigeria
The way a baby loves her mother
But I hate her leaders
They are bad drivers that crash the vehicle
So shortsighted that they cannot see beyond their noses
There unscrupulous ways brew hatred in me
They are the unworthy children
Bad heirs that destroyed the labours of their fathers
Who are the venerated heroes in our history.
