The Nigeria We Deserve 4 - Poem by john chizoba vincent


Smelling streets is not what we all deserve
We deserve a tomorrowland, a future hope
Where the black nakedness of the children is gone
Thunder ceased to insert fears in us
We deserve a better Nigeria, a fascinating home
Where morals are the hospitality of our souls

We deserve a spirited masses with one heart
Not a division of heart which welcomes evil
The street that welcomes the right of the masses
We deserve masses who depend not on the
Governement for employment, shelter, food and clothes, we need masses that will be men of their

We deserve a welcoming home for the theatre
The entertaining home of the worldpower
We deserve a country where the custome and tradition abide forever, although the western culture is good but it had made us to abandon the spirit of
Our old tradition that never allow women to go naked
In the street nor allow the men to plait their hair.
This is not what we deserve in our country

Is it our fate to die one after the other through Booku
My eyes has seen many perished with no course
The streets crowded with blood of the innocents
Yet we seems not to see any solution to that
We deserve a better country, we deserve good Nigeria,
We don't deserve a country where people wash their
Hands with blood
