The Whistle - Poem by SylvaOnyema Uba

Blow! blow! !
The whistle blow

Blow open
The flaming forest
Of coloured papers

Blow! blow! !
The whistle blow

Blow open
The sleeping skeletons
Of foreign papers

Blow! Blow! !
The whistle blow

Blow open
The block or flat
Of Osborne

Blow! blow! !
The whistle blow

Blow open
The hidden bags
Of swallowed currencies

Green White Green
I hail theeeee- - oooooh! ! !

    I love the message expressed in these melodiously written verses.
    Whistle blowers' protection, one of the best thing any government can do.
