Watch the televisions and see the promos
Switch on the radios and listen to the jingoes
You will get them on the internet
Check out their handbills
The posters and the billboards
Now they are getting on our mobiles
With sweet tantalizing verses and phrases
They want my vote!
Your votes! !
Our votes! ! !
Check out their attires
Some of them are finer than models
They take the extremes
They want the seats by all costs
They give out the weapons for war
We need no war!
All we need is peace
Whether the change or the transformation
The man on the street wants a good life
So, when they pay you to take arms
Tell them we want to vote; not fight
(THIS IS DEDICATED TO THE FORTHCOMING ELECTIONS IN NIGERIA)
