What They Saw

I can see it, I can visualise it, yes, I can picture it,
They saw it all, and the said it, and they fought it,
In that cool and most sort after place, that is at the end of the world,
I imaging the warlord, Ezeigbo, Gburugburu, ikemba, the Oduma of the universe, laughing at the turn of things in this country he selflessly fought for,

I can visualise Chukwuemek Odumegwu Ojukwu, the way he is laughing at the situation of things in Nigeria, what he fought for that T.Y Danjuma, Yakubu Gowon, Obasanjo, Mortalar Mohammed; antagonized in the early days! I see from where I stand, the laugh in the heart of the Bale - Wole Soyinka, he saw it too, he stepped in to broker and he was betray and....

I can picture Fela Kuti, Chinua Achebe, and Christopher Okigbo, they are all laughing at the going of things in Nigerian

When they saw, and said, and fought, they were fought against and laughed at, but now, all that could have been averted, had their voice been listened to.
