Year 2020 - Poem by Babatunde Aremu

They are like star gazers
Rolling the crystal balls
To decipher the future
Whether the seed will grow or not
They claimed to have seen clearly
Year 2020, Nigeria will ascend
As part of top 20 world economy
Only the simpletons concurred

We know their 2020 is infinite
Their 2020-20 is a mirage
We don't need their star gazers
We can no longer be deceived
We know they are lying
We know their gimmicks
2020-20 is just on their lips
2020-20 is farce
Its just another hulabaloo

    If only we had a crystal ball to look into the future we might be scared of what we see. Nice poem Babatunde. (Report) Reply
