Nigeria Decides

Abnormalities have worn an attire of normalcy,

Priorities have capsized.

The nation, in her folly has chosen,

Fury over concord,

Aristocracy over democracy, through power recycle,

And cattle ranches over citadels of knowledge.

The supposed future,

Has been transmuted into a power pitch.

The new trend is,

Cascading billion bucks,

On some four-legged creatures.

These same beasts that had trampled

On our green pastures.

Plausibly, the nation's future resides beneath their hoofs.

And their horns uphold,

The people's unity.

The polity master has willed wisely,

Choosing sawdust over gold dust.

Now, it is up to us to decide,

Whether or not we deserve,

A government for the people,

Or a government for the fauna.
