SAFE FLIGHT, NIGERIA! (POEM)
I first posted this poem on Facebook in 2015, during the madness, including fisticuffs on the floor of the National Assembly, that followed the assumption of power in Nigeria by the All Progressives Congress (APC) on May 29, 2015. Since then, we’ve not had much cause for cheer. But dare we give up?
As for me, I will never cease praying for Nigeria that she may come into her own as a country that the citizens can be proud of.May Nigeria overcome her challenges & become a country to be proud of in Jesus' name. Click To Tweet
SAFE FLIGHT, NIGERIA!
Nigeria was flying through choppy weather
When APC came to power
Now she’s operating on auto pilot
While the crew brawls over the meat pot
The storm is unrelenting
The turbulence alone is jarring
But the crew’s commotion may the cabin puncture
Causing a crash from loss of air pressure
Some passengers are excusing the captain
Others say he’s acting like an intern
But I pray clearer skies and proper manning
of the deck
I pray calmness, safety, no more crew members
