Stillbirth

It was a glorious land till the white men came. 
Once arrogated, her glory stole.
Left desolated, her ego bruised. 
Without her consent, the Master named. 

Fictitious unity, Albion sold 
While her tamed people, Lugard conned.
Hollow freedom, Robertson gave 
“A bright new dawn!” her people told.

But true manumission ne’er ensued. 
Omnishambles! Failure galore.
Her glory swapped with one she ne’er mould. 
A failing state, ought to ne’er formed.

Ẹẹ́rìndílógún: An ode to the 16th President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria

The sixteenth rooster 

Seemed spent, fragile and weak.

His mysterious past

He warned, need not seek.

 

We were told he is a being 

All should feared.

If only we knew,

We wouldn't have dared.

 

He is as bad 

As the worst of them all.

Yet, his sapience eclipsed the best 

His foes would dare call.

 

When he crows, chills are sent down 

His adversaries' spines.

In their camps lie

His ever loyal spies.

 

With guile, the impossible he achieved

Defying odds with ease.

Just as feared,

The throne is now his.
