Tell them our nation’s stronghold
Is no longer fit and strong
To hold her prestigious prestige
For her intensive integrity has fallen
And her pride is been used for a ride
Tell them our leaders are not leading
But they’re only ruling as weak rulers
Who only care for their bellies
And not what we desire as lilies
Even our graduates sob
Because they’ve no job

And our universities are now vast cities of
cultisms
Tell them our security sags and it pant is blinks
At night we now sleep and wink
Night is now the job of home breakers
Who break and take what is given to us by our
maker
Tell them our educational back ground is
downtrodden
Because its back has been placed on the ground
Our students now sit with rodents
Their seats are now meats for termites to feast
Tell them the physiognomy of our parents are
chitinous
They’ve nothing to offer but sorrowful tears and
bitter bloods

They’ve been deprived their pensions
And placed under tensions
As their joy are in detentions
Tell them we are tired of the boom boom sounds
that raped our minds
And separated us when we abound
For our destinies have been traumatically
truncated
And our smiles now pass through excruciating
pains in a million miles
Tell them that we need silence
Doesn’t mean we should be silenced
For we’ve been eliminated for our right
Our justice now hide itself in just-hiss
Our peace is torned into pieces
And the truth we need has lost its root indeed
Tell them that we need
Our surroundings to be serene
Doesn’t mean we need the sound of a siren
For our hearts bleed each time couples are been
carried away as corpses
Let God listen to my cry and try to give a pry
before my people dry
Tell them our neighbours are now mosquitoes
Who dine and wine on our bloods that are fine
We pay for electric light but we are using
sunlight
Power failure is now a powerful failure
Our economy has become a comic to mimic and
remix
So let them give us what we need not what they
hid
