[Poem] Tears Like A River (Niger Delta)

Aches of neglects,

Punctured into our extinction.

Soured river flowing to our destinations.

We lived in the water,

drowned into spillages.

Call us militants,

Let’s counts dying infants;

in a land where farming is not relevant.


Why call us kidnappers?

When you take our oils in tankers;

without good roads to replace.

We are dying gradually, for instance;


Our mothers cannot boast of good healthcare.

Mother is a sun.

She rises but can’t drink good existences.

Cannot brush her teeth with nature;


Because the mosquitoes had sucked her ‘Oloibiri‘ dry as dead dingo’s donger.

Please don’t ask about Papa?

He is a bullet

in Ojukwu’s gun.

The war had began

let’s forget one Nigeria.
