The Last Day of the Month that Birth ‘One Week’
The last day of the month that birth one week
Seven days now making One weak
Several regurgitated and some became sick
Like a 99 year-old man’s rick.

parading again for Nigeria
in the fantasy of Algeria.
The drills in four (4) platoons
a weak spoon just like every other platoon
A military Personnel became our leader in the Platoon.

Who stood by us like Ford

Taboos were enumerated by the Eze of the clan who doubled as the cultural custodian and Native-Accord.
Have you read The NYSC Chronology from the Literary Shrine (Day 5)?
Three different lectures
Were registered like ventures
We sat to look like Vultures
All mute and none could mention.
Wailing from NYSC Orientation Camp (IMO State).
