Negative Orientations They were given at home [The NYSC Chronology from the Literary Shrine (Day 8 & 9) ]
No essay today,
Just straightforward lines.
The Camp is no longer as exciting as before.
Girls are wrongfully oriented from homes
to see every boy/guy that approaches them as a husband material.
Boys have been deceived to see every girl/woman as a missing rib that needed to be replaced with immediate effect.
What a sorry state of the Mind?
The ‘Man O War’ drilling(s) has been scheduled for one Platoon after another.
Matches (Football/Volley Ball) has been intensified by each group.
No one wants to be a loser
They are all up and doing to the best of their abilities.
Met EGUONO and OMOLADE the very 9th day in Camp.
The morning meditations that precede the hoisting of the Nigeria Flag at 6.00a.m is an evergreen memory daily.
”Nigeria is going down”
The slogan by many of us at 6.00pm
when the Nigeria Flag is being brought down by the Biggle man
The biggleman with a Military officer
standing so straight like an electric pole
with the help of another Soldier gently waggling down the Flag
while others are standing erect like Julius Berger Poles.
The worthless camp food continues
Else, Mami Market will
crest a hole in your pocket.
Location: IMO state NYSC Orientation Camp.
