Spread the love

Singing the songs of our hero’s past.
Servicing the gods of blood and might.
Various wars we fought with guns and hand.
Yet we still say we are One.

Cultivating the hatred in our Hearts.
Placing Buffons to lead us, are we still blind?
Various Slogans come and Passed.
Yet we still say “One Love”.

Taking our country from the Colony,
soldiers took over it from us.
Various Reforms they did and gone,
yet we are still placed a terrorist World.

1999 Proved the beginning of the Beginning,
It was the end of the Beginning.
It all went from good to bad.
Until we clocked 50.

In our 50’s it all declined,
our Economy Shaking in our very own hands,
are we saying we need the white people to help us handle it?
or was it not us, blessed with all these natural resources?

In our 50’s we act like little children,
Political blame games of men who are supposed to be close to their graves.
The saying; “We are the leaders of tommrow”, doesn’t apply to us.
Tommrow died when we placed our country to the dead.

Fusing Traditions into laws.
Operating in a capitalist democracy.
Free at last we said 60 years ago.
Are we heading the right way? You may ask.

Alas! Happy birthday to You Nigeria,
Your mothers endured pains when they gave birth to you.
Pain is nothing new because we refuse to depart from it.
We better Summon the dead heroes to make us alive.
