Nigerians have learnt to cope with sufferings.
They trivialise important matters and coin ingenious jokes.
Jokes that make you crack up…….into ecstasy
Like the drug, you are oblivious of your surroundings
You are so high, I have been informed. Life matters no more to you.
You are living in the moment of high
Forgetting, as you bask in the euphoria of joy
that, it is a simile
it will disappear leaving you with a mirage that ‘all is well’
But it was never well in the first place
‘It is well’, a cacophony of religious sentiments applied
interchangeably by all and sundry
Sai Baba, otherwise known as Buhari was heralded as the saviour
of the common man on the street
‘it is well’
Nigerians donated their last kobo
Donated their last sweat
like the octogenarian who gave up her life’s savings
I coughed up some kobo as well
to be part of history and to be able to bring him to account
if all goes awry
it has, now
and all, on social media who supported and argued for Sai Baba
are nowhere to be found
every one of them has gone on vacation
for 2020 elections
Is Buhari in Trouble?
or is it the Economy that is troubled?
Ministers are quiet
Senators and House of Reps are fighting EFCC
EFCC is the busiest
yet no single indictment
Even Lai Muhammed is quiet
that tells you something is amiss.
All Nigerians expect is HOPE!
Buhari gave plenty outside office
but hasn’t been able to offer any in office.
Nigerians are suffering
Good People, Good Nation
But I have been told off
and made to understand that
Nigerians will survive
They have always survived.
