5 Limericks For Nigeria

23 Oct

blank map

Again they stood in awe
What conclusion to draw?
Faced with another ‘-gate’
Too painful to relate
Some were forced to guffaw

Since the oil boom
We have been in gloom
This blessing of ours
Like sweet soup that sours
Leaves us now faced with doom

One scandal to another we crawl
Like a Southern American drawl
From Salisu to Farouk
We seem to breed crooks
This system we need to haul

So what are we to do?
Are you not tired too?
Should we the country divide?
Let each take a side?
our nationhood review?

Will 2015 bring hope
A government that’s dope
That will help the poor
We cant say for sure
Verily we cant get a pope

    There were jesters from a place
    that cavorted in disgrace,
    triumphing in feigned hysteria
    in a land called Nigeria
    where false claims disguise true face
