My pledge to Nigeria

27 October 2015, 15:18 Adigun Temitope Idealism

From between heaven and earth stand a perilous place

Where poverty kicked us on face

Tears stand as our drinks

Where hunger eat up our meals

Our pain is a poisonous laughter

Where sadness becomes our daily activities

Where hardship becomes our ambition

And sorrow our career

Still, we need to pledge to Nigeria

Blood, bone and oil,

Are the pedestal of earth killing is a lifestyle

And murder a hobby

Where humiliation becomes our take home

And misfortune our store-house

Where graduate works by the road-side

Where poverty is titillating and titivating before the mirror of our land

Yet we need to pledge to Nigeria

Pledge to Nigeria

Even when the birds refuses to sing,

When moon dims its light,

When our days turn into nights

When sun fails to shine

And flowers refuse to bloom

When life fails to give reasons

When dreams refuse to forgive

When the weep inside birth the smile outside

When tears wash hope from our sight Nigeria must still be pledge to

I pledge to Nigeria

Not to be one if the ambassadors that sing the National Anthem with a teleprompter smiling at them in a shameful tears

I pledge not to be a naked masquerade dancing at the village square

I pledge to steal government money for the poor when I become the President

I pledge to be loyal and not betrayal

I pledge to fight off vices and calamities with my pen

If democracy must to end I pledge to go crazy to stop it to the end

If civilization was to make us stupid I pledge to swim in stupidity not to be civilised

I pledge, I pledge
