They Pretend To Lead Us

They pretend to lead us –
Self-sent messiahs, con geniuses
Milking the cow, starving the calves,
Blowing up the people
For the love of the people?
"Arise O’ compatriots..."
A call to obey if you are still in
Erstwhile dreams!
O’ mother Nigeria, raped by her own!

They pretend to lead us –
A barrel of laughs for the rich and famous
The poor look to Mohamed and Jesus
Praying, struggling
To tell a glance from a scowl
A dance from a prowl
