A Click, I Blink
A Shutter, A Bulb
A Flurry of motion
A Mic, A Podium
I Look, I See, I Smile.
Row upon endless row
A Sea of heads
What to say!
Words form; A smile achieved
Riotous applause herald the Plaque.
Please repeat after me:
To solemnly discharge my duties…
As the first Female President Of the Federal Republic of Nigeria…
I Swear, An Applause, I Smile.
A Nudge, I Blink, A soft voice:
“Baby, get up
Let’s go over your multiplication tables again.”
Ha! The dreams of a little girl!
