It’s not about putting on a green top
Coupled with a white tie.
Then, a pair of trouser or skirt with green and white strip
And a shinning white shoe with green lace.
Green, beautiful colour thou art
The trees wave joyfully in fertility.
Green for fertility, fertility for green.
To put on green, then you must be fertile.
It’s not about the wears
A beautiful green and white hat will fit thy head this day.
But is (y)our live(s) fertile?
Holy white, pure white
Magnificent sparkling white
Symbol of Godliness
Purity to its fullness.
White, Science say reflexes light
It’s no joke to maintain white
Must have read a piece of mine “White Rag”
It’s an uneasy task like a course on a zig-zig.
So, let’s try hard
And live green & white lives
Not just for this day
But from this day.
(As for me, I chose to live Green and White
Than wear it.
Mind you, I love my Country
I no go lie)
HAPPY INDEPENDENT NAIJA!!!
