Song of Revolution

Would those who know how to pray, pray
And those who can’t, wish
For we are getting to a stage
Where history will be re written
And all hell let loose.

Though no one ever pray for this
But wishful thinking is never enough.
How could the oppressor of people
Think the people will forever believe
Their propaganda of peace with poverty?

Let it be sang in the nooks and crannies
Of the geographical entity called Nigeria
That the poor will no longer have none it
That never are we going to be deceived again
By their crap of unity and suffering.

There can’t be peace without justice
Justice, my people, that will reach everywhere
Those who put our money away in unlit safe
Shall rot away in unlit prison cell
For offense and punishment must be proportional.

So let those who know how to pray, pray
And those who can’t, wish
For we cannot because of peace
Remain forever in abject poverty.
