I AM NIGERIA

I am Nigeria
I am that brackish water that erodes the delta

I am Nigeria
I am that green and white flag that sways fervently in ill-winds

I am Nigeria
I am that lustrous rock that has lost its hardness and mica

I am Nigeria
I am that eagle that has lost the might of its beak and claws

I am Nigeria
I am that teardrop on the chins of my daughters

I am Nigeria
I am that mildew that wallows in the dreary thorns

I am Nigeria
I am that night that has got its stars bashed

I am Nigeria
I am that sun that has lost its shine and pedestal

I am Nigeria
