SUBTLE ECHOES

Bleeding ink blinds rulers
Skilled beggars beg
Chess game in the midst
Of blind spectators!
Oh! Heaven comedown
And visit our motherland

Shattered destinies
Kidnapped dreams
Talented ones now suffer
From unemployment disease
Leaders now caress us with lies

Murdered Goals
Corrupted minds
Slaughtered Future
Bombs sound is now our music
And unripe death news
Now the anthem

All ye tyrants
I challenge you with my ink
Don’t kill my faith
I know this fight is my fate

I call unto Adabi and Esan
To whip you with the cane of justice
May Eledumare wipe away our sins
And silence the waving echoes
