The plan was to post something light and heartfelt today. I worked on it again last night with a picture to compliment. That was the plan. But I guess plans never get the superiority when there are more pending and heart breaking issues at hand.
I woke up this morning and just like last week; there were reports of bombings in the Northern part of Nigeria. I am Nigerian, and so there was no way I could ignore that. I responded to a tweet my cousin wrote about it. I felt his pain… and I imagined how the people who were directly affected would feel.
I love Nigeria, always have, and always will. I hate the government we are left with time and time again. Empty promises, lies and downright brutes they all have been, and continue to be.
They say the opposite of love is not hate but rather indifference, again I say I love Nigeria, I hate our government, but I refuse to be indifferent about the situation my beloved Nigerians find themselves. They really hoped this time there would be a change, except it’s gone from bad to worse in less time under the current regime. A civilian bully is what this current administration is.
They sit down in their bullet proof cars, and staggering mansions, while the people who elected them are being slaughtered into limbs and heads on the streets. We have become puns in the hands of these animals masquerading as leaders.
It is time we spoke out about their raging lunacy and downright wickedness. It is time we arise in defend of Nigeria. It is time we attack and defend. (Please bear with my rants and long post this morning, my heart simply hurts for a country I love)
Words found me this morning and responded to my hurting heart, and so I wrote this-
We have no weapons of mass destruction
We carry no guns or firearms
We have no bombs or explosive devices
We are not in the least bit skilled in our aim to attack
Still we will attack
Attack and defend for our nation
Attack and defend for our children
Attack and defend for their future
No longer will we sit silent
While sadistic evil rules and triumphs
No longer will we be oppressed by our so- called “leaders”
No longer will we let injustice prevail
We will strip them bare and naked
Shame them publicly and overseas
We will call attention to their long time greed
And continued indifference laced with madness
We will shame and expose them for what they really are
We will take back our country and protect our land
We will fight for our lives and that of our children
We will arise united as compatriots for our beloved
And even though we have no weapons of mass destruction
We will attack with our pen
Our words and
The cries of our heart
We will attack with all we have
And after our attack
We will defend with our hearts
Our words and
A generation has risen
A generation has come
A generation that will attack
A generation that will defend
We will attack and defend
