INDEPENDENCE: Mind Blowing Poem About Nigeria


OPPROBRIUM; by Ahaneku .N. Portable

It’s our INDEPENDENCE day!

Though dependently independent we lay
Since 1960 we haven’t seen the sun’s ray
And the poor haven’t their say
But the rich have doubled their pay

Today we’ve emblazoned Nigeria on our streets,
On our flags, our clothes, our hats
But not in our hearts
Our tears Flood the Niger
Seeing a country of high and might
Of Odyssey’s and promises

Mired by miscreants and corruption
Weakened like Chad in strength
Diminishing as the valorous in sickness
It embitters our ? hearts
And murders our ? fights

Seeing we are myopic in thinking
Without visions, without missions
Except evil passions
Had America and Japan not survived oppressions

Disentangle from the
Shackles of colonialism
Emerge a new!

Happy 58th anniversary to Great NIGERIA!!!

  1. This is a satiric poem. Sadly, in the quest for making the ends rhyme, the poet failed to depict or dwell on the sad state of Nigeria.

    Poems, we must recall, can be free verse!

  2. Amazing blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m
    a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like
    Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally
    confused .. Any ideas? Bless you!

  3. I just like the valuable information you provide on your articles. I’ll bookmark your blog and test again right here regularly. I’m reasonably sure I’ll learn many new stuff right right here! Best of luck for the next!

    😉 I’m going to come back yet again since I book marked it.
