THINGS FALL APART

Things fall apart

The centre cannot hold

This book as written by late Prof. Chinua Achebe

represents a revelation of the present situation of our Nation.

Things fall apart

Mediocrity is enthroned

creativity is dethroned

Things fall apart

More than 80% of our citizens

Live below one dollar per day

Things fall apart

Many of our graduates have been shot

with the bullets of unemployment

Things fall apart

The difference between our graduates

and the market women is six, and half a dozen

Things fall apart

Our votes were sold for a sachet of “indomie”

Things fall apart

Our mean, materialistic leaders continue to dance

to the drumbeat of shame in the market of corruption

Things fall apart

Indeed things has fallen apart

The walls of our unity are cracking

the centre is shaking

Leaders of today!

If we do not stop this rain of corruption

Things fall apart

If we do not stand up and work

to put food on our table

Things fall apart

If we do not come together to build our Nation

Things fall apart

If things continue to fall apart

then the gods are no to blame

In the strength of our numbers

in the unity of our diversity

is that great Nation, Nigeria!
