Poetry: Nigeria Dies Of Nigeria

She bleeds to death
Her life flees before her eyes
Her open wound gushes out her essence
She lays helpless in the mire

She is a disease to herself
Struck down by her very own self
Sold into slavery by her own hands
She alone pimped out her purity

Nigeria dies of Nigeria
Poisoned by the rivers of the Niger
She drowns in the Benue
Her lungs filled with her own venom

She birthed sires clothed in stupidity
Souls so vain even hades is awed
They would be her death if the tide is unchanged
Nigeria dies of Nigeria
