Do you believe a son
can solemnly love his mother –
bleed for his motherland and republic
in the very heartbeat of his soul
yet repeatedly betray n’ rape her?
You’ll say nay,
never mind how bizarre, illogical,
foolish, spiteful or unthinkable
but men do it, I’ve done so,
you’ve too, we still do
and continues to –
citizens of Nigeria;
we’re our ancestors worse nightmare.
