Poetry

MY COUNTRY, WITHOUT YOU By Opaaje Alexander Damilola

Written by Editor

Slogans without sloganeering
Nation without Nationalists
Leaders without leading
My country, I love my country!

ASUU without CONUA
Students without lecturers
Classroom without lectures
My country, I love my country!

Parents without money
Children without parents
Future without citizens
My country, I love my country!

Politicians without looting
Promises without fulfillment
Fulfillment without action
My country, I love my country!

Collar without Clergy
Auditorium without ghost…
‘Anottee’ without Anointing
My country, I love my country!

Graduates without Grades
Employees without Employment
Market without marketers
My country, I love my country!

What could my country be
Without them?
With them?
Without you,with you?
