Happy Independence Ke?!

What is there to be happy about? Nigeria is forty-FRIGGIN-Seve... that is way over the hill, with nothing to show for it. And like a toddler:

When Nigeria speaks, her voice does not count
All she can do is stagger along
Half heartedly pretending an attempt
At catching up with other nations
When she tries to take off in a trot
She hits her head against something
And lands squarely on her butt
Not that the head is worth much anyway
The only matter in it is corruption and mediocrity!
What has Nigeria done for anyone
Except to dash dreams or
To go further and convert them to Nightmares
What has Nigeria given us
Except heartache not to mention disgrace
You cannot hold your head high
If you hold a green passport
What is it in this land
That turns us all to grabbing animals
With no care for tomorrow...
What ailment has Nigeria got that is incurable?
Who can deliver this country then
from the deep black hole
She's somehow gotten herself into!
