It’s about the crimes and the evils
It’s about the government and its people

It’s the corruption and injustice
The judiciary and court cases

The looters and the probes
The committees of the probes

The Government says "it has prospects"
yes, but prospects ain't success...Sir!
We have the "can-do spirit"
Intentions are good but the spirit can only intend...
rather pretend.

This Government has more panels than the panel-beater
More probes than the crime
More crimes than its people.
More people than their Reps.

Yet we sit and watch
we sit and expect change
we cry in our church
we expect God to rearrange?

Probes were for resolutions
rather we get recommendations and not implementations
we spend funds to probe
then we turn around to probe the funds?

I love Nigeria, but I don't like Nigeria

Tired of wishing for the best
Tired of keeping grudge in my chest
Now I must rest.

Rest assured that I still have hope
even as events unfold like the opera's soap
