DISTRIBUTION.

 

DISTRIBUTION.

Nigerian politicians distribute,
Wealth to family, relatives, and sycophants,
And distribute penury to the masses.

Nigerian politicians distribute,
Oil blocks to family, relatives, and sycophants,
And distribute environmental pollution to the masses.

Nigerian politicians distribute,
Electric generators to family, relatives, and sycophants,
And distribute darkness to the masses.

Nigerian politicians distribute,
Imported bottled water to family, relatives, and sycophants,
And distribute unsanitary water sachets and oil polluted water to the masses.

Nigerian politicians distribute,
Overseas education to family, relatives, and sycophants,
And distribute closeted local universities to the masses.

Nigerian politicians distribute,
Sinecures to family, relatives, and sycophants,
And distribute unemployment to the masses.

Nigerian politicians distribute,
Jet aircrafts to family, relatives, and sycophants,
And distribute rickety minibuses to the masses.

Nigerian politicians distribute
iPhones to family, relatives, and sycophants
And distribute whistles to the masses.

Now the masses are using their whistles,
To rat on the politicians,
Call it wealth redistribution or whistle blowing,
The masses are finally getting their revenge.

  1. Maybe, you under estimate the depth of the stack ignorance/illiteracy and abject uneducated nature of the people you are dealing with, even if, many of them, hold college degrees. I bet you sir, many of them do not understand the ideas of Common good, oneness of humanity, contentedness, humanity, brotherhood of mankind, community, society, nation, neighborhood, public services, spirit of sharing, etc.,but bask in Me, Me, and mine, mine. slogan.
    We may overlook, the mere fact that most of them, may not in truth, express full understanding of the ideas of, for instance: Equality before the law, Justice, liberty and freedom and individual right of belonging to the nation, and moreover, development of culture and the individual and community at the same time, for the benefit of all citizens.

    When most of these politicians understand most of these ideas, concepts and human ideals, then, through emulation, most will be able to sincerely see themselves : their lives as really connected to the lives of other peoples ,not only in their FAMILY, nation, community, but to all mankind, and therefore linked naturally together as world community. This may then behoove a sense of, not “we and them” but “US” , and hence, enhance their capacity to engender and foster proper distribution of the wealth of the nation. However, remember that in the end, politics naturally is not based as it were, on REASONABLENESS as such, but most often on, irrationality, because, man, as Freud, says is “a wolf to man”, “HOMO HOMINI LUPUS”. Thank you.

  2. Nigerian Politicians have not yet get it together
    They need the lesson of being human not inhuman
    Inhuman behavior shows that they are animals
    When they distribute wealth and riches to their children
    The poor masses are also someone’s children
    What are they being distributed

    Thanks be to God for thoughtful Nigerians
    Who understood the need to use their gift of writing
    Nigerians need to stand up for the truth
    Truth will set us free only when we believe
