NIGERIA IS LIKE A FLOWER ARRANGEMENT.
Notice a flower arrangement at birth.
Beautiful, a smorgasbord of colors,
Shapes, forms, and varied species.
Alluring, expressive, and evocative.
Notice what time does to the arrangement.
Colors change, wilting, and decay set in.
Once enticing arrangement becomes an
Eyesore that has to be discarded.
Welcome to Nigeria, a flowery arrangement,
Crafted by British Imperialists, to
Continue to control Nigeria and Nigerians,
As a puppeteer controls a puppet from afar.
Time has exposed the weakness of the
Once flowery arrangement, discoloration,
Wilting, and decay has set in, creating an eyesore.
Now is the time to discard the arrangement.
Instead of arranging discordant flowers,
And twigs in a vase, maybe enduring
Flowers, twigs, and shrubs should be planted,
Not arranged in a vase. This is Restructuring!
One thought on “NIGERIA IS LIKE A FLOWER ARRANGEMENT.”
Africastallestman, this is a philosophical, encapsulation of the Nigeria state today, but may be if our leaders will have a second chance at making a genuine conscious effort to truly creating a One Nigeria State, devoid of tribal and statism sentiments.
