NIGERIA HONORS HER DEAD, MORE THAN THE LIVING.
Nigeria, the giant dwarf of Africa,
A country of incongruities, and injustice,
A land of beauty marred, and scarred,
By corruption, pollution, terrorism, bigotry,
Islamization, tribalism, and unemployment.
For the living, struggling, and dying masses,
It is a constant daily grind, to eke out,
A decent living for self, and family.
For the dead, there are opportunities galore,
For employment, elevation, and honors.
Die, and Nigeria honors you immensely.
Millions of dead Nigerians on payrolls,
Thousands of dead Nigerians on Boards,
Dead Nigerian Judges on Election Tribunals,
The sky is the limit for dead Nigerians.
Nigerian President reportedly “dead,” and
Replaced by a doppelgänger, or is
Alive, and a doppelgänger plays President.
Whatever is the case, the dead are a
Force in everyday Nigerian life.
Coming soon, Dead Nigerian Trial Judges,
Will be presiding over living Nigerians,
In courtrooms all over Nigeria.
Nigeria does indeed honor her dead,
More than the living, and living dead.
