How to Completely Destroy a Battered Black Nation from within Its Borders Using Ethnic-cum-Religious Divide

Use a tsunami.

This country will be drowned
Not by falling into a river
But by staying submerged in it.
What we have is not a river.
The chaoses are a tsunami.

The elitist treachery of our governments
Are bearing monstrous fruits.
Far reaching fruits making
The news from:
North
East
West and
South!

There is no language
I have not learned to pray in.
Because we are now
To learn to shoot again;
To join the vigilantes
In chasing savage bloody herders
Out of our forests.
So that farming can go on
Around our fertile towns by the seas.

There is no holy name
I have not done mantra with.
Just think of being randomly kidnapped
By armed bandits.
In the depth of the forests
They read out your huge ransom
To your family rich or poor.
Your family may never see you again
Yet they must pay your ransom.

The armed forces and police
Are shooting at #EndSARS protesters at Lekki tollgate.
The entire state secret service
Knows nothing about banditry and wanton kidnappings
Ongoing all around.
They only know Omoyele Sowore
And #RevolutionNow protesters.

The governors and clergies
Are posted to negotiate with bandits.
Aha! a senator just found his voice.
He is trying to explain how
They, the lawmakers, are better
Than the bandits and kidnappers.

But this country will be drowned
Not by falling into a river
But by staying submerged in it.
For the vices are but a progeny
Of government treachery over the years.

And no inventor ever attacks his progeny.
Hence the oncoming tsunami.
