we A Poem About Nigerian Capitalism ~ Naija Poets

 SPN wants Nigeria to end capitalism -

It is as glaring as the gate of UI

Problem of you and I is of capitalism

Neither ancestral nor witch affiliation

Nigeria is mal-a-tete of monetized economy

Economy solely sitting on laps of tiny entities

It is as glaring as the gate of UI

Killing and kidnapping is the result of capitalism

Bombing and maiming

Rape and human slaughter

Rampart immoralities

Ravaging inhumanity

It is as glaring as the gate of UI

The scourge on retirees is capitalism

Privatized pension is laudable only if

Adam of this nation isn’t feeding fat

On sweet apple of continuous corruption

It is as glaring as the gate of UI

The cause of our nightmare is capitalism

With Bachelor or Master in your beautiful resume

Aunty Joy’s the remedy from becoming a nuisance

“Half bread is better than known”, we affirm

Yet it’s anti-joy to work at Aunty Joy

Scraping stipend towards month ending

It is as glaring as the gate of UI

These hungers is the offspring of capitalism

 No social amenities, no infrastructures

Banks and banking living on lost glories

National security still in diaper stage

With nothing to meet the irrefutable needs

Of capitalism_ Capitalism is a flop.
