Next Level of Unmitigated Disaster
Change they promised the masses
Crafted spell of impending doom
In fury and vengeance spread across the land
With deft political propaganda surpassing Joseph Goebbels in The Third Reich
Marketing lies and hoaxes that made P.T. Barnum novice in circus show
Wicked purveyors of misleading narratives
Created false optics in the country
“You’re are at the very bottom”, they warned.
“Your condition is dire. Change is our promise if voted into power”.
The credulous masses went berserk
In frenzy threw caution to the wind
Brought to power Buhari they rejected 3 times!
Kicked out incumbent President, Goodluck Jonathan in unprecedented elections in this clime
Reeling under pains and agony
4 years down road of the dubious Change
In disbelief, the masses queried,
“Where’s the Change, you promised us?”
Transmuting into next level advocates, the wolves cajoled,
“Give us 4 more years.
We will take you to the next level”
And forced 4 more years mandate willy-nilly
Taking us to their own type of next-level.
And here were are…
Next level tears and sorrow
Next level pain and anguish
Next level grazing of our farmlands
Next level killings and rape of our women by marauding herders
Next level kidnapping and banditry
Next level Boko haram and terrorism in the land
Next level crisis in the country
Next level division of Fulani and indigenous people
Next level sectionalism, hatred and bigotry
Next level Islamization and Fulanization
Next level of unmitigated disaster!
