H O M E C O M I N G H A R A N G U E

It didn’t work when I tried to wriggle out of my being. I am in TOO DEEP.
I confined myself within to SHUT THE WORLD out, all to no avail
The time I spent in the west was well spent vigour, and MONEY too
Once again, the orderliness as consistent as always, spoke volumes
She made manifest, the yawning gap between them, and our alleged DEVELOPING one
The development that seems to take five steps backwards for every two AND A HALF forward
My eyes burn, my head aches, my skin crawls, my toes squirm and MY FIST tightens
Every so often I curse out loudly at MYSELF, for it has reverberated on my wound up windows
If only my Canon Digital SLR was an AA-12 combat shotgun, I would point and KILL
The success a REBRANDED state might be hinged on the DEMISE of most of you
Your leaders are more concerned about HOW YOU DRESS than your getting an EDUCATION
I am ENCOURAGED to seek solace in my remuneration for I am bereft of job satisfaction
I’m turning in my military hardware for AMNESTY is nigh and TIME is of the essence
It is only we who can fight for us so pray allow me to CRY my own CRY

Temite said...

ha....well
It is ... what it is....
Development is and will always be relative....
We look up to the west as if they themselves are "developed" or "educated".
Anyways Hope u are good
XOXO

bArOquE said...

Temite, i'm good, thanks...seeing your relativity ratio of development, then we cannot but say that the west is developed & educated compared to you...do you want to debate this?

~M.Whitman, its just you my dear.LOL...i think i have had it with this resilience, the truth is, i no longer think it will get better...please prove me wrong

Carefully thought out lines. Nice blog

Queen of My Castle said...

I honestly don't think it to be proper for me to comment. I would, however, like to inject hope for a better Nigeria, for truly she has produced some of the most talented, insightful, charming, and witty people that I have come to both know and love deeply.

How are you, hunny bee? I've missed you...

bArOquE said...

~Tisha, i'm trying to hang in here...thanks dear

~HYAW, i wish i thought the lines out before i wrote...hahaha

~MyQueen, i totally agree with you but these talented, insightful, charming and witty Nigerians that we have both come to know & love deeply are so not because of where they come from...hope for a better Nigeria sounds nice...i've missed you too queenie.xx

CaramelD said...

LusciousRon said...

I like this look. Hope you are back fully.

ablackjamesbond said...

Dude! Good to have u back.
There is nothing really in the horizon to support that things will improve but somewhere deep down within me, I know it will, the sooner people like u and I start doing what we need to do instead of just talking about are things are. I really believe one person can make a difference. You make a difference in your world and I will do the same in my world.

It can get better...only if we decide to make it so.
