In this season of lettered thoughts,
let us draw inspiration from the men of letters.
Could it be, they forewarn of days such as these?
We started on this ‘Long Walk To Freedom’ as a nation,
until we find ourselves on ‘The Famished Road’.
From that point, we have been ‘No Longer At Ease’.
Then came the season of ‘So Long a Letter’.
Much like a script from ‘An African Night Entertainment’.
Missiles were launched in the guise of missives.
But sincerely, do we need ‘The Interpreters’
when we can see ‘Things
‘We Must Set Forth At Dawn’
to rid our country of yet another ‘Accidental Public Servant’.
So it won’t be said of Nigeria someday soon...
‘There Was a Country’.
