Awake Nigeria Awake

Awake from your deep slumber

Peddled beyond the morn’ time

Echoes in so much lumber

Taken past our clime.


Awake Nigeria Awake

For the session is rowdy

Umaru has gone AWOL

Yet Turai hanker his role

True love’s last kiss in quake.


Awake Nigeria Awake

For declared a temporal incapacitation

Only the BBC could read his lips

In his hospital denationalization

And for us the best answer, silence.


Awake Nigeria Awake

The cabinet roles the senate

In the constitution some state

Maybe from Turai draft

But Dora only remembered her oath.


Awake Nigeria Awake

To awake Umaru from his November

For “omugwo” his governors now go

As Turai was to busy to remember

Shipping oxygen and others for a flow.


Awake Nigeria Awake

Awake to awake Umaru

And ask what fate to await

The Niger-Delta repentant militant

Or they will build other crates in the wake.


Awake Nigeria Awake

From scarcity as means of existence

From poverty as way of life

From the dead dream of the inexperience

From kidnapping like taken a wife.



Awake oh Nigeria Awake!

Cos we can’t tell the police from robbers

Our roads are easy means for suicide

We sleep with our hearts by the side

Incase the horde comes in numbers.


Awake Nigeria Awake

For our land is now a satire

Where Aondoka grapples Akunyili

That for the truth she must retire

Or keep her mouth shot for the sake.


Awake Nigeria Awake

And hold our hands for our sake

To unite this great state

Not our hopes on slate

For these old  ‘ll not leave us break.
