I

Nigeria of my dreams,
in years past,
great, and stately,
in hearts of brails.

II

Nigeria of my creams,
in fears present,
freak, and stalely,
in hands of frails.

III

Nigeria of my teams,
in dears future,
dread, and straitly,
in heads of tails.

IV

Nigeria of my breams,
in tears trance,
tread, and strafe,
in minds of wines.

V

Nigeria of my seams,
in rears stance,
treat, and sanely,
in minds of mines.
