I
What a breed
of creed is Nigeria?
her weed,
full of greed.

II
What a seed
of reed is Nigeria?
her field,
full of yield.

III
What a meed
of heed is Nigeria?
her peed,
full of teed.

IV
What a treed
of freed is Nigeria?
her need,
full of feed.

V
What a beef
of freak is Nigeria?
her cows,
full of lows.

  1. Interesting…
    Prof, it isn’t uncounth to see another poem written by you.
    Sometime, I wonder how you managed to attend to all these essential needs of humanity.
    Though, some are sentiment of human justice which interplay punishing, self-defense and sympathy.
    However, I admire your courageous belief and intelligent.
    Keep the spirit on. The world needs such viable ideas.
