Soyombo Ayomikun: America will surely know (Poetry)

by Soyombo Ayomikun


The present location.  Of our kidnapped children. A question I can’t really answer now. Be rest assured that America will know

1. Wondering who brought Nigeria

To this pitiful state of decay

That disease wrecking our bones

America will know


2. You,just try for once

To dip your hands into our treasury

Even if I don’t see you

America will know


3. Thinking about the killer

That caused another blast at Nyanya

Though we don’t really have the answer

Just know that America will know


4. The present location

Of our kidnapped children

A question I can’t really answer now

Be rest assured that America will know


5. If there will be yet another blast

If more children will be kidnapped

If Boko Haram will at the end become history

America will know


6. The question about the national confab

Yielding something worthwhile at the end

What would become of our revenue sharing formula

America will know


7. Wondering why the ‘blinged pastor’

Stratified the list of abducted girls by religion

Big question so difficult to answer

But then,America will know


8. Reason why Sanusi can no longer fly

Freely to & from wherever he wills

Reason why Abba Moro has not been sacked

America will know


9. If Nigeria will break up at the end

Separated by fault lines of ethnic differences

If ballot boxes will be snatched come 2015

America will know
