Today is democracy day
Am wondering what the president will say
What will be his report for the last four years
How did he manage the people’s fears ?
Who will be the bearer of truth and equality?
This country lacks peace and equity
Will they tell us how to achieve unity and love?
Or add more problems we cannot solve?
Let them show us their report card with facts
There greatest works and the impacts
That they have made in lives of Nigerians
For there is hunger among the people
School children still go to school without shoes
Starving babies wasting away in hospital beds
There is shortage of malaria medications
The old ones are emancipating, death not so far
My country is suffering from depression
Her people are crying daily for a change
The rulers are preaching this change every day
Yet it’s a different kind of change they show us
They tell us they will feed the school children
Yet the children are dying of hunger, bitter lies
Today is the d-day, after years of struggles
For a government for the people by the people
But still the same things that never change…
