The Zoo

In Nigeria, we dreamt
We don’t want to Wake up
In Nigeria, we had nightmares
We don’t want to sleep

The Ibos sees Nigeria as a zoo
They are tired of being caged
The Yorubas plays political football
They are tired of godfathers
The Hausas endures almajiri
The cabals have no rivalry

I think we must go back to sleep
Because the dream is not over yet
We must stay awake and watch
Because we re no longer a colony
