In the midst of the suppurative stench that ails this nation…beyond the dilapidation of infrastructure, degradation of the environment, decay of morals and destruction of laudable standards, the perverted necessity to amass ill-gotten wealth, particularly that, with amorality, disseminated from the coffers belonging to all Nigerians, mostly now, maliciously downtrodden by the albatross of impossibly eking out the mirage of an existence amid the ruination perpetuated by the perniciously destructive boots of oppression, and then… to unconscionably disgorge such treasury, especially that which belongs to Nigerians, with calloused obscenity, while wantonly oblivious to the plight of those masses… with pervasive pungency, percolates to the apex of a putrid cesspool with resounding repugnance as a cause of incessant lamentation for the nation, which blessed with much, may have forged a different destiny, perhaps, yet gloriously etched, in the sands of time.
Reflect Nigeria, reflect…

The essence of the good fight may not be valued
Nor well quantified in the weight of rubies and gold,
Or measured in accolades with standing ovations.
It may, silently and honestly be accounted for
By the rich dimension of solid integrity and
Ardent embodiment of the laudable qualities
The human race is innately endowed with.
That a legacy, yet, may be passed from one
To future generations, that humanity indeed
Is worth more than sheer hatred, prejudice,
Bigotry, plain greed, the profane and vile,
But truly possesses that which is honourable
Purely commendable, kind and simply humane.
