Just Thinking... POETRY

REVOLUTIONARY MACHINE written by Femi Hephef Falodun

Wondering if anyone else has noticed

This quiet storm sweeping a hot land.

From the Atlantic coast to the edge of the hot sand

Revolutionary machine wielding words as swords

Engines running on brilliant young bloods:

The new breed. Though born of the failed generation,

Yet determined not to fail. To fuel a lagging nation

Powered by generators, above whose noise

They generate and elevate a vibrant louder voice.

Collectively Conscious, Creatively Compact.

Faceless behind Mark’s book, they attack

On a quest to re-write a blotted history

Twittering, blogging and poking their way to victory.

Dedicated to all 44.6 million Nigerian internet users
