Soyombo Ayomikun: Alleged Looters Of Nigeria Falling Sick… Karma Or Drama??

Poem………..

 

  1. We heard

He stole

Millions,

We heard

He carted our treasures

Away

To distant

Shores.

We heard

He once dressed

As a woman

To escape

Being caught…

Then we heard

He died!

Though we didn’t

Know the whole truth,

Some wondered

If it was all

Karma or drama…

Or a non-fictitious sad twist

To the plot?

  1. He was decorated

To battle

In our

Place,

To buy us

Guns,

And bombs,

And fighter jets,

So the chains

On our Chibok daughters

Can be

Destroyed,

So Boko Haram

Can become

Rubbles,

So we can

Again enjoy

The dusk

In peace-

Watching children play

Beneath the moon,

From the smallest

Of our villages

To the biggest

Cities-

We heard

He also

Stole,

We heard

Dealings in the dark

Were orchestrated

By him.

As he was called

To recount

He sought

To fly

To greener shores

For medical check-up,

As if Nigeria

Has lost

Its hospitals

And great healthcare

Providers

That conquered

Ebola

To enemy bombs

Or whatever.

We heard

He has

Cancer.

The truth is indeed

Beyond us,

But one

Can’t but wonder

If it is all

Karma or drama…

Or a non-fictitious sad twist

To the plot?

  1. She was

The emblem

Of power,

The goddess

Of our oil,

Beautiful,

Confident,

And smart.

For her

We also heard

She stole,

We heard

She embezzled

Loads of naira,

To the point of making

White men cringe.

As her past

Was questioned,

Then we heard

She has

Cancer.

Several

Didn’t believe.

Despite a renowned writer

Meeting her

Taking her pictures

And sharing

With the world,

Still countless

Chose to

Disbelieve…

‘Karma shouldn’t strike

That fast’

They said…

They are still

Wondering

If it is all

Karma or drama…

Or a non-fictitious sad twist

To the plot?

  1. To condemn

Without proof

Is foolish,

But the ancient wisdom

Remains

That smoke doesn’t

Get birthed

Without a fire.

Confusion

Is enveloping

Nigeria,

With the truth

Taking on the skin

Of the winds.

Our judiciary barks

But doesn’t bite,

Our leaders scream ‘foul’

But then become mute

After seeing

Some ‘divine visions’.

Why do we

Keep chasing

‘Shadows’?

And if our targets

Ain’t shadows

Why does justice

Find it almost impossible

To strike?

We are lost

Wondering

If it is all

Karma or drama…

Or a non-fictitious sad twist

To the plot?
