…by Poetic Tee, “Here, take a sip”

High up in the heavens, a dark day made darker

As the sun looked down upon earth threateningly

Wearing a face of fierce, fresh, flowing molten magma

From an angry volcano, erupted in flowery, flamy flares

Menacingly spraying poisonous ashes sky high in directions

Puffing, scorching, charring, sharing death wantonly in a crawl

Snaking rivers of destruction upon innocence on unplanned paths

Hearts dislodged from safe cages, take positions in scared throats

Struggling to climb onto thousands of tongues in distilled fear

As terror sparkles in terrified eyes, like fireworks on display

Chaos, pandemonium all across the land of many a mind

Stormy collage of scenes, jumping in and out, quaking

Seems like the unwelcome Armageddon, told of aye

It’s naught, but fake devastations, devil-inspired

One starts the count as anxiety takes center stage

Breaths are held, occasioned by bumpy anticipations

It’s been done before, three times with detailed accuracy

Can there ever be a change, so truth prevails over falsehood?

Many asked as prayers offered vanquish oppressive evil schemes

Carefully planned for execution, but countered by birds in torrents

Millions in flight, casting stones of light on darkened souls, obliterating

Suddenly, like the Big Bang that started it all for this universal sojourn

Ecstatic euphoria as celebrations unprecedented fills up the streets

Shouts of joy, praises, voices rent the air from Maiduguri to Lagos

Car honks, blares declaring a grim battle fought, landslide won

Bayelsa to Sokoto set aglow with colorful acrobatic dancers

Gyrating to music of various sort rhyming in one harmony

Giving birth to renewed hope of a new nation, NIGERIA.
