Aminu Aliyu’s DAWN OF IMPATIENCE ‪#‎FoundPoetry‬

Tijjani Muhammad Musa's photo. (As found by Poetic Tee “Here, take a sip”)

It's dangerously unacademic
An oriented intellectual builds
Inflammatory speculations
On bricks of hasty conclusions
Without thorough study, survey
'Why things happen the way they do'
The current political hullabaloo
Hovering, a magnificent hubbub
No doubt, a good example.

Unwise and unbecoming
People of this great country
That have stood together
Fought together
Clamoured change together
Yet vast majority of minds
Bedeviled by placid strings
Religious, regional toga
Created by dawn of impatience.

When shall we guard
Our souls
From this tyranny
Northerner, southerner
What pettish disgust?
When has it become eligible
For a job to depend
On where you come from
Or which Almighty God
You serve
