SLAVERY

With prophetic eye I peer into the future
and I saw that we shall perish;
this evil we all conceal
I see, would eventually eat us up.

With prophetic eye I look to our future,
I see that religiosity would munch us.
With no forbidden limits, I saw terror
I see, religion won’t help us.

With prophetic eye I see the future;
I see that revolt of ethnicity nailed us,
With excesses of clannishness and rut
I saw oppression from hate and tribal line.

With prophetic eye I peer to the future
I see that we perished in partiality,
With no compassion as we met our waterloo
I saw that, monsters of disunity delighted.

With prophetic eye I peer into the future;
and I saw skeletons hanging from betrayal,
With great incendiary marshes in greed
I saw rage of hunger and misery.

With prophetic eye I peer into the future:
I see that government became wry
with dilapidated conditions too late to salvage,
I saw the lines of our existence vanishing.

With prophetic eye I peer into the future
and saw that we were mad and insensitive,
With corollary lurks of anguish;
I saw that Nigeria ceased to exist.
