NIGER DELTA: A HELL ON EARTH! (POEM)

iger Delta is a blessed but
Raped region.
In the midst of providence's
Gift of rich minerals,
Her inhabitants dwell in squalor.

How do people survive
The Niger Delta habitats?
What is the buffer?
What's the anchor
that twines the daily dwellers
of Niger Delta? A mystery!

Nigeria has plundered and
Pillaged the souls of the
Niger Deltans.
A thievery nation is a soul fouler,
Nigerian agents of corruption
Are enablers of graft and payola.

Decades after decades,
Nigeria has raped, maimed and
Killed the innocent souls
Of Niger Delta.
The survivors of environmental
Degradation continue to exist
In daily pains.

While environmental
Devilement continues!
Niger Delta's Peters continue
To pay Nigerian Pauls.
The orgy of rape, corruption and Deliberate indifference continues
In a wasteland.
