NIGERIAN SUPER EAGLES (POEM)

advertisement

eleased by the nation like the eagle

and requested to return home

with glowing gold of glory of honour.

And to carry the trophy

with your gripping talon and clasping claws,

an action that befits the name

you have chosen to wear.

Is the eagle

not the messenger of Jupiterís thunderbolts?

Adored and respected

since time began?

And with your spirit of tenacity,

you swiftly swooped on the Burkinabe team

and delivered a goal

before the excited spectators,

in the same manner

the eagle snatches a chick

after its keen eyes have eyed

its potential victim.

And with the strength

of your flapping wings,

you, the supereagle

has carried us to a high height.
