TIME TO REMINISCE-Sonnet in Blessed Memory of M.K.O Abiola


Time to Reminisce

Nigeria’s Sacrificial lamb;

History embedded in gold must forever cram,

By raising an alarm,

To people who violently harm,

Innocent victims arm!

Winner of the freest , yet fairest election,

Annulled due to unruly delegation,

Handshakes received from venomous snakes,

Living like fake mist but still remain half-baked.

Democracy must never pretend to rectify mistakes.

Why must we read palms?

When Almighty God will always be the perfect balm!

To avoid eating forbidden cakes,

Leaders think twice before you choose deadly stakes.
