Soyombo Ayomikun: National Conference or a gathering of vultures? (Poetry)

   Both young and old

   As I sensed that a gathering of ‘Judases’

   That was my picture of the National Confab

   Devoid of passions or dreams

   Of souls infested by greed

   With no gains of coins or gold attached

   Of minds burning for change


   That 492 souls will be gathered

2.Then I heard

   A buffet of deceit and lies

   The weak ones labelled ‘masses’

   Of souls infested by greed

   Invited to come with empty pouches

4.A storm of pains

6.We have journeyed

   Is about to be baptized

   A confab of the weak,the strong,& the mighty

   Of what should be a glorious venture

   With no remuneration that will lure in ‘Judases’

Op-ed pieces and contributions are the opinions of the writers only and do not represent the opinions of Y!/YNaija.

   As ripe gold awaits to be carted away

7.We don’t want a gathering of vultures

   Whirled within my heart’s chambers

   Devoid of passions or dreams

   At the National Confab

   A long long way

   We don’t want an assembly

   At the National Confab

5.I’m now seeing pictures

We don’t want a gathering of vultures

by Soyombo Ayomikun

   Of souls converging to eat our education



   At our National Confab

   We don’t want an assembly

   Of men gathering to drink our good roads

   To each man that gets the slot

   At our National Confab

   With beautiful dream-filled hearts…for Nigeria!!!

   Than to now be making a joke

3.Allegedly 9 million naira goes

1.A solemn gathering

   At the National Confab

8.The Confab we want is that of sacrificial hearts

   A conference of Nigeria’s brightest minds

   In a land where diseases and poverty daily strikes

   As if it were some ‘ghost contracts’

   Seeking to light the path into tomorrow
