Eagle Square Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION
by Henry Ekwuruke, Nigeria Aug 2, 2007
Environment , Human Rights   Poetry


Were winners meet to celebrate success
Losers also meet here to oppose bad policies by and large’
Capacity deliverance at the highest levels
A place to be in the days of call to service

Our fatherland is our home; likewise our motherland
We share things in common but love
Even the land separates the two-worlds that we know
Uniting the rich for the rich against the poor

Who eats at the land of the spirits?
Eats with long spoons and dance not at the arena
The centre has been broken at the start
Our learned fellows has foretold it and we know it

It is leadership problem with this people
Learning from zero to forty without knowing
Shame to the people at the eagle square
In the strength of its day our poverty machine started

Let the sounds of trumpet sound even harder
My people should hear a different sound today
We have a winner here who speaks restoration
Our people believed their ear to hear the positive

Change our name and broaden the square
For accommodation of our offsprings coming in geometic progression
Make room for our participation for winners and losers
It is our one square after all, whether poor and privileged
Since our destination, 2020 is positive dream in the ear of all…
