Scarcity Promotes Trekking

In Nigeria
Another word for trekking is footwagen
Making trekking the saving grace
This period of horrid fuel scarcity
Where queues of legs fervently
Compete with queues of cars_
The piston and ring of my two long legs
Grew worked and weary
After trekking this day
45 kilometers per hour
Home to work, work
To home respectively leaving the
Carburetor of my throat boiling
When drinking a keg of water to cool it
Why should I ask:
"Nigeria! Nigeria!! Where are we going?"
When politician reading this will
Mock my plaintive throat.
Who is to blame?
We wanted change
We never clarified
Whether negative or positive.
