Nature blessed – Man cursed

Africa shoesBy Odimegwu Onwumere

Saying that people are suffering
untold hardship in this country of ours
that was blessed by nature
but cursed by the people
who were supposed to protect us
but never did,
could mean saying stale news.

What is news today
is that people bend the truth
to be nice.
This is very bad.

They have no regret
and do not show any remorse.

They have no charity
in their hearts,
but troubles of the heart
on how to hoodwink us,
we that have been raped
of our yesterday, today
and who knows when.
