The Two Telling Twins
The federal republic of Nigeria has her own administrative sins
Compared to Ghana, they are both mismanaged twins
They are both controlled by political alphabet
NDC, PDP, NPP, APC, where citizens in hardship live as tenants.
Both are geographically close
But boozed by corruption dose
Between Ghana and Nigeria, one is Mr. And the other is Mrs
Between them a marriage of political promises.
Citizens of Ghana and Nigeria are migrants the world over
Because their leaders neglected them while chasing power.,
Both countries political leaders need extra classes
To fix for once the issue of energy crises.
Ghana and Nigeria are suffering from developmental inequalities
Because we have given everything to a monster called Politics.
Both countries are pregnant with vast resources
Yet, their wastage has been orchestrated by political forces.
Ghana and Nigeria share much in common
Two countries naturally endowed but poor owing to political bandwagon.
Both countries love and cherished education
Yet their streets are pregnant with degree holders without occupation
Both countries have politically loved grammar
Instead of economically lifting high a common developmental banner.
It's not too late for these twins, we can develop like Singapore
But first, we have to eradicate the corruption that causes us to be poor.
Will the future of these twins be bright?
Is possible, only if corruption runs from our site.
