MAD MEN AND A FICTIONAL COUNTRY

Welcome to Nigeria;
The fictional country.

You are mad if you
don’t know that
Nigeria is a fiction!

I’m mad, and I know it is
a fiction.
I’m not mad because of them
I’m mad because
you thought your dreams
are achievable only
with their long spoons.
I’m also mad,
not because I’v not eaten
but because the larger
hungry planet of masses
will vote again
for change.

I’m mad because
we will not change
our diapers
and sing new songs.
I’m mad because
these words are too
light for the sane,
they
will
never
understand
a bit…

Only the mad can speak out!
