AROUND THE COURT OF ABUJA FAME

Around the court of Abuja fame
Sit grand professors we dare not name
So clever they in politics
They sure do truck a lode of tricks.

The praise of their deaf listening king
From morning to cursed night they sing
Blaming hapless politicians
For cheating on their ambitions.

Around the court of Abuja fame
Propounding great theories crude and lame
Our professors rant chant and dance
Their rank ceevees they do enhance.

Around the court of Abuja fame
National service is just a game
They mouth and dribble all about
While people starve and die and rot.
