I don’t live with monsters.
Bad governance, your brother, ask him of me.
I wasn’t kind when I kicked him out.
Don’t tell me to go for foreign conferences
To discuss home problems –
Wastage of tax payers’ sweat! I won’t heed your advice.
And make my people live on widow’s mite.
I won’t lie, to reach that position up high.
I won’t cheat and not pay those that teach.
Neither will I bribe to eat the dowry of the nation’s bride.
It’s meant for all.
I’m not forming a cabal, to please political godfather called Baba.
Corruption, please move out. Or I will get you arrested.
I’m not your kin and my house is not your inn.
Please leave and pack your bags of lies and tricks. I won’t miss you.
‘Cos truth stays nearby!
