I KNOW OF A COUNTRY THAT ONCE WAS (a poem by Abiola Fausat)

Read Time:44 Second
I know of a country that once was
 With happy citizen living in harmony 
 As one nation with one voice 
 Though of different tribes and tongues
                 
 I know of a country thatonce was
 Where the leaders were the followers
 And the followers were the leaders
 And all lived in togetherness and peace
  
 I know of a country that once was
 History says it used to flow of milk and honey
 Perhaps that is too long ago a time
 For all that is left of it is ruin
  
 I know of a country that is no more
 Its people cry out hoping for redemption
 While it also stares at the people
 Hoping be saved as it bleed
