Poetry: There is a Country

There is a Country
By Abdulkabir Olatunji

This is the story
Of a country
That had so much glory
Where husbands called wives ‘honey’
And wives never lacked money
Oh! What a great history
But things are now ugly
The tale becomes gory
As people bury
Friends with whom they made merry
It is all so sorry
We all cry for a remedy
For such a tragedy
That makes the future look blurry
This is a tale of which country?
Of that you be the jury
