Fortunate but unfortunate tales remain to be told

How do you celebrate with so many deaths afloat 

Accomplished accomplishments 

That story could only be narrated as a joke 

Riddle me Nigeria at sixty

A black lady; I wonder if she looks pretty

With such disaster in her belly; I wonder if she will be happy

Despite her false CV; I guess she celebrates being guilty

To be optimistic we can celebrate being alive 

But the memories of our dead should not be out of sight

Say a prayer or two for the Heroes who laid down their lives

Nigeria after sixty, be glad to be alive
