The Sauce

The Sauce

A Poem by Mirror
"

Political Caps! :-)

"
At a point I almost thought
President Buhari was a parabatai of Trump
Their style is baffling
Althougth there is a hidden sense in it
Like the ruling party
Giving Nigeria a face lift
Oh yes, the incumbents
Finding their way into the vaults
The hearts
The Bellies
Of each outstanding and incredible senators
Who can make my mother
Take selfies like a teenager
The point is,
When a politician says he is
A honest man
It is like a prostitute
Saying she is a virgin
Nevertheless, I love my country
The great tourism sites
The hospitality and kindness
Creativity and pleasantries
Oh, the wedding parties
Talk more of the rich dishes
Yet, President Buhari puts in
Pull out a chair of recession
Stock exchange becomes the regular
Channels and regular progression.
Nigeria, we hail thee
Land of our birth

Hmm. In describing Nigerian politics, I almost thought you were describing U.S. politics. I don't follow politics, for the sake of my sanity, but your simile for the honest politician was excellent. I know a few who are honest, but they're from more rural districts, and they are few. I'm very glad you can still embrace the goodness of your country.

I've known some wonderful Nigerians in my life: academics, mostly. I sort of fell in love with a beautiful teenaged Nigerian boy when I was about 12, but that was one of my first experiences of racial tension, and we were not even allowed to be friends. It was the community, and my family, not his. Sorry, I got off track, but I wanted you to know that I truly appreciate your noble country and people.

I can relate to your dejection about the condition of modern politics.

The world at present does seem to lack leaders of any substance and integrity. So many politicians sign up for the job only to line their pockets and boost their ego. And from the state of politics in my country, no one can quite b***h and backstab like a group of parliamentarians!

Yet as always, we look forward to the day a person of high character shall walk into the light and truly put the welfare of country and people first.

It could be a long wait......

All the best to you in your country. For there is always patriotism even with dull politicians.

A thoughtful write, Mirror.

thank you for the insightful write.... thanks
I would vote for the prostitute anyday.
You know exactly what's she offering.
She's also way above a politician in stature.

"When a politician says he is

You're welcome!
Remember when you told me you don't want to be involved with drama or deal with me in any way? So what's up with leaving the follow comment on my work about 15 minutes ago? "@Debbie, please read his name. You are talking with a living corpse without home training and respect. Ignore him. he doesn't know anything... leave him to keep blabbing."

If you say you are going to do something, stick to it. You decide the level of interaction we have. Stay away from my poems and comments with your bullshit and you won't have to hear a single word from me.
