#WarOfWords3: This is not an Irony by James Ademuyiwa Jamesconco

We want mental-slavery not freedom
We want injustice not justice
But I tell you the truth
This is not an Irony

Totalitarianism is what we want
Not Government of the people
Socialism our harbinger of hunger
All we need is favoritism
But I tell you the truth
This is not an Irony

Captivated press is our desire
Not a Mouth-piece of the masses
Those that will dance to news
Of horror, not hearty patriots
But I tell you the truth
This is not an Irony

Not a secured future we want
Neither leaders of tomorrow
But opinion antagonist
When securing the throne of power
But I tell you the truth
This is not an Irony

We want blood stream of horror
Not the flow of peace in our blood stream
Neither we want land flowing with milk and honey
We want abduction without
Search for the kidnapped ones
Still, I’m saying the truth
This is not an Irony

Citadels where striking is thought,
Where knowledge is acquired
Only to be faced with mental segregation
In the industries of no assured future
Is what we truly want
And this is not an Irony

Looting of oil fund is our plea
Not offering of public dividends
Oligarchy to Aristocracy is our desire
Not I in you, you in me Democracy
This truth is from our hearts
And it is not an Irony
