Checkout this Nigerian poetry titled “War against corruption” and written by, Ayeni Tolulope.

They came drumming like Bantu warriors
Claiming they had a war to fight
And the capacity to be victorious

They had composed the songs of victory
Before the war began the spoils were shared
So we danced to their beats like a possessed medium

Yes, we were confident the messiah is here
No, we were deceived by the confident looks
For warriors they are not, but charlatans
