  POEM: Really, Nigeria Is Independent?By Emeka Chiakwelu Arbitrary winking as set free in 1960Given a flag to hoist without metaphorGiven a national anthem to sing without clarityGiven a pledge of allegiance to recite without thoughtGiven a foreign language to speak, dream, cogitateHinged in freedom symbols devoid of significanceWhile fisted chains of bondage speaks volume, rattlingFor the eye to see, ears to hearWhere is your identity?Paraphernalia, accessories of country does not make a nationNation is organic with soul and bloodBut are you capable of nuanced thoughts?Too complicated for a simpleton to comprehendWhat do you know about Independent?What do you know…

Her sense of entitlement was totally waned and her emerging personality as a trusted friend was transparent. With a…
