Where oh where is my righteous indignation?
Where oh where has it gone?
For my nation that bleeds
Black blood for foreign thieves
Where oh where has it gone?

Where oh where is my righteous indignation?
Where oh where has it gone?
While bomb blasts resound
Scattering death on the ground
Where oh where has it gone?

Where oh where is my righteous indignation?
Where oh where has it gone?
As our leaders serve self
And our people serve wealth
Where oh where has it gone?

Where oh where is my righteous indignation?
Where oh where has it gone?
By the failures gone past
I last saw it, aghast
And now, it seems, I have none.
Where is My Righteous Indignation?
I look at Nigeria, and feel that I should be more upset about the crimes and atrocities being committed.
Hello from the other side
I've thought of you a thousand times

And I'll not say something brand new
Nor repeat again that I miss you

My heart demands, and so I say
Listen, I'll be here, till you someday

Are willing to say hello back
Hello From the Other Side
Been on my mind ever since I heard Adele's 'Hello'
So I wake up this morning
And I think I ought to write
The problem is I’m not so sure
’bout the direction of my life

Things seem to be going well
But that’s just what it is
I don’t know whether time will tell
Or that’s just what it is

Am I happy? That’s the question
There’s a bit of malcontent
Most days go by too quickly
To be caught, before they went

Suddenly, I’m just straight cruising
And it feels a bit unfair
Cause I’ve done nothing to earn this role
And yet, look at, I’m here
I started to write
But then I thought it moot
I mean the thing I had to say
Was just a bit of truth

The whole word must've known it
It wasn't new to me
So why should I express a thing
So so so ordinary?
I wonder when it was, that I stopped counting? When I decided that my grandparents need not get any older. When I suddenly froze grandmas' age in time... Talking about forever 61.

I wonder what I was doing, when I stopped counting? When the birthday celebrations started failing to register? When I began to forget that parents grow old too. "Happy 51st birthday Dad!"

I wonder if my mum, would be happy to hear, of her fountain of youth which she discovered at 50. Because for all that has happened since then, she will never get older - at least, I believe this is true.

And I wonder if I have lied, now that I'm getting older, because it's starting to be that I need to count backwards. From the year that I am, to the year I was born, and I'm confused that it exceeds 25.

So if I'm confused, how must be the confusion, for those who are older with longer to live. For I have stopped counting, and live in delusion, though I am still young - if I'm to be believed.
Old? How?
I wonder when it was...
