Civil Servant

Thousands of our young geniuses without assignments
Thousands of spent out geniuses in our fruitless employments
Thousands of our used work-forces in poverty of retirement
Millions of NAIRA in currencies of embezzlement

Retirement should be a source of joy to our humbled works
But it's a source of fear in doubt for aftermath sustenance
White hair now become the thing of pride in our fruitless service
Why keeping the entitlement from those that earned the payments

Re-organise the scopes of Pension scheme and entitlement
and realise millions of spaces for our wasted geniuses
Hello mum, how is your health?
We have not been paid in the last 6month
65 or 55 no man desires death as a worker in your slavery scheme
Ascertain the retirement scheme & realise reduction in unemployment

Our promised land has everything except Aaron and Moses
Our Souls are only interested in self-wealth and power
Our Solomons are yet to be embraced for our common needs
Our choosen Solomon with thy wisdom, when will thou come?
