Yes, They Slap Court Judges In The Land Of Honour-Part 3 By Niyi Osundare

They slap Court Judges
In the “Land of Honour”
Eewo*! Yes, they slap Court Judges
In the “Land of Honour”
And the Hero who wrought the feat
Is on his way to a national honour

Lawless country, unruly rulers
Primal jungle, mindless muddle
Haba, lawless country, unruly rulers
Primal jungle, mindless muddle
Shambling, shambling from error to error
Between the pit and the perilous puddle

In its stone castle near the desert
Abuja sees nothing, hears nothing
Say, somewhere near the desert
Abuja sees nothing, hears nothing
But who doesn’t know the mob magnate down south
Commits all his crime at Abuja’s imperial bidding?

This house is falling
Our rulers say it’s only swaying
Alas, this house is falling
But our rulers say it’s only swaying
The hyena laugh from the throne of power
Has kept the wise forever wondering

Impunity mates Immunity
And the union begat Imuniti*
Say, Impunity mated Immunity
And the union begat Imuniti
The land writhes in the stranglehold
Of those who handle our fate with levity

* Unarrestability, beyond arrest; unaccountability
