CLARION CALL, poetry by: Shan Arnold

Happy Independence Nigerian Patriot’s

We knew the risks
but we chose the path,
not for our sake
but for our love ones,
& nation at large.

Its been long coming
as each war
was a blood bath,
bullets in the air
bomb blast inches away,
still we geared on
our hearts in our mouths,
but the clarion call
was much more
than our lives.

We marched to defend
the honor of our country,
the pride of our land
& the glory of our wives.

Yes we die in war
fallen like mare chickens,
yes we’re injured
& bones broken,
but No we still fought
as long as there
was a single breath.

We fought on
the clarion call
we chose to obey.

Happy Independence Nigeria.
