Who Fights Freedom by Isoboye Danagogo

Who fights freedom?

When freedom fighters fights freedom?
When insurgency fights freedom?
When political party fights freedom?
Who then fights our starving tummy?
With good stomach infrastructure

If you ask me,
Who then will I ask?
Of our missing girls,
In our missing budget?
Who do we ask?

Of our electrons and protons
that loose scent in lightbulbs.
Who then will say we don’t have roads?
When we drive through fuel prize
with enfolding queues,

Catapulting our suffering lives;
Like a burnt meal in a frypan.
Who can fight for freedom?
As old soldiers fights pensions,
Day in day out without stipends of weldone

Who can fight for freedom?
With fists of Nelson Mandela;
Not with the hands that needs amala.
Who can fight for freedom?
Without chewing something even kola

Who fights freedom?
