Once again, Ever Green!


They fought and battled

Under the majesty of a little country,

Though big, we seemed little

Finally we got it!

We were FREE!

Once again, over the half century lived

We remember the toil of hard-work

On our ever brown soil

The skin turned brown under the scorching sun

Toiling for so many years

We made a living

We were once  made Kings

Royalty of the beautiful green homeland

United by our farmlands, crops and the common language that made us

Part of a great continent; Africa

Today we celebrate 52 years of solidarity

 

Happy Independence day to all Nigerians! (from a daughter of the soil: Emerald).. Wishing you all a blissful Celebration!
