Inspiring Change Through Literature and Media

Poem: Just A Little Yeast … (Happy Independence Nigeria)

Happy World Poetry Day everyone. I dropped this one on last Independence Day. It’s a lovely piece I wrote about Nigeria. Please enjoy!!!


Evil triumphs where good men do nothing!
-Edmund Burke

When ‘ordinary’ men underrate the power of their ‘little’ contribution, they stop trying altogether.However in Nation Building, even little good makes a world of difference…


A few good men
to buttress the truth

A few praying men
to stand in the gap…

A few upright men
to uphold the arm of justice

A few hopeful people
to dream of a brighter tomorrow…

Little noble acts
Little brave tendencies
Little words of faith
Little deeds of kindness

Small men
resisting inequality
Ordinary men
standing against corruption

Common men
rising against oppression

Everyday people
insisting on justice

A few strong voices
to speak for the poor

A few strong structures
o support the human family

Please grant that our collective ‘few‘ good acts adds up to exalt this nation and attract Your Supreme intervention!
