Voting's become a game of chance like rolling dice 
My ballot be cast 'neath the warm African skies  
A daunting question looms: will my vote count twice? 
Will leaders this time show us wisdom and advice?

I ponder over democracy's bitter consequence
T'wasn't long ago when Nigeria was in suspense 
The fear of politics neverending is real 
Lest they hear our cries and enact change that we feel 

I'm filled with anxiety by this looming election
Beware politicians' slick rhetoric and deception 
I worry if corruption seeps deep into their hearts 
Leaders should heed justice and reject such arts. 

Pray for the souls who have lost to apathy's vice 
Curse those peddlers of lies who twist the truth and entice 
Hopes for Nigeria rest upon her people's fate 
May everyone make sure their votes don't go to waste!
