    The world smells of soap and water
    And soon it'll be washed clean
    The earth smells like roasted ice
    But soon it will smell nice
    Nigeria stinks like putrid blood
    Grilled flesh, coagulated flood
    Abattoir, place of slaughter
    Pardon if I offend your sensibility
    I feel like throwing up myself
    Our nation scents like stench!
    Shithole! Someone rightly said
    Nigeria is engulfed in flame
    Who is really to blame?
    The cloud is gathering
    The vultures have had their fill
    The storm has begun
    The eagles are here
    Soon it will rain! Ah! It'll rain!
    Our land will know peace again
