POEM: WELCOME TO ZAMFARA STATE

Welcome to Zamfara state,
A land with plain lands that has dry soil and grasses on every side
Welcome to Zamfara state,
A land where farming is their pride
Welcome to Zamfara state,
A home that houses numerous houseflies
This time, I will have to speak the truth and ignore the lies
Welcome to Zamfara state,
A place where you hear more ina kwana than good morning
A place where you feel the wrath of the sun when it’s sunny
Welcome to Zamfara state,
A place where extremism is on the extreme
Nature can be very hash but Alhamdulilah is placed on a high esteem
Welcome to Zamfara state,

Where you see a very pretty lady who can’t speak English, she will say ba turanchi
Tell her ina sonka and she will start bringing you Abincin
Welcome to Zamfara state,
A place where Islam is well practised
A land that as well give Christianity the chance to be practised
Welcome to Zamfara state,
Where virtually all women covers their body with long Ijabs
A place where both young boys and old men put on kaftan and their lifestyle like that of the Arabs


Welcome to Zamfara state,
Where northerners aren’t westernized
A place way too far from being civilized
A place where drinking is illegal and smoking is legalized
A place real life is yet to be realized
Welcome to Zamfara state,
A place where education is taken with levity
A place liberty isn’t free from frivolity
Welcome to Zamfara state,
An emblem of triviality
A place where illiteracy speaks with audacity
A place where modernity don’t have mobility
Welcome to Zamfara state,
Where the rich and the poor can’t be distinguished
A place where Al-Majiris can’t be extinguished
Welcome to Zamfara state,
A place cattle, donkeys and cars walk together on the main road
A place where the things of the past hasn’t died or grown old

Welcome to Zamfara state,
A place where corp members feel like aliens
They’re treated by indigenes as viewed either as pathetic or patriotic Nigerians
Welcome to Zamfara state,
A state of Peace and harmony
A place where stealing and Zîna are seen as felony
Welcome to Zamfara state
A world in another world
A place that can’t be expressed in words…

Zamfara State
Farming Is our pride

Ayomide d’great
