SPURIOUS DEVELOPMENT

Monday, August 17, 2015



Ultra-modern stadia, high-rise hotels
Dual carriageways, exquisite official residences
The substance of many a governor's legacy
Are the insignia of spurious development
-
Concentrated in cities, servicing the rich
Eliciting accolades while creating avenues for graft
But unmindful of the grassroots, failing to alleviate poverty
Decaying in time, to leave us where we were
-
Call it motion without movement, call it assembling costume jewelry
Where the masses are not the focus
Where education, health, wealth creation are not prioritized
What is dubbed development is mere song and dance
