Country Hard

For we country
People dey hungry
Even with the hunger, we still dey hustle
This hustle na with bustle
To fit see chop money
Instead we meet agony
Our government get nob
But nob no bring job
So we guys go Libya as strugglers
But dem jam smugglers

Country na like jungle
After all the hustle
We no go see light
Instead na fight we go meet
We youth go school
But strike make them old school
Na survive we wan survive
So we gats to thrive
Even though say e no easy
We believe say e go breezy.

Night don come
Tomorrow go still come
Still bustle no pay hustle
God, when you go bless my hustle?
Because me don tire
Na money me wan acquire
Make mama fit happy
Because the woman dey unhappy.
Me too warn born pikin
But country hardship go burn napkin.

    I like the Pidgin flow and firm hold on rhythm. You used some figures of speech… Good.

    The punctuation was off. “It is better not to use it at all than misuse it” work on that…
