When Two Elephants Fight

Standard

Nigerian MapI heard this saying when I was really young…I’m not that old either, but I have progressed steadily in the growth department for some years now, don’t let my looks deceive you… and it said “When two Elephants fight, the grass gets hurt.”

For the life of me, what prompted the Elephants to fight? Were they trying to share the forest and one laid claims to more lands than necessary, given the harvest his own end of the forest was bringing? OR Was it a case of wife-snatching? Just my ‘crazy’ mind doing what it knows best, thinking out loud, so as to hear another’s opinion. Not like I will take it o! But then who knows?

Thinking about it, are they not supposed to fight in a ring? Why on the poor grass? Who is their referee? Who organised the fight? All these ‘Whos’ you say, yes I need to know. What brought about the fight? Who stands to gain when the storm is over? Hmmm.

I have seen many DPs and appeal for and against the two main parties in the race. Some are really hilarious 🙂 and gets one thinking when all is said and done, what will we gain from all the bad-blood we have generated amongst ourselves. Why are we letting the Elephants use us to achieve their selfish/unselfish gains? If they are Men enough as they claim, let them speak for themselves. What do they REALLY have to offer us…we have had enough of bogus promises and no show. We’ve had enough of THREATS and actually TERROR. We want our GRASS back and GREEN the way it used to be before all of these madness (including those of years past). I think it is time the GRASS became slippery, so that by the time both Elephants fall and rise from fighting instead of focusing, they will acknowledge HER.

In the meanwhile, February 14th is on the way, what will your vote say? I rest my case…just for today anyway.
