It was not just a monumental mountain
It was an institution and a big fountain

When it comes to issues of development
We are talking of a monumental disaster

When it comes to policies and legacies, what a pity
It was an institution whose stamp is a cesspit

If ever there was a fountain of oppression
It was its untouchable sanctuary and idol

It was more of an error than an era
It was more of an abortion than an admin

Its hellish heroism bordered on hedonism
It had no placenta or place in Pan-Africanism

Its invincibility has fallen but not its insidiousness
For it was an institution of pollution and abomination
