Oh look! Look right here and mark
What they’ve done to our Dike Park
Look at this pile, unsightly and stark
In all its ‘glory’ a decrepit shambles
A sordid result of decrepit gambles
And emblem of our mutilated dream.

Let us spy with a strangled scream
What a man with means in extreme
Has done in his mindless scheme
To a star of the intellectual cream
Buying out his honor for pittance
Because there was no resistance
From a town in divided existence.

They tossed him for a million Naira
And treated his honor as ephemera
Ignoring what he wrought in his era
To uplift Awka, Nigeria, even Africa.
They huddled in muddled assembly
To split funds from a man unfriendly
To our dream of honoring correctly
A son who lifted our flag so proudly.

Let us lift the fist of our community
And smack down this base atrocity
Let us lift Ken Dike’s academic gown
And find there the pride of our town
And finally dispel this fortune stalker
Far from our fair ‘n famed land, Awka.
