I KNOW A COUNTRY…

I know a country, far far away,
whose land is very fertile,
yet its people starve.
Who is surrounded by the Atlantic,
yet its people have no running water.
Where leather is in abundance,
yet they import shoes and bags.
Where oil oozes out of its soil,
yet they import petrol.
This country has over 150million people,
yet they import a group of 10 “consultants”
to audit their oil accounts.
Where cocoa seeds are picked by toddlers,
yet they import chocolate
Who is renowned for internet fraud,
yet it does not have a decent internet connection.
I know a country, far far away.
