What do you think? Should I pick up my pen again???

I was at the embassy today and the crowd inspired me to write this while I was waiting, its my 1st poem in 10 years. I know I’m rusty and I wrote this in 15 minutes but what do you think? Should I pick up my pen again???

I may not be able to rhyme
At this point in time
But nevertheless im gonna give my dime
On the state of this clime

The chiefs plunder our resources with impunity
While the youth dance azonto with dexterity
And the rot continues with alacrity

What will our children think of us
When they ask for the source
Of the rot, and all we can do is gawk

The streets are littered with carnage
While prosperity is the gospel of the new age
And internet scam is the bane of this age

The crooks from Harvard
Are our dukes of hazard
While the homegrown students are laggards

The power is epileptic
The roads cataclysmic
And the economy apocalyptic

These words are my only weapon
To wake us from our snoozing
And prompt us to action
To save our dear Nation
