The Sun rises on this beauty,
PHRC; Nigeria’s largest oil refinery,
She sits majestic in Nigeria’s Delta
Once the pride of her father, And greatly revered by her brothers
Her gold flare made the children awe
And the sound of her bubbling made the communities rejoice.
Who has not heard of Great PHRC?
Of her resilient and dexterous staff
Who in their unity have kept her alive
Through her fiery furnace,
She made birds fly and horses race
Her produce traversed the Atlantic
Her commerce and modus operandi
Nations the knowledge sought.
Presidents, Governors, School Pupils,
She has seen them all
Miners sought her treasure
Her uncles plotted to marry her out,
Stripped of her birthright and left to bleed away,
Yet she stands with her shoulders high,
Ever ready to make her father proud.
The Sun shines on this beauty
PHRC; Nigeria’s largest oil refinery
For your shame shall be covered
Your birthright restored.
After your surgery,
You shall dish your produce
And will never be downtrodden
Because @MBuhari has spoken
And @MKKyari directs it
Your Sun shall shine again!
