POEM: Gory Of Bloodshed

Published

on

By Mai-nasara Muawiya Uzairu

Shedding of impeccable soul blood
by the drainage of a nation
before the lenses and retina of
those on the corridor of power
who profess and vow to shield
and fence our lives.

Thread bare Citizens were stoned
underaged deflowered inhumaneness,
children coerced to be
orphans. For a price they would
never pay.

Properties disappear to the air
where good personalities
of goodwill and blessed memories
sacrificed breath
for the eyes that cannot see them.

Why would blood not spill?
in a Nation where toddlers
fight for three square meals
North blames South
West blames East
over their failures and misfortunes.

Let everyone drop their sword
guns and ammunitions disposed
for stability to reincarnate itself
for those whose ethnicities
are still barren land.
