The Oozing Democracy

In the drama “Tyrant” Season 3
Ahmed said,
“We kill each other and
We also bury each other”

In this life we are
There’ll always be differences_
People stepping on people toes
Leading to battle of strategies

While some wrestle loudly,
Silently,
Others checkmate their antagonists
With the believe that
It’s better to be haunted by ghost
Than haunted by a fellow human being

Whatever the case may be
Life is no duplicate
We all possess one chance to live

Humans should cease to prey humans
And the North and the East
And the West territories
Should voluntarily pick the ribbon of peace

Enough is enough!
All Northern Nigerian human mosquitos
Should Please!
Forgo terror for peace
For enough is enough of the killings

A local Newspaper headline
Boldly reads,
“901 Killed in Middle Belt Since January”

Ah!
901 human beings
Not fingerlings;
.

From lines 2-8, Senghor likens the name Naett to a host of natural breath-takers. Mind that he is not even praising the lady herself yet but only her name. In line 2, her name is like cinnamon, an aromatic spice and fragrance. He is a lover of the savannah, the African plains, and to him, her name is like it (line 4) when the African midday sun causes it to blossom…
