The Oozing Democracy

In the drama “Tyrant” Season 3
Ahmed said,

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,

Whatever the case may be

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;
