“The World a Better Place”

Posted in Arts by KANERE on May 12, 2009

Volume 1, Issue 4-5 / March-April 2009

Boom! Boom!

It all went up,

Blood-curdling scream—

Piercing our lives–

Women running helter-skelter—

Children crying on their backs—

All trying to save the life.

Why all the fighting?

Why not say no to conflict?

Why? Why?

Warriors OYEEH!

Warriors OYEEH!

Today is the D-Day,

They have to live.
We want our land back

Even by the sword thugs have to live

They have to live!

They have to!

Warriors OYEEH!

Warriors OYEEH!

Another day, another night

Neighbours standing against each other

Carrying machetes and pangas.

Eyes are film killing each other

Merciless, grass painted red.

Oh! The world a better place

Where human beings belong.
