Poet’s War

Chibok’s flagitious news
Gashed into moms’ wombs
Like a brine sharpened knife
Hemorrhage of grief

Well done! Boko boys
Bloody  cowards of asylum
Coming for the unarmed
Claiming victory in the bush

Our daughters must return
Final drop of tears today
Cremate the pleading placards
Drained are our knees

Where is your head, Shekau ?
Killing, maiming. and destroying
In the name of Allah
May you never taste his mercy

Free our sisters
Before this ink rains
Cursed blessings
Of undying hell
