After The War - Poem by Masereka Amos

After the war
I heard a third last sound of explosions
Later that I heard a boisterous laughter
I sensed their bullet was successful
I firstly heard a sound of a helicopter
And then saw a parachute coming towards us
I knew this was our Lt General
And was come to release the slaves
We knew how refugee camp peace programs
Would contribute to post-conflict peace building strategies
But was shocked by the calm revenge and destruction
Of all the properties, love, faith and all children we had
Better we all join hands and battle away this war within us
