African Abattior - Poem by Restytuta Nalyazi

African Abattoir
For Rwanda it was
A genocide
So it was for the Israelites
No other name can do
Eh! Mm!
In Uganda North
It is a den of vagabond rebels
Yet in the 1980s
It was a guerrilla war
Weren’t trillions of lives claimed?
Apartheid played its role
Beauty scars of torture
Still linger in the physical minds
Mbu it checked the barbaric Africans
Ha! Zimbabwe
Starvation and inflation
Claims thousands by thousands in seconds
A better punishment
Why hinder western exploitation!
Tribal clash exhibited
Power thirst in Kenya
Exempting the candidates
Promoting hatred
West initiated hatred
Among the Congolese
Is visible in search of
The beautiful forests to benefit
Possession of oils in West Africa
Is the criminal offence
Tagged on the mass destruction
Breeding confusion of permanent hatred
Having contradicting skin colour
Claiming brotherhood of the Dark Continent
Occupying the oil infested north
Is fertile ground of religious war
To crush the descendants of Ishmael
