Never Again - Poem by Tony Adah
The scorch sahel saluted the general
With undulating smiles
And the king got a lowly obeisance
From the herbage
The hills mopped a pool of still tears
From their eyes.
Soldiers echo a victory song
Against the terrorists
And the citizens joined
For their shackles that have been unbound
The armoury hummed and the bugle blared
A new song is voluntarily
Leaving the lips of soldiers
And their mutinous grumble dry in the air
A new leaf is turned
And they have harvested bravery
To become heroes of today.
They sang and they danced
In their never again song
Never again will anyone murder harmless citizens
Or capture innocent girls
For religion or politics
The twins that ought to build a nation.
