Rwanda - Poem by Abayomi Habib


Blood! Blood! Flows like river,
human beings slaughtered like chicken,
Dead coffins keep dancing on the street,
They killed our mothers and and raped our girls giving them bastards,
Rwanda is where the clock of the sun was turned upside down,
smokings killers at gunpoint stole our diamonds,
the devil in their mind killed our tomorow,
They made us look like ants,
In their coward act, they cleansed the hutu's,
they break our backs and brainwashed our soul,
where the bones cannot rise again,
Ten million dead in genocide,
where the bones cannot rise again,
unbreakable is our name and love is the chain the bind us together,
Goodbye to the shores of the smelling refugees,
hunger was our brother and rags was our clothes,
sorry was not in their dictionary,
and so the war ended in a stage of absurd,
but the secret of our tears cannot be forgotten,
that our heroism is the language that cannot be sold.
