The Slain Corps - Poem by Bamisaye Adeniran

Uncontrollable tears flow from the eyes of all
The heart is weak and sorrow has claimed the lord
The hope of an aged widow has been seized by the wicked
All in the name of unreasonable ideologies.

Why have you thrown the helpless widow into darkness?
Why have you chosen to suffer the innocent
The hope of the aged one
This is cruel act and a senseless.

When the fruit of her long lasting labor was almost over
You’ve gone too far, two pillars in the same building.
The heart of the helpless is against you
And the soul of the aged is against you.
