The Slaughter Of The Innocent - Poem by Tony Adah

I want to weep sorely
Not to the world
But that God will hear;
My wails and weeping have found
No place in man's ears
There's a grimace
On the face of the pained
Still they hide it
With a veil of all is well.
Before the world forgets me
I'll wail and cry and weep
Why should man be so inhumane to man?
To slaughter the innocent
And wear gallands of triumphance
When the men who kindle the embers
Of this hate
Are the same men who are paid
To perfunctorily stop the war
And the call it Boko Haram
The war of invisible army
And no one to negotiate with.
I will continue to weep
Until the world gives me
A one man dump
To eternally rest
And hear no more
Of the injustice of the perpetrators.

    too much pain brought by war
    on the other side so much
    money to be made out of it
