This Game Is No Longer Safe - Poem by john chizoba vincent

This game of killing is no longer
Safe in our heart of hearts.
This game of looting is no longer safe to
Hear in our society, change and change! !
We no longer dream of disposing innocent
Babies in the heaped dustbin in the street.

We are tired of lobbying and craving for our own
Selfish pocket when others are hungry and sad.
We are quiting from backbiting and bribery because
The eyes of the people are now on us breaking us.
We are sick of looking at the poor spread out in the streets because they seek help and future.

Help us find a way, this game is no long safe with us.
Tell those unfriendly friend that enough is enough,
Those who conquers, defeat and caged our soul
With evil that we can't come out from that the game, it is over between us, we can't continue with this.
Look not at us, emissaries of destruction; we are blind with the work you gave to us in the darkness.

You are giving us reasons to frown and brown,
This game of corruption is no long safe in our hands.
Enough is enough of this 'Yes sir' always!
Give us freedom to breath and bright!
Enough of this baberic act against our own people!

You that wears smile as if you are happy with us,
We are leaving this game to your dead hands.
You that rape our dignity and give us sorrow;
This game is no longer safe in our righteous hands.
We are breaking away, we are calling it quit now!
You that empty our stomachs to feed yours;
We can't do this job again, our conscience is against us.
