Touch Them Not - Poem by azeez sangwa

You know, you know they are unique
More than common people, they are special
They are useful, honoured people in town
A shilling's worth nothing compared to them
If you touch them, and the king hears, you die
Judge them not, and you will definitely survive

Have you ever heard of lion kings?
They fought for land before you were born.
Let you praise them, so do we
By the mouth of bad men, some were killed
Few survived, today we preach
They desired nothing but to free the land.

Something happened and made them known
For kids to believe, need to read them papers
For you to feel it, do the same
The enemy has gone, back in other name.
Could you do the same as what they did?
And the King shall order, you be touched not.

In JK times, ceremonies began
We commemorate them every year and then
Whatever they've suffered and done to obtain
Forever shall be respected with all the grace
See! today we enjoy the fruit of their pain
We shall therefore let them down, not ever again.
