Victory - Poem by Njousi Abang

Yes, we have won the war
And taken away the booty
But can we count the environmental damage
The spiritual loss everywhere
And the destruction of a heritage
And a civilization that had stood the test of time?
What is reconstructed cannot bear the ancient flavour!
Nor can it bring back the dead
And remake those maimed!
However, one cannot make an
Omelet without breaking eggs
