As Agitatedly and outspoken as it is
It can never describe scenes have seen
Those have read or those have heard
Throng killed in bomb blast
Scores matcheted by northern herdsmen
Many injured
I try to write but my word won’t match the gruesome pictures
Of field of crops fertilised by innocent bloods
Hundred of innocent girls many in stage of misuse abuse and reuse
Some of encomium beauty turn
Maidens wearing bomb blast like jewel
Choiceless, forcibly hurried to their early grave
They rode to heaven that will never for them, as promised, be
On a trudging acrimious Croc, brought from Hades.
Just the other day a woman at the top of her voice screamed in frenzy
She had read ” a Tanker explode on Otedola bridge”
Just few hours her husband said he with the kids were held up on the bridge.
