The headache has become a brain tumour.
Now it shows.
I see, and you see
Great abysmal monks in an abbot of a bush
Effortfully breaking rules, adopting girls for pleasure
Reeking of self-loath and awakening poignant fears
In wombs and abdomens of earthly human makers
All in the name of faith and selfish desires.
Could it be Chinua Achebe foresaw?
“Things fall apart, the centre cannot hold”
Yes, things are falling apart
And the centre’s hands have been severed.
How can beings take lives of fellow beings without knowing how to form human blood?
How can faith force one to impose his ideals on the other?
Are some people created with two or more brains?
What makes them think theirs are superior?
Hiding and insulting
Hiding and warning
Bombing and blasting
Training and abducting
More bombings and warnings
We want none of these
Brave men hide not!
Egalitarianism is what we crave for
When will God, in whose name many of these atrocities are caused
Open His mouth?
When will He verify what He made His prophets write?
When will He let us know what is good and what is bad?
Seeing as we have lost all reasoning.
When will reasoning dawn on disgruntled worshippers
That this world belongs not to them?
You can throw the world away
If you fit not
Lose your soul instead of taking souls you cannot account for
The world will be a better place without killers
Even children know that
I might sound bitter
But desperation forces words out of dull mouths
Please let the world be.
