As the speakers sound
Loudly at 4am and the
Churches beam with drums,
Tamborines, songs of worship,
We hope for a calm good day
But like always, robbers
Prepare for their escapades
Call on minds of vulnerables
And needy and sorrowful
Can we talk of the
Cunning tricksters, whose carvings
Beat minds of sages?
Ah! If you don’t know, then you
Have never been their victim
Would we leave out the
Planning murderers Who zap
Lives they cannot give?
Even tears of the short lived
Cry to harm our peaceful air
And the others follow
I will say, a pox on you!
You whose thoughts would break
Hell today and make history
Stain with gumptions on the clear
