ON HOLY GROUNDS (For Uwa and all rape victims)

She went to church
She always went to church
And they saw it
…deemed it fit to lurk
And went berserk
Thrusting into her temple in a temple
Hitting her hard where it hurts
Killing her soul before her body
Fearing not the presence of God

II
When the news broke
Men with sticks who must use their pricks
…to whip other sticks acting ticking bombs
On shes
…develop ways of blame on a human turned ghost
Too bad ghosts have no human ears to listen
…and no human bodies to bow in thanksgiving

III
One says she acted like an over-competent ostrich
…by reading in a church
Did she not know only Bibles are read there?
…Number-One-Reading-Police
… Massa well done o!

IIIb
Another asserts she was like a greedy snake
…curling and blocking instead of giving in to harmless penetrations
Ofui mu Mafia! Oga Mumu!
ayekoo o!

IIIc
One opines she was acting professorial than her future professors
…what kind of ingenious Einsteinic formulas was she prepping
…to bless this world?
Ampɛ-Edu-Mu-Cocoa-Krachi
…take salute!

IIId
One likened her to a sneaky fornicator
Forming stories of her lover gone bad
Blaming her for her death
Nobel-Prize-For-Best-Gossip-Writers-Winner
…I prostrate give you!

IIIe
A tonoo also claims rape is not complicated
…common penetration can’t cause death
He calls her stupid, who struggles
…when she knows she’ll lose
Head-Scientist-Of-Vaginal-Anatomy-In-Charge-Of-Strength
…a monster in a parody of a male human
…I award you with the Most Stupid Certificate of the Century

IIIf
One poured out his past
…filled with forcefully taking tokens
…from the waist beads of his innocent victims
…until a Woman-Pass-Man beat him up
…and a Mouth-Pass-Sword cursed him dry
Shameless-King-Of-Rapists
…300 gun salutes in your chest o!

IIIg
One is bold to swear allegiance
…to rape
Saying he go dey rape dey go
…noting go do him
A-Foolish-Beast-With-No-Brains
…God punish you!

IV
That there was no shame in their ink
Not many rebukes for their obvious links
Just lame condoners
Probably some more connivers
Means beasts walk among men
…and tower
All silent beings are part of the plot

V
I’m ashamed of you!
You who think a rapist deserves a flesh
…from his victim!
I’m disgusted by you!
You who give trauma to many with honour!
You all make me sick!
You monsters walking in human fleshes
Female backing vocalists are the worst!
Rape is murder of a woman’s soul
So walk not with your heads held high
You’re all murderers
…protected by a system of rot!

VI
If there is power in death
Haunt them out of their holes with madness
…leading to death dear Uwa!
If there is strength in a ghost
…give them no peace to eat another morsel dear Uwa!
Fighting in fleshes are humans who understand
…the trauma that led to your death
So before you rest, pay them with unrest
Until they join the school of death
…where you’ll be their class prefect

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
