This one said +
That one said =
They all think (flawed formula 1)
They all think (so we all must) +
Actions of ignorance =
Tribal wars (dangerous formula 2)
Tribal wars = chaos + hurts + deaths
(Fatal formula arresting peace
…pushing royalty into servitude
…and rendering nationals refugees
…and or paupers)
They who are busy fighting off ants in clothes
Have no mind for a pride of lions
Aiming to shred them into pieces
In the same way
A little fire in dry hay unquenched
Just needs a little air to grow
So stop planting divisive thoughts in fertile ignorance
You sure won’t benefit from its harvest
We all live with prejudices
Ones we shed with learning
And or confrontations
So impose no few voices on a kingdom
Digging into foundations and seeking the collapse of a nation
Who digs a bottomless grave right around their lovers
By praying for their long lives?
How will the diggers climb out without ladders of safety?
The thing about finger pointing
Is the many fingers which point back
So plant no hate seedlings to mate chaotic thoughts
Forcing plants of murder on your own land
You won’t like the taste of its fruits
How can we soldier through global storms
In our divisive forms?
You’re busy fighting yourselves
On a battlefield of a bigger fear
Do you want to finish off your soldiers
And help crown your already strong opponents winners?
Whatever that is called on a football field?
And it will lead
…to us gobbled as servants
To shame the blood which poured for your freedom!
By all means let your voices be heard
But build no mountains out of a mud pot
Fight ethnic bigots in their individuality
But counter your ethnic lapses with education
…not intended war
We were before politics became
We will be the ones its mischievous nooses hang
If we keep tying hate baits in our bid to please power
Politics is no table to sustain your bizaar promotion
It can break anytime and render you a nothing
Let ears with working minds listen!
Let mouths with wise words work!
Let eyes with great directions lead!
Let hearts with great dreams move us
…to seek togetherness for the fight of growth
…on global stages
