When we pray for the flood gate of blessings
We definitely don’t mean from the Bagre Dam
And we sure don’t mean excessive rains from the heavens
So why is a threat sitting close and causing us to fret
…through fear sweats
As thinking heads worklessly work
Towards decisionless decisions?
Do we need to spell the effects of these spillages
With lives lost
In order to school leaders to get the formula of loss?
Are eyes not working in the working sockets
…of leaders tasked to protect the nation
We’ll sit with Burkina like rivals
Staying in the same house
Sharing the same man
And accusing eachother of heartaches as our children die of hunger and blows from our fight
If diplomacy is not given a serious order
Don’t we see both countries acting like babies
Crying their losses at the one problem?
Human lives are not Christmas chickens!
See fear clouding the sky of settlers
When the flood gate opens
But find the cure to the tension which is injuring
…and killing not only our people
But the cordiality which exist
…between two nations
