Things fall apart,

Our brother breaks our hearts,

We were tolled to a dark path,

A path of destruction and violence

We grieved the soul that lost in world of silence.

The shivers in scorching sun,

Won’t stop when you call me a brother and still thirst for my blood

Things fall apart,

The central pillar is not intact.

Our shepherds turn up to be serpents,

Stinging and defiling our mindsets.

There is nothing left of our pride and heritage,

All have been exchanged with a foreign wage,

Aliens are more cherished than indigenes,

Brotherly love is lost in our genes.

Things fall apart,

The ribs of the young and old,

Squash just as crumbled leaves.

Don’t tell me lions are most carnivores’ animals,

Humans are most!

Don’t you see how they eat their spiced fellow being?

Famine smiles and winks at us.

There’s no grain that would satisfy the belly any longer.

Man fights their survival,

So they don’t die after the trial.

Things fall apart,

Our cries have no more impact,

Deafened are the ears of the so called democrat,

To whom we sacrificed our last coin,

They’ve taken their part and now feed us with loin,

They leave us blindfolded with no blink of hope.

The land of honey we sought for has been deserted,

We’re lost in the pool of frustration,

Mothers and fathers cry for their children’s fate,

They are scared that their toils over them don’t be a waste.

The myopic eyes of the government cannot see the miserable events.

All they care for is their pot belly,

The belly they pamper with Goat meat, pepper soup and five beer bottles.

It’s not all,

They embezzle the funds,

Meant to feed thousands of people during the general lock down;

People who have crawled their feet to

Highways in their torn wrappers and in bleeding eyes.

Things are falling apart.
