RED RIVER

God,

If thou be at all

Be a blade

Cut through it

This cape of injustice

Sober indifference

Let it flow

Blood-

Trickle into the earth

Threaten to form a rivulet

To

A mother’s tears,

Crystal and iridescent

One drop in an ocean of sand

Watch it grow

Diseased seeds-

Of terror and unrest

Dry, parched and-

Dying of thirst, we will all drown

For

Reckless abandon

To the-

Silent screams of-

Our womanhood lost in Chibok

– Efe OGUFERE
