Security Where Are You?

Security Where Are You?
Each day Agatu drops like wild beasts
Under your watchful-eyes of National justice
He’s a prey in his own land
And he cries blood, sighs tears
And you get rid of his human garment of rights!

Security where are you?
Why do you shut your door of sentinel?
Why do you pretend to be deaf and blind?
My Tiv friend is here too,
Wailing at Guma-homeless!
Look at him, blessed leaders with justice
Can’t you see him drowning in the sea of his own blood?

The helpless child is here
Swimming in River Benue of pains
For he knows no sleep-no food
But a salutation of a insipid life
Crying blood each minute of the day.

Herdsmen’s Annex
Enough of this cruelty
Turning a deaf ear to peace talk
Turning a blind eye to a bluebird of love
While slaughtering of the Tiv glows.
