MASS MURDER OF BIAFRANS: MY SONOROUS ELEGY

MASS MURDER OF BIAFRANS: MY SONOROUS ELEGY

By Ifeanyi Chijioke
For Family Writers
  
Unarmed Biafran killed by Nig Military force
The dawn came, so promising and as fair as Potipher’s queen,
  
  A rousing day, we never dreamed our mass murder, we were keen,
  
  Keen to show our solidarity, bearing peace and law as our banner.
  
  The night had no stars nor moon but the dawn glimmered,
  
  With rising sun and its beauty, it gave us reason to be hopeful.
  
  Our beds we shall never lie again, neither had we any sign,
  
  We were going to lie in caskets till eternity, o! A cruel life.
  
  We never touched our wives, with hope many days lie ahead.
  
  We never bothered to have last sight of our kids or say goodbye.
  
  Who ever thought those soldiers would take away our lives,
  
  Even praying to God, we hoped miracle will save our lives.
  
  Surrendered by those murderous soldiers, we stared at our death,
  
  Bearing no arm, what can that red, black and green flag do?
  
  Nor can the rays of the rising sun on the flag blind their eyes?
  
  The hovering flags can’t defend us, so death was so real to us.
  
  Our hearts never seized, our fearful eyes pleadingly stared.
  
  Will they shoot us, will they kill us here we are calling upon God?
  
  Will God allow his children to die, isn’t he a living God?
  
  Questions invaded our minds as those vampires surrendered us.
  
  They neither drink our blood, they only spill it and beat their chest.
  
  We remembered our loved ones, kids, wives and our aspirations.
  
  Here seems to be the end of the road, their guns to transit us.
  
  Helplessly we waited for them, our heart beats intensified.
  
  Do not shoot us, please do not kill us, we never wished for death.
  
  This fair dawn should not rain blood on us, this dawn should never be.
  
  Though we never said all these to them but our eyes said it all.
  
  Raising Biafran flags higher and higher, if this dawn shall bring death,
  
  Let us die but let this flag fly for our death, let our death be not vain.
  
  Though we died without a shred of defence, we are not cowards.
  
  Yes we died without fighting back, we sacrificed for the living Biafrans.
  
  We are not sacrificial, we never wanted to die, we were murdered.
  
  but we are heroes, more important than the living.
  
  Though the dead have nothing to give, but we give everything.
  
  Our own were murdered, our blazing youths, fathers and mothers.
  
  We have taste death and have seen death, we have cuddled death.
  
  All for peace, all for whom we are, fearless before death.
  
  Can’t we kill, are we amputated, must sorrow always be ours?
  
  Even when we have embraced peace, peace seems to elude us.
  
  Where have we enjoyed peace? their souls can’t rest in peace.
  
  We are lions dying like fowls, we are lions bearing feathers.
  
  Death is our portion, silence is our portion, what good is our portion.
  
  We are good for death, why have thou conspired against kind Biafrans.
  
  We never avenged, we never revenged, we are imprisoned.
  
  Are we amputated, who told them we can’t pull a trigger?
  
  We only wait for follow human to help this fight, for it is monstrous.
  
  Have we been betrayed by those we wait to save us?
  
  O! Let UN avenge our death, let ICC control the monsters.
  
  Let EU take away death from us, let UK parliament bring antidote.
  
  Let world leaders hear our cry and value our existence.
  
  That Biafra may be restored to end the lamentations of the dead.
