Crocodile Smiles &" Tear drops"




It was a gentle evening
Calm but mean
Voices were on the street
Calling for Justice & new dawn
For the land has turned 
To den of lions 
Before the strike of an end came 
Hurt the night
And silenced voices

The Monsters on uniform
And hefty booths
Armed to teeth
Appeared  in the dark
As the  light was seized to shine
Heartlessly pulled the trigger
That pierced through the pore of fresh body
Struck the innocent
Chanting Justice,  equity
Hugging  flag of three colours
Green, white and Green

The blood night,
Cursed the flag
The white, became red
Full colour, green, red and green
A kiss of sadness in the land
Everyone unhappy 
The street of Lekki reacts
The bloody paint really awful
The stains will never be washed

So  cold the blood
Goshed profusely as  souls
Hovered  in pain
Cried so loud
The voices so clear
The known voices
Of sons and daughters of the soil
Can this pain heals?
When recall the
Overpowered voices of the dying
As guns and bullets took up the chant
Tata Tata Tata, dum , dum 
As heads roll, kissing the soil in pain

The guns and bullets
Never rugged to enemy of the nation
But to the peaceful citizens
The blood of her own
Young in age, the leaders of tomorrow
Cut short, to feed blood thirst
Of the old fools

Today has come 
All  blood suckers must dance in the grave
The young shall lead
And dismantle the ghetto
For nations to trace their root 
And save their land 
To die no more by monsters
It's a call for new beginning
Youth, hug revolution

A poem dedicated to those massacred on 20/10/2020 at Lekki TollGate Peaceful protest for #EndSars
