COZY STEAMS OF DEATH By Adeyemo E. kàkàkíOgbón

Written by Bada Yusuf Amoo

“The blood of those people killed by the Fulani herdsmen are on the hands of the federal government and if nothing is done they will cry unto God”
The federal government was alerted on the threat of the herdsmen who had vowed to resist the anti- grazing bill enacted by the state government.” – Governor Ortom

Silence weeps aloud in somber streams
of red sorrow as blooming beauties are
butchered in bloody batters.
The beheading of glowing hibiscuses in nesh January
a replay of the black bloody streams in malignant lordships…
Silence of chosen messiah,
sudden dumbness of his ferocious sword at the brutal feast
of crude brethren on innocent sheepfold.

We have come to our bloody promised land
pious prophet has prophesied peace and prosperity
quietness now is the pragmatic finger of prophecies
at deleterious livelihood of “the beloveds”.

Let us hope!
To see silence
giving birth to heroic Beowulf.
