HAD THEY KNOWN by Cynthea Ntui

Written by Editor

I watched them praise the devil
As they sowed their seeds,
Seeds they will come to know were evil
When it’s time to pay for their deeds;

I saw the agony in their movements
As they hoped and prayed for improvements
I saw the fear written on their faces
As the grasses once green, now grazed till they’re no more

I watched as harvest time drew near
As the farmers harvested the grains they sowed,
Had they known, they would have sown different seeds.
Had they known!
