ANIMALS IN BLACK UNIFORM By Zenny Lawls

Written by Editor

They are everywhere,
With their glowing eyes and shinning spear.
They are everywhere,
Ready to cut, drag and tear.

Animals in black uniform I call them,
They are no different from hyenas and wolfs in the forest,
Tearing at young lives just to fill their pockets,
With out so called leaders watching with no care.

The youths can no longer move freely in their fatherland,
Because this so called animals will always find a prey to take down,
The youths no longer enjoy freedom,
Because men in Black claim to be doing their job well.

We need freedom!
We want justice!
Enough of men in Black!
They wreck more havoc than saving lives.
