KIDNAPPING IN THE NORTH By Elvince Aimar Makaveli

Written by Editor

Fear fall upon the youths,
Parents have been scared for moths,
No peace in the streets,
For it’s a forceful abduction without sweets.

Politics matters most than the lived of the kids,
The security only play to be the government snipers,
Only to be congratulated for their good deeds,
But care less about the kidnappers.

What about the Lil girls been abducted?
That suffers in the hands of the unknown?
Raped without mercy till they’re brought down,
Why can’t their lives be protected?

Despite all this kind of poverty,
Parents are asked to ransom their own kids,
Where’s the peace and liberty?
Teenagers are flooding in the streets for lack of basic needs.

Why are you giving the kidnappers advantage?
What’s wrong with the security at large?
It’s high time you wake up from sleeping,
For this ain’t peace keeping.

The government to provide food for the poor,
Evacuate the street’s floor,
Buy residing the homeless,
Create jobs to keep busy the youths whom are hopeless.

Educate the security to be alert,
For parent are afraid to be apart
From their kids because of this issues,
Please help the society fight these child abuse.
