PAINS UNTOLD


The tale was heard of Mary and Zainab
Yet it was not published; it was not told.
The tale was heard of Ekondu and Agatha
To tell BABA, no one is bold.

While Agatha was raped and murdered in pain
Ekondu was forced to watch as they took turn.
What a world! What a nation!
She was not spared even after the deed is done.

To the herdsmen they killed a woman
To Ekondu, they killed his wife.
And he was powerless; He could do nothing.
Tied, he was made to watch as they took her life.

The story was not told of Mary and Zainab
Two sisters butchered after been raped.
What a world! What a nation!
Their pride and privacy was forcefully raked.

Who will tell BABA; who is man enough
Tell him we are tired of this menace.
These series of murder commited by his tribesmen
If not curbed, might end up in a book written by Guinness

We believed he was the man to liberate us
A reason we voted him despite his old age.
We believed he was the emancipator we've all prayed
Tell him to prove it; tell him we need a positive change.

We are tired of everything, we have no other home.
We are tired of seeing beautiful faces
Maltreated and deprived of their pride.
Tell him we are tired of hearing and publishing rape cases...
