A SALLAH RAM’S TEARS (by Uchechukwu Ekwurekwu Obiakor)

A Sallah Ram's Tears

A Sallah Ram’s Tears

I was held by throat
And led
To the slaughter slab,
With a slap on my back!

“Mee! Mee! Mee!”
I cried out loud
But tears won’t come!
I know, it’s finished!

I was bound,
Hands and legs.
And the serrated cutlass
Shone on my face.

My stubbornness fled.
Alas, a blow will end it all
And little Ibrahim
Will lick my bones!
