They will weave a stirring tale of stout hearts
And tell of loud voices that dared to be harts
When bastard bullets ruled both day and night.
Shall we not tell our children’s children this tale;
Of how the Collar and the Turban did walk in pair.
And the Collar said to the Turban, “Do not despair
For together we shall occupy our land and prevail.”
Did not the Black dogs bite, and the bullets sting,
While their errant whips kissed our naked hides
Seeking to break the union of our married prides?
Yet we spoke till their ears did with our voice ring.
And the books shall not forget too, our brothers
That fell. May they find rest beyond these borders.
*Can we not come together as one and fight this menace of terrorism, religious tolerance and political division? Did we not come together to fight the TERRORISM that was displayed by our poliTRICKcians headed by GEJ during the fuel subsidy saga? Let us act now and save the future
