RED RIVER by Efe Ogufere

God,
If thou be at all
Be a blade
Cut through it
This cape of injustice
Sober indifference
Let it flow
Blood-
Trickle into the earth
Threaten to form a rivulet
To
A mother’s tears,
Crystal and iridescent
A drop in an ocean of sand
Watch it grow
Diseased seeds-
Of terror and unrest
Dry, parched and-
Dying of thirst, we will all drown
For
Reckless abandon
To the-
Silent screams of-
Our womanhood lost in Chibok
