Boko Harem

In 

shallow

hollows

holy 

as the right to sing 

lullabies under an African sun

poverty nurses

fed up

anger

laid in ostrich nests

girls stolen

boys chosen

to feed poverty’s ache

clothed in terror’s

regime 

which 

when fed

grows

 til 20,000 dead

pay 

for 

Boko Harem’s 

hunger

shall i say it again ?

lullabies 

under an African sun

sung 

Sharia

holy 

hollows echo

shallow

in

Boko Harem

  1. I went to Africa three times for President Clinton in the nineties. We were send on a water, food and medicine mission. We try to help. I bury many kids and adults. If people saw the starvation. Wouldn’t allow government like the USA to spend 25% on war. We would feed the world. Concern, kindness and help. The way to understanding. Your poem is needed. People forget that some places in our world. Children are dying of starvation.
