BOOM!

tears I wish we never shed. Now I move about in abject fear thinking am I next?

Seun Odukoya

That was the sound;

If only it wasn’t so loud

BOOM!

If only it had landed on bare ground,

And there had been nobody around

BOOM!

If only we as a people did our jobs well and proud

Did the right thing; not afraid of the crowd

BOOM!

If only we still had our consciences intact

Hadn’t sold it cheap to the real ratpack

BOOM!

Torn eardrums and battered corpes

The result? Abuja needs beefed up security!

BOOM!

Why now? Why not wait and see what happens next?

A simple case of medicine after death

BOOM!

But who cares? Life goes on! After a while, we’ll be quiet

Until the next one

and the next one

and the next

and the

and

BOOM!

And the tears will never. Stop.

Until we start.
