Bemoan the Caged Country

We tell ourselves such lies

With keen religious zest

That we love so much peace

Yet justice has no place

We kill with such rage

The marked prey at the Stakes

Fathers order blood sports

Sons execute at the forte

Without compassion we watch

As Mothers strike the erring match

That set the “innocent” ablaze

We exact torture that amaze

Our values all warped

A nation gone awry

The Pastor told the forbidden truth

Violence is our normal meal

Our accursed lovers, selfishness and greed

Seasoned lies and deceit

It is our nature to heed no pleas

Slaughter our own with vicious glee

Burn victims without reproves

We have no time for full truths

Our evil is so bullet-proof

kill the innocent

Hail the guilty

Is This not our civil chant?

Corruption our demonic god

Money our reigning over-lord

Cry the polluted land

Bemoan the caged country

Primitive brutality has stained our tears

Our self inflicted wounds are real

“Damirifa due due”

Buried heroes in the ground

“Damirifa due due due”

Elevated souls in heavenly skies

Captain Max, our murdered ‘star’

Rest Peacefully in your makers love

Salute to Capt. Maxwell Mahama.
