HARMATTAN  RESCUE

Embrace impact,
Slower the thinker,
History is stigma.

Sleep not deeper
Join me in commissioning
‘Operation Boko Haram extinguisher’.

Over the night our girls
Might never return.
Courage beats fear,
Sweat for peace or
Bleed at war.

Call time a ghost,
Time to extinguish Boko Haram
Including her host.

Immediate cultivation of
Nationalistic seeds through the
North, Africa and beyond.

Improve dreams of me,
And fatherless playing naked
Underneath Sambisa’s leaves.

With equal sacrifice
Authority doesn’t involve guns,
Camouflage protects love, as
Civilization and conscience
Seasonally evolve.

-HABIB  AKEWUSOLA
