​Before the light goes off again…

By: Moshood Muhammed

In the yesteryears

peace traveled out

politicians couldn’t bail us

Nigerians suffered a huge loss

There was a great division

War of arms rented the air

Cries became a routinal sound

Sounds of bombs became musical tunes

Hues sweep across the whole land

Toddlers became men 

They fought to save the land 

The people 

Dealt a great blow

Drenched in blood  

Peaceful atmosphere turn moist 

Women shiver 

Men held coldly 

Young allay fear

Before the light goes off again…

Why should Nigerians maim Nigerians?

War isn’t just the way

Our people can’t be slained

Our peace cannot be bothered

Let’s give peace a chance!
