Wandering Ghosts of the North


Hate! Hate!! They screamed

Marching through and destroying all values

In anger they touched our cities

A beautiful arson they perfected


The soothes settle on empty roads

A silent town of wandering ghosts

Ghosts of the hundreds killed

Their crimes nothing but fate


They angry ghosts of the north

Are left to wander forever

Rambling to themselves of in-justice

Silently, the world ignored them


(Written for the thousands of victims killed in Northern Nigeria

Under the guise of Religious “fanatism”)
