(sharp dagger in nimbo enugu state)

Sharp dagger appears like
a dreaded arrow
Pierce through the pole
Of a healthy body
and thrust it beyond repair

A killer's hand
Penetrated in the shadow
gripped the dagger,
Struck down the helpless victim

I am the victim
Slaughtered like a cow
Flow of blood everywhere
In the street and at home
In the place of worship and in the farmland
I am concerned for the future
Blood keep on flowing

Man is no longer man
Man has become a vulture
A beast in human form
A vampire in disguise

l have been killed by the wild beast
Pierced by cruel sharp dagger
Now trapped in his cage of death

My neck peeled off, was a gift for agony
Yes,  l had no saviour,
What l saw, was a masked man in uniform
I was not saved
In my own land
Where l hid against the sharp dagger

Yet, trapped by the arrow
Very early in the morning
When he appeared like a mad dog
Thirsty for my blood.

Sharp dagger! Sharp dagger!
You are my mortal enemy
But why were you ever on my land?
Why can't you let be of my land?
And let it be forever...!
