Letter to a tyrant.


by
Ephraim Nnawihe

You claim to be a boss to me 
And forcefully have your way in me 
I may be your assistant 
But please keep your distance 
I cant stand your uncivilized manner 
With all due respect sir''you are mad. 

You gain your way to the top 
But take away water from our cup 
Rendering people homeless gives you joy 
You can break or amend as though we are your toy 
With all due respect sir''you are wicked 

You know much well you cant earn our votes 
So you rig the polls and make us scapegoats 
You turn female graduates to prostitute 
You are a goodman that kills the truth 
With all due respect sir''you are a fraud 

I will bring transformation to our nation 
No nepotism,no discrimination 
But you loot our nation's treasures 
To satisfy your endless pleasures 
With all due respect sir''you are a thief. 

You claim to be a man of peace 
But kill our children,tear them piece by piece 
You spill our father's blood 
To prove..you are a lord 
With all due respect sir''you are an animal 

Time shall come when the earth shall speak 
Kill all those things that make you tick 
And then the trees shall ring the bells 
And birds of the earth your tale shall tell 
And the most feeble creature shall say to thee 
With all due respect sir''you are under arrest
