Slay Kings? | by Adekunle Adewunmi

Fulani Herdsmen and Boko Haram’s killings is becoming unbecoming and getting to its peak. Conscious efforts need be made to allow peace reign in Nigeria irrespective of religious differences.

You pray?
We pray, I pray
To pray and prey.

But wait!
Why pray the prey
To prey
When peace can reign?

Again, I came
To raise the lame
To make the grain
And stop the game.

For in this game
No gain
In this way
Blood rains
We plead you end
The race to slay
And mute the cry
Of the slain.
