Boko Haram

I often wonder

Times without number

What desperation

What doctrination

Can undo a human

To extinguish the other man

And;

Sometimes,

Himself as well

.

Among this terrorist fold

Hardly a Christian you will find

But Muslims,

Ah yes – Muslims

Fiery bearded figures

causing tears and rigours.

.

In Nigeria, Boko Haram is the cloth they wear

In Afghanistan, Taliban is the designer label they flaunt

In Pakistan – Al Qaeda

What do we make of it?

Able bodied handsome young men

Intent on bile and ruin.

.

What tailor and material

Presided over the sewing of the garb

called Boko Haram?

Some say his name is ignorance

The sewing material – presidential elections.

.

They say some believe the presidency their birthright

When this belief was shattered

They prevailed on ignorance to sew a garb

And when the cloth was done

They wore it

And called it Boko Haram.
