What Name Do We Call Her?

What name do we call her?
A country that can’t see
Like a blind man
A country whose eyes are not blind
But could see her citizens suffer in anguish

What name do we call her?
When in those days our fathers suffered
In the hands of their lords
They served as servants
Where they were chosen
In the Ministry of Labour
The best candidates
Their mouths padlocked
Like prison doors
Which Peter’s prayer miraculously opened

What name do we call her?
A nation that supports kidnapping
School children a substitute for ransom
In the land that loves Western education

What name do we call her?
A country of juggernaut called leaders
The faitours of security
But leave self-defence to her citizens

What name do we call her?
A nation that frowns not on terrorism
But forgives and rehabilitates terrorists
Under the guise of amnesty

What name do we call her?
A nation whose symbol of authority
sucked blood like tie and dye cloths
In the year her citizens say:
No to bad governance
The youth killed like rams for sacrifice
Of what significance is our celebration?
When her symbol is soaked in blood
Do we celebrate IN OR
