Crocodile Smiles and Tear Drops By Onyebuchi Eucharia O 22nd October 2020 It was a gentle evening Calm but mean Voices were on the street Calling for Justice & new dawn For the land has turned To den of lions Before the strike of an end came Hurt the night And silenced voices The Monsters on uniform And hefty booths Armed to teeth Appeared in the dark As the light was seized to shine Heartlessly pulled the trigger That pierced through the pore of fresh body Struck the innocent Chanting Justice, equity Hugging flag of three colours Green, white and Green The blood night, Cursed the flag The white, became red Full colour, green, red and green A kiss of sadness in the land Everyone unhappy The street of Lekki reacts The bloody paint really awful The stains will never be washed So cold the blood Goshed profusely as souls Hovered in pain Cried so loud The voices so clear The known voices Of sons and daughters of the soil Can this pain heals? When recall the Overpowered voices of the dying As guns and bullets took up the chant Tata Tata Tata, dum , dum As heads roll, kissing the soil in pain The guns and bullets Never rugged to enemy of the nation But to the peaceful citizens The blood of her own Young in age, the leaders of tomorrow Cut short, to feed blood thirst Of the old fools Today has come All blood suckers must dance in the grave The young shall lead And dismantle the ghetto For nations to trace their root And save their land To die no more by monsters It's a call for new beginning Youth, hug revolution A poem dedicated to those massacred on 20/10/2020 at Lekki TollGate Peaceful protest for #EndSars Written by Onyebuchi Eucharia O. For Family Writers Press International.
