Terror’s Dance Hall


Boom!

We scatter left and right
Then we arise furious and indignant
How dare bombs go off here?
Know they not who we are?

Boom! Boom!

Less noise now,
But still we condemn and castigate
Such ‘heinous acts’
This ‘Un-Nigerian’, ‘Alien’, ‘Unbelievable’.

Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!

Everyone is quiet now,
It is just another day,
Another blast
Another sacrifice of innocents

We are too numb to shout
Our voices are mute
In the senseless silence
We grope
And wonder
How?

How did the ‘Happiest Nation on Earth’
Become Terror’s Dance Hall?
