The Rape of a Nation


Written by Ifeani Enoch Onuoha


 The Rape of a Nation 

She was brutally raped
By beasts in human form.

They came in armored vehicles
With tinted glasses
And official plate numbers.

Some wore agbada, etibo and designer suit.

They deceived her with their sweet tongues
Telling her they want to show her love
And she opened her door
And welcomed them.

They pounced on her
And raped her one by one
Without mercy.

They downloaded their venom into her
Alas! She is pregnant
Oh! What a mess.

A beauty queen can't walk head high again
Because of shame.

She sights a group of ladies
Some in low cut hair
Some covered their hair with gele
And wore native attires
They are mothers and nurturers she thought
But they were civilized murderers.

The murderers feast and party with the beasts
Instead of coming to save her.
They mock her with their scholarship in queens english.

Her belly is fastly protruding
What will she deliver?
A combination of corruption, injustice, abuse of power and greed.

We must save her now or face doom
Let's give her anti-retrovirals
And save her baby
From the disease of the fathers
She needs holistic recovery.

Next time she must put on iron pant and be mindful who she opens her door for.
