The Un-fought War

Written by Odimegwu Onwumere

I can hear the salvo.
All the people are grumbling.
All the cities are waking.
They are firing with misdeeds.
They are firing with AK 47.
They are firing with curses and abuses.

But I am firing with pen.
Pen of an embittered poet?
Pen of a rebel poet?
Pen of an unsung patriot?
Pen of a Child Rights activist?
Pen of an un-noticed author?
Pen of a hungry opulent fatherís child?
Pen of an uncelebrated citizen
who have been solemn in solitude?
Who have been rewarded with sacrilege?

Albeit, I did not initiate any war,
neither thinks there is war,
neither am I in war,
But is there no war?

My kins and kiths, siblings and survivors,
brothers and mothers, fathers and sisters,
all are fleeing the neighbourhood, all,
because of the danger ahead?

If nothing is done to stem
this inglorious hidden war
initiated by the practitioners of
the government for the people
and for the people
and by the people,
the Cold War will be defined
more than I can chronicle.

Anarchy is better been read,
than seen being practiced!

God bless all writers for they are the image of God.

When you insult a writer, you'er not doing the best for him.But when you correct him, you're a good friend.
Cheers !
