The walls heard and turned deaf
Heaven swore never to bear witness
The sun saw and went weeping
Hands turned loads on peoples head.
Thou king has a foundation
Of his defecation on the thrown
The palace workers have choices
Who defines the calamity?
The ofor disappears
Another is caved
The throne is empty
King is on it.
The cock craws
The head turns a sacrifice.
People die ignorantly for known reason
Parrots nest, six feet below
In tears we celebrate
The undemocratic rule of abomination
To elucidate, a junta
A woman has eaten the anus of a fowl.
Ndi okenye, are silent.
