Hell On Earth

Satan orders Eve to give Adam For humanity fades; there settles curse Curse on the land, on parents and generations Generations are victims of their innocence Innocence for ignoring their suffering Hell in Paradise For Cain kills Abel for jealousy Jealousy for disgust and endless wars Wars by colonizers over minerals Minerals remain uncontrolled Uncontrolled are the behaviors Hell in Africa For a man’s unwillingness to leave power Power that impedes fair elections Elections hindered by men of terror Terror directed to humans and nature Nature’s destroyed by stained humans Hell in Central Africa For no fear to remove rights claimers Daytime people pitilessly kill others Bloody is the land, no peace and no food Life is worthless, there are lots of screams Killing for power and minerals is blatant Satan lives in the DR Congo, for that’s hell Poem by Mugisho N Theophile
