© Francis Maugo Help me understand; Why you want me back The arrogant and heartless Basis. Was I not your source of grief and nightmares? Was I not your bondage and source of oppression ? Help me understand; Why do you want me back? After all those series of torment, anguish And pain you inflicted on my younger heart. Was I not the the reason behind Your daily lamentations and wails? Help me understand; Are you giving up on your "religion" And "new form of worship"? What happened to your new "friends" That you constantly defended whenever You could be giving me fake affection? What happened to your constant "holy pilgrimages"? Do you want to tolerate sinning with The devil incarnate Basis? Help me understand; What came over you that made you To want to take me back? Was I not the arrogant and disgrace to you and Your new " heavenly compatriots"? Was I not the big threat to your brighter future? Was I not the the BA- and not  the BASIS you used to adore? Help me understand; Do you want to now kill me After maiming my heart? Was it not you who celebrated when I had to accept your divorce letter despite My tireless efforts to broker peace between us? Help me understand Was it not you and your belated fellow daughters of Jerusalem danced and jubilated  While drinking my blood that was gushing from My bleeding heart you had maimed? Help me understand; Are you on a mission to send me to the grave? Have you recruited enough "friends" To come with you and dance on my graveyard? Kindly help me understand Why do you want me back Oh poor me ? son of Maugo.
