or a perfectly drafted plan to take our lives?
A big game with invincible claws rolling the dice.
Don’t be deceived by what you read
Books are written by the same men who rule us.
A script, to which we act
a tune to which we dance.
You aren’t blind my love
U can see!
Where is the paradise I ask you?
We are being exploited, killed, Deprived of our human right…
Yet with garri in our bellies we smile.
Our country filled with milk and honey
has become the play ground for power hungry wolves
Our honey combs rendered empty
And our milk has turned sour
Our blood is the new wine
They hear our cries but wine and dine
Parents finding the dead remains of their children in large body of water like a pack of swine
Show me the paradise in us being brutalized, murdered and exploited
by those with whom we thought we would be protected.
Show me the paradise in organizing soldiers to kill innocent people fighting for peace in the land.
We only got tired of the secret killings
And now the killings ain’t so secret anymore!
You call this paradise?
Leave the books, leave the tv screen behind, leave the documentaries.. And look around u.
The paradise you know is history,
now we inhabit a world of misery and penury…
Look around you, What do u see?
3 square meals originally meant 3 meals in the morning, 3 at noon and 3 at night
We never knew!!!!!
Because eating 3 meals a day is even a struggle
1-0-1, 1-0-0, 0-0-1 is the matrix
No job is given freely, unless you bed the ladies
Milk and honey? Where? Hidden in your Mercedes?
Good food is now only gotten on occasions,
While they take their families away on vacations
Schools are another homes for exploitation
Hidden under the term ‘Education’
Certificates are nothing more than papers to sell bean cakes
Green white green has become the green light to steal from us
The permission to decieve us
And the approval to kill us
Paradise? Or not
