RAPE
You shall know no sleep Happiness and calmness Shall despise that clot in your ribs That house you smeared with my blood You shall live to explain your actions in abyss

RAPE

By Aslam Bamba, Tamale, Ghana

How could they have missed God’s eyes?

Didn’t they feel shy or fear in His presence

Or they sold it to the dogs in that sacred house

They robbed me of my dignity

They were penchant

On seeing their desires smile

Rather than being remorse for their past

How could they not have seen?

A sister in me

A mother or an aunt

Why so adamant you were

To execute your sinful mission

Even if my back

Could have been laid

Outside that sacred house

For you to trample on

With your cursed soles

That could have lessen the bitterness in me

Then why take all my belongings

Including my ticket to exist

How are you so ungrateful?

While I’m away

You shall know no sleep

Happiness and calmness

Shall despise that clot in your ribs

That house you smeared with my blood

You shall live to explain your actions in abyss
