July 1st, 2014 – Hands Tied Our Blood Is Shed: Poem Dedicated To Boko Haram Attacks Victims In Nigeria

Hands Tied Our Blood Is Shed

The barbarians come in the thick of the night

And dare ever so brazen even in broad day light

They plunder

They slaughter

Exterminate our laughter

Finally taking leave with our precious daughter

Hands tied our blood is shed

At the Boko Haram Altar we are bled

For hands tied our blood is shed

We shall not be armed, the drunken dictator said

To defend ourselves, he will not allow

Though our guns are given to Tompolo and Shekau

Mercenaries armed by Nero lay us to waste

Off our farmlands we are displaced

What a treacherous state!

Hands tied we await our fate

Our blood shared on our leaders’ plates

As the government tanks driven by the bandits devastates

Hands tied we are inundated

Stand down, the order to the army… allow them be castrated

Let all their sons be conscripted

And their daughters, all violated

Today the devil be venerated


*Dedicated to all the victims of Chibok, Gamboru-Ngala, Mai Malari, Gwoza, and all other towns and villages. Dedicated to the abducted girls. Dedicated to all the farmers and traders of the north, defenseless and undefended. Dedicated to the victims of Abuja bombings that our half a billion dollars CCTV failed to protect. Dedicated to us.

  1. Brimah u made me cry so loud I can’t stop what the heck is going on with these stupid morons killing people like animal
    I can’t stand dis anymore.

  2. And Christians always scream about Christians being killed and are only BH victims How about these ones?. Jehovah witnesses?.

    • You don’t get it, do you?. What am trying to convey is Christians always say they are the victims of BH as if no others suffer from BH menace. When BH killed Muslims you turn the other way (still playing blame game). Exactly what Musa Sule is doing. In this picture, you don’t need PhD to figure these are dead Muslim victims of shekasheka and his gangsters. THEY ARE NOT JEHOVAH WITNESSES. THEY ARE MUSLIMS. Wise up

  3. someone kept a mad dog that bites people. one day the dog bites its owner. the owner showed people that the mad dog also bites him. so no one should blame him. link this story to amanda’ s comments

  4. Oh! God where are you? will you not save your own again? the helpless, the armless, your children called by your name. Oh God how long will you wait to see your children being slaughtered like chicken, Oh God show your self again like in the time of old. I am devastated and hopeless, oh! God.

  5. This is the fulfillment of word of God according to Matthew 24:7-12 ” 7-for nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there shall be famines, pestilences and earthquakes in divers places. 8-all these are the beginning of sorrows. 10-and then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11-and many false prophets shall arise, and shall deceive many.12-and because iniquity shall abound, the love of many wax cold” let us watch and pray.

  6. They heartless and evil destroying their fellow human being like flies, we can’t do anything than to watch, everyday for the thief one day for the owner, are they still Islam Terorrist? am very much sure that Allah’s judgement awaits their actions, but let all remember that we all are going to die one after the other, so you shall reap what you sow.
