IN NIGERIA, TRUTH EQUALS HATE SPEECH.
Fulani herdsmen ostensibly foreign, according to their handlers,
Stealthily encircle a marked town,
Armed to the teeth with AK-47 assault rifles,
Proceed to mow down every moving object.
Survivors including pregnant women are raped,
Followed by an orgy of disembowelment,
Then looting of valuables,
Finalized by burning of residences.
Melting into the night in their Toyota Hilux pickups.
Provided by who?
You know the answer – their handlers.
Cattle herders do not need automobiles for their trade.
A carnage so savage that it is only publishable with an advisory.
If this is not genocide, what is?
The town’s crime – protesting crop damage by Fulani cows.
Survivors if any, describe the invaders,
As jihadist vandals, rapists, robbers,
And animals of the lowest order.
Their backers, instead of expressing remorse,
Label victims as purveyors of hate speech,
For expressing outrage at the murderers.
Wish that the victims were armed,
To express their death wish on the jihadists.
Only in Nigeria will a survivor of a heinous crime,
Be labeled a hater for lashing out at the perpetrators.
This anomalous gossamer, Nigeria, spun by Imperial Britain,
Must be dismantled for peace to reign.
Unless the Western powers enjoy human carnage,
As they enjoy the lions mauling antelopes on National Geographic Safari Specials.
