NATURAL LANGUAGE, Maiduguri

NATURAL LANGUAGE

The poem expresses the affection I had for Maiduguri, a place where I was brought up. But I miss it now due to the calamity that befalls the land.

The poem expresses the affection I had for Maiduguri, a place where I was brought up. But I miss it now due to the calamity that befalls the land.Daniel Singfuri Yohanna

Maiduguri, in those days admiring you
Is a music I loved,
You lift up my spirit,
Like medication to my soul.

I praise North East
Like the cherished rainbow
In the sky of Rivers,
A perfection to our country.

But now you bury
Your children & strangers
In the name
Boko Haram.

ABOUT LOOKS

It’s not about the ripped jean, Nor the red tie and the blue blazers. Rather, the need to put people in boxes, Like we are.
