Tanzania base

first_imgYour name sends a chillYour face sends a silent cold, traveling through spines, like needlesHidden under the enclaves of CARI,Deep in the bosom of Bong!When men, like chicks, ran to your arms for shelterYou opened a door, hid them under your feathersFrom the gnashing sounds of gunshots and stray bulletsBringing a relief, life was about to breathe again!In the darkest of dark,You pushed them out to the wolvesShut your hutsTook off your doorsDemolished your windowsUnmasked your faceAnd, like a coward, you fledOh Tanzania base! Why?You could have left us alone!Let the lions devour us then!Or, we would have buried ourselves alive!But you gave us hope, masked by terror!And left us out to dryWish your name could vanish like a dreamOh Tanzania base, you are a beast!Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
