Two weeks ago mayhem was unleashed on xtians in some Northern states in Nigeria in the name of a cartoon published in a Danish newspaper. A lot of people that did this havoc hardly can read anything written in English.
How comes....?

Hell came down,
Fury matched on street corners
Taking spritely walk
across our land

Blood, blood, blood
flowed like river
across our land.

A water-mark,
a pencil drawing,
arouse a bowl
filled with tatoo of hatred
emptied spitefully on us

Ignorance: an orphan
let loose on streets
to stump on innocents.

What dirge for our dead...
Mayhem of hatred,
Mayhem with hateful insignia

What song for this mourning...

-Emeka Chike Nwogu-

A good message; Emeka. It seems that, throughout the world at any time, some people look for an excuse to incite violence and, as you put it, mayhem. Love and peace to you,

Emeka, I had forgotten that Nigeria was your home. the stanza beginning "a water-mark" is concise and image-rich. will pray for peace and restoration. take care, Dawn

Ed, it takes some understanding and level of intelligence to interprete a cartoon like the one causing all the trouble in Nigeria.
To me some people are out for some mischieve. God help us.

If they can see a cartoon, then there is no need to read, though I wonder how long people will use this cartoon as a reason to spread hate & create violence...Ed
