Just the other day
from up north
another senseless killing.
hundreds of people
Men women old and young
shattered dreams laid lifeless on the ground
Oh when will all these dark doom be over
The nation was thrown into mourning yet again.
Our government, seem unperturbed!
We were still in black raiment
Then the messenger of death
struck down south
with great inferno.
many lives burnt to ashes
People saw death
face to face
Nothing could be done.
O death where is thy sting
O LORD, where is your face
we cry for mercy.
In a week hundreds of homes
have been thrown into deep oceans of wailing
we raise our hands to thee o Father of light
let this darkness hovering over our land
enough of this anarchy and bloodshed.
