Tigray

(by Jerusalem, A poem of frustration, 06 March 2021) –

What evidence?

People of the world
You know the war isn’t law enforcement
But destroying Tigray causing displacement
More than 60 thousand have fled
over 50 thousand are dead
god knows how many detained
we know 100s of priests are shot even our nuns are raped
sheiks or imams catholic or Coptic no one seems to be spared
sacred monasteries ancient mosque is destroyed
our religious relics all looted
To commit this heinous crime UAE drones were deployed
Our livestock are stolen our people are uprooted

What more evidence?

Heavy weapons, artilleries, battalions, regiments
All have descended on Tigray
Nothing is left, bombs rained up high from the sky
The toxins are sprayed our land will soon dry
The climate change activists why are not shouting with us why

What more?
The land is contaminated for long it will not even grow grass
the poison will stay in the soil for generation not only with us
there is no oxygen to breath, air smells of decomposed corpses
there are rumours we hear they might have used even nerve gases

But there is no one telling the story
surviving Tigrayans are heartbroken they are distraught and fury
Where is the news anyone is reporting?
where is the speedy act UN is taking? where?

media of the world What more evidence are you asking
Our factories are gone our food crops are burning
The leaders of the world help us we are waiting
The crimes are unprecedented the war is still looming
Genocide is the on menu Ably and Esaias are eating
If you don’t stop this war, crime to humanity is continuing
No hospitals for the injured no prayers for the dying
Tigray has never seen this before
the atrocities are overwhelming

if you don’t pressurise to send assistance
no point of telephone call or a twitter from a distance
don’t you remember Bosnia war
or the Rwanda one’s world ignore?
it is genocide that is declared have you not learnt from before

We want you to speed up these criminal’s departure
Are you still believing Ably is needing more time to nurture?

What evidence are you asking?
The EDF, Eritrean soldiers are in our land
They are shooting looting murdering anything that can stand

they are killing everyday roaming house to house
they have raped young girls, our mothers our sisters and our cousins
when they wish as a group or forcing incest acts
these are depraved aliens who have no moral compasses
there is no evidence they have brain no sign they are humans

What more?
Tigrayans are living in a slaughter house of horror
Town and villages filled with bodies thrown like a litter
besieged and encircled in their own land by state sponsored invader
Survivors are dying with hunger
Time is running out for our people
Enemies are killing forever
Tigray is flooded with blood river

What more do you want the bullets are raining
Artilleries gun shots heavy weapons are deafening

No phone lines to talk to family,
No banks to send money
survivors are living in fear in anguish also anger
what evidence are you asking to help those in danger?
what more?

We have appealed to UN, EU, World Bank and AU
What is it you are waiting what evidence can we give you?
If UN cannot help if EU cannot push
If world Bank cannot act AU bits round the bush
What chance do we have, but our people will perish?

if you don’t pressurise to send assistance
no point of telephone call or a twitter from a distance.
don’t you remember Bosnia war
or the Rwanda one’s world ignore?
it is genocide that is declared have you not learnt from before?
Please send Tigray food humanitarian assistance
No point of telephone call or twitter from a distance.

We have appealed to UN, EU, World Bank and AU
What is it you are waiting what evidence can we give you?
