THE DARKROOM #WarOfWords6 by IBRAHIM ‘HAJI’ OLUWAROTIMI

I BLEED GREEN

I WAS BLINDFOLDED AND BEATEN BLUE BLACK.
MY BACK GOT SWOLLEN LIKE IV HAVE GOT AN HUNCHBACK.
SHACKLES ON MY LEGS, CHAINS AROUND MY NECK, MY MOUTH GOT SWOLLEN THAT I CANT TALK BACK.
I WAS VIOLENTLY SQUEEZED AND THROWN LIKE A PIECE OF PAPER INSIDE THE FOUR WALLS OF A DARK ROOM MEANT FOR KLEPTOMANIACS.

I NOTICED I WASN’T THE ONLY ONE INSIDE THIS DARKROOM.
COS I GOT A CELLY WHO UNTIED MY BLINDFOLD AND HE SAID WELCOME TO THE DOOM ROOM.
THE STENCH IN THIS ROOM WAS EXTREMELY NAUSEATING BROS
YOU’LL PREFER TO EMBRACE A SKUNK.

SKULLS WITH AND WITHOUT TEETH SMILE AT ME.
FEAR SAT ON MY HEAD SO CONFIDENTLY.
THE SHATTERED BONES ON THE GROUND DUMBFOUND ME.
I REMAINED SPELLBOUND AND LOST HONESTLY.
GPS IS GONNA LOSE TRACK SEARCHING FOR ME.

AN HORRIBLE PLACE MADE FOR US IN ORDER TO BE CONSUMED.
AN HORRIBLE PLACE MEANT FOR THE SEEKERS OF TRUTH BUT THEY WONT LET US LOOM.
WHENEVER YOU TRY TO EXHUME THE TRUTH
THESE SET OF PEOPLE DON’T MIND BURYING YOU WITH YOUR TRUTH, PLEASE DON’T ASSUME.

I ASKED MY CELLY IF HE’S AWARE OF THESE SET OF PEOPLE WHOSE GOT THEIR BRAINS WALKING BEHIND THEM.
GUESS WHAT HE SAID.
THE DOUBLE HORNED CORRUPTION,
THE ONE EYED TERRORISM AND THE BLOOD SUCKING TRIBALISM, THESE RING LEADERS ARE JUST PART OF THE OPTIONS.
THEY ARE POISED TO SEAL UP OUR REDEMPTION,
TERMINATING ANY SIGN OF FREEDOM.
THEY’VE BOUGHT THE WISE MEN IN THIS KINGDOM WITH A KOBO.
THESE WISE MEN WERE KNOWN TO BE PEACEMAKERS, YOU’LL LOVE THEM DIVULGE THEIR WORDS OF WISDOM.

OH DEAR, I CAN HEAR MY PEOPLE CRY BUT THEY ARE NOT HEARD.
MY PEOPLE ARE HUNGRY BUT THEY ARE NOT FED.
NOW LISTEN, AS LONG AS THIS GREEN FLUID KEEPS SWIMMING IN MY VEINS.
AS LONG AS THIS GREEN WHITE GREEN FLAG KEEPS GLIDING IN THE AIR LIKE AN AIRPLANE.

CORRUPTION, TERRORISM, TRIBALISM, NEPOTISM, FAVOURITISM, RACISM,
THIS KINGDOM IS TIRED OF YOUR NEGATIVE DOGMATISM.

ALL OF YOU, ALL OF YOU, YOUR DAYS ARE NUMBERED.
YOU’LL BE DEFEATED AND YOU’LL FADE AWAY FOREVER.
MY KINGDOM, WAKE UP WAKE UP FROM YOUR SLUMBER.
SOMETIMES YOU MIGHT NOT NEED TO BE COOL AS A CUCUMBER.

BUT BE REST ASSURED, I’LL MARCH BEHIND YOU LIKE SOLDIERS OF WAR.
IF THEY ARE LOKI, I’LL BE AS THOUGH AS THOR.
GREEN FLOWS IN MY BLOOD.
I WILL NEVER LET YOU FALL.

THIS NATION WILL BE FREE.
BY THE WILL OF GOD, CELLY, WE’LL LIVE TO TELL THE STORY.
OF HOW THIS COUNTRY EXTRAORDINARILY CELEBRATES ITS VICTORY.
CELLY, I BLEED GREEN.
WHAT DO YOU BLEED?
