KENNETH OODEE – SONNET OF PAIN (KEN SARO-WIWA)

A black day for a black man, in a black nation

A black day for a soza boy with allegations

Fought for Justice and the law became his accusation

Fought for environmental sanity and political environmentalist became the pollution

Equality and Justice was his tradition

To the government, it was an abomination

He was peaceful, yet became the most wanted

1995, Abacha’s most haunted

He was brought to trial,

False testimonies by fake witnesses

He’s pen became he’s fate

As history saved the date

You can kill a messenger,

But can never kill the message

KENNETH OODEE – SONNET OF PAIN
