BORN OF TERROR- Nigeria’s Chibok Babies

BORN OF TERROR- Nigeria’s Chibok Babies

(A tribute to the 21 Chibok girls)

My sweet child of Terror

Product of evils untold and horror

Do you hear the crowd’s sigh and murmur?

Evoked by the protruding belly, inflicted by my captor


Sadness drowns the joys of return and reunion

Who would love the offspring of unholy communion?

Doomed to the world to be labeled spawn of devastation

Ought we to be better off with your father in perdition?

Than to endure the harsh stares of the world’s rejection

My child of many sorrows and affliction

Born of terror, destined for oblivion.
