WHO IS SORRY FOR? (A Poem) by Gabriel B. I. Agema

Sorry is not for the government

It was Sokoto, Bakassi, Zaki Biam

now I feel like it is Boko Haram as we all bear the torment

 

Sorry is not for the government,

if Boko Haram turns us all to be like a farm

where all animals are damned.

 

Sorry is not for the government

since they allow it to repeat again

leaving us searching for the (in)sane

 

Sorry is not for the government

when it is said to the outsider

but not to the insider.

 

I say it again even as I cry:

Sorry is not for the government who lie

who wait to watch people die

 

Sorry is for me and you

as we choose to watch things repeat,

and never do anything about it.
