Ancient Curse By Ugochukwu Victory - The Isaac Somto Foundation

  • Ancient Curse By Ugochukwu Victory

    These theology of tranquility which everyone treasures
    Is the reason for treason and so much pressure
    Our rabbis and teachers preach of blessings forever more
    If the poor comply and honor their god of war

    Filled with hatred and envy, the steadfast shedding of blood
    Of those who are helpless, those who are hurt
    Legions are slaughtered for their so called "god"
    The guiltless are condemned, with no redemption at all

    Others take to suicide just to secure
    A spot in that land promised forever more
    Turning to beasts and hungry murderers
    They swear to follow their leader's very orders

    Any child brought to the mullah is taught to hate
    And told that it is its destiny, its divine fate
    They go ahead and spoil it's mental state
    Crying 'Allahu Akbar' becomes it's weary fate

    All these destructions, all these war
    All these killing and shedding of blood
    Is because we haven't yet been cured
    From our Ancient Curse, Religion.
