You taught our mothers to be loving and respectful,
You showed our fathers the pathways of hardwork,
Are these ones also from you??.
Why do their hearts rage against each other,
Why do they harbor hatred for each other,
Were children not meant to replicate their parents??.
Why have they restrained their feet from peace,
Did you not say to our parents “okpotimili nke rike,
Who stroke the sleeping dog??.
Why are they speaking different tongues?,
Why do they make you mourn?,
Just to shine their face they cause you to burn.
An eye for an eye,
Striking both the hyenas and sheep,
Your sanity have been defiled,
On who should we tag the blame??.
They have bitten their nose,
Inviting splitting of blood on their faces,
They plumb so gentle like wolves.
Their eyes have seen where they came from,
The have traded their thoughts for wine and dime,
Are these ones truly yours??.
Are these ones truly ufia??
No I don’t think so,
We have lost them.
