Poem of the Year

PEACEMAKER

By: Jonathan Tafreg


Keep preaching your peace,

While people are fighting war,

One thing you don’t understand.


You want holy kiss,

Your mouth full of neither nor,

This too you don’t understand.


Your belly don’t miss,

You want us to suffer more,

But still you don’t understand.

I got a family doctor, family lawyer
I got a family pastor, family driver
I thought I got some friends – O Lord!
I thought I got some friends.
 
I got a family house, family farm
I got a family name, family members
I thought I got some friends – O Lord!
I thought I got some friends.
 
But now that my pillar is down
An orphan is my new name
My relatives and friends, are gazing at me
When I bow down they take everything – O My Lord!
 
Cover me O Mighty Lord
Cover me with the Blood of Jesus Christ
Those I guarantee to be my lifetime friends
Are now my enemies
 
O Mighty Lord! Be on my side
Those said to be friends
Are indeed Parasites!
