A Poem: By Aldo Wol Makuei, CANADA, 25/MAR/2018, SSN;
Don’t be a damn fool
Are you dead?
Are you a tribalistic?
If not, so Wake up!
If you don’t make use of your brain wisely
Tribalism will use it for you with disgrace.
If you can’t handle the cargo of your life cleverly
Tribalism will handle it for you with embarrassment.
Tribalism will handle you and drive your brain into savagery
Tribalism will drive your savage brain into destruction.
Tribalism will drive you into the grave
Tribalism will drive you into the Kingdom of Doom.
And if you are brainless enough to drive your life
Tribalism will drive you with a one-way first-class ticket without delay to hell.
I am not trying to insult you
I am just trying to get you think today.
You can’t just lay in the coffin satisfying with this death
You think everything is all right.
Don’t be so dumb and numb
Your thinking is in turmoil.
Just take a look around you
Can’t you see what is going on around you?
We have been butchering ourselves for so long
After being colonized for many years.
So what is the reason?
Tribalism becomes the suicide habit
The terrible type of social amnesia.
Tribalism has become our trade mark
The logo on our forehead.
We are the dry bones in the valley of the dead
All the eagles have gathered to defecate on our carcasses.
Carcasses in the valley of fate
There is nothing left of us.
Tribalism is pouring us into the pit before our time.
One by one
We are the dead
The left over
This is you
This is me
This is us.
This is South Sudan
May God of Ancestors Bless South Sudan
